Google has announced on its blog that it will be replacing Google Drive with a new (and less bandwidth and hard-disk space-hungry) desktop app called Drive File Stream.

What Is Google Drive?

A search results will appear, you can select the appropriate file. Click “Download MP3” button to save the song on your PC. After you have successfully downloaded the MP3, open iTunes to transfer the file. Click “File” and choose “Add file to library”. Connect your iPad to PC using USB cable and sync your iPad to transfer songs. Click Launchpad (rocket icon) and look for Google Drive File Stream. Or click the Finder desktop, click the Go menu at the top of the screen and choose Applications. The app must include the words File Stream. If you found it, open and skip to 3 below. PlayOn lets you download any streaming video to your laptop or desktop computer, tablet, smartphone, iPad or iPhone. PlayOn works like a DVR works for your TV — only PlayOn downloads streaming movies or shows. PlayOn turns your favorite streaming videos into.mp4 files that you can easily move to any device to watch any time offline. Go to to access your Google Drive directly. Select the folder that you want to download. You can create a new folder by clicking the “New” button, then selecting the “Folder” option. Click the “More actions” button at the top-right of the window.


Google Drive has been Google’s file storage and synchronization service for the last 5 years. Encompassing Google Docs, Sheets and Slides and an office suite, it allows users to store files in the cloud, share files, and synchronize them across devices. It also offers offline capabilities.

Shut Down Early Next Year

Google has confirmed that not only will Google Drive for Mac no longer be supported from 11th December this year, but it will be shut down completely on 12th March 2018. Users will be reminded of the impending shut down with notifications from October 2017.

Two Replacement Options

Google intends to move customers towards choosing one of two replacement apps depending on whether they are business customers or consumers. These replacements are:

  1. For business users – Drive File Streamer.
  2. For a consumers – Backup and Sync (to replace both Google Drive and Google Photos Uploader apps). It’s free and you it can be used to back up the contents of your entire computer, or just selected folders.

What’s Better About File Drive Stream?

File Drive Stream, as the name suggests, streams a user’s Drive files directly from the cloud directly to their Mac or PC. This means that users are not using up the disk space on their computers, they’re not using up the valuable company network bandwidth, and they’re not worrying about syncing problems. This (with a fast and reliable broadband connection) should mean time and cost savings for businesses e.g. no waiting for files to download on an over-stretched company network, and no slowing down and clogging up of computers as they fill up with large files.

There is also the added security bonus of not storing important files on computers that could be lost, stolen, damaged or fall victim to hacks.

What Does This Mean For Your Business?

If File Drive Stream saves time, disk space, and hassle, and enables easy synchronization across the company, then it will be likely to save costs and add value, a combination that should be good news for businesses.

As far as the nitty gritty details go, Google has said that Drive File Stream has already been turned on, but download links will only be shown in the Drive interface if you currently show them for Backup and Sync / Google Drive for Mac/PC. Google suggests that businesses should consult its Help Centre for information on how to turn Drive File Stream on or off in a domain.

Also, Google advises that if you’re running both Drive File Stream and Backup and Sync on the same machine, you will be prompted to stop syncing My Drive with Backup and Sync in order to save disk space. Team Drive editors will find that they won’t be able to edit their Team Drive files when they’re opened in Drive File Stream (they’ll only be able to view them), and in order to edit these files, they’ll need to open them in Drive on the web.

Streaming is the wave of the future – but sometimes you want to download videos to your laptop to take with you or watch later offline.

PlayOn Cloud for iOS and Android devices is a mobile app that lets you record and download any video you already have access to from streaming services like Hulu, HBO, Netflix and more.
