  • Easy Meeting Recording

    Connect with up to 250 meeting participants and record meetings directly to Drive, making it easy to share with those who couldn't attend. If you can’t catch it live, no problem – meetings can easily be recorded and saved to Drive, so you can watch and share later.

  • Drive File Stream

    Sync Drive files directly from the cloud with your Mac or PC, freeing up disk space and network bandwidth. Any changes you or your collaborators make are automatically updated and synced, so you’ll always have the latest version.

  • Work on Any Device, Anywhere

    G Suite Essentials apps are available on all major platforms, enabling you to work seamlessly across your browser, mobile device, tablet, and computer.

  • Offline Access

    If you don’t have access to the internet, no problem – you can still create, view, and edit files in Docs, Sheets, and Slides. Any changes you make while offline will be automatically synced as soon as you have an internet connection.
