Google Drive is the latest app to hit a truly historic mark on the Play Store. The file storage and synchronization service this Christmas reached 5 billion downloads.
This app joins a restricted group of applications, including names like Facebook, Gmail or Chrome. However, this is a number that has a lot to say to you.
Google Drive comes preinstalled on Android devices
Like other apps that have already reached this number of downloads, it is good to remember that they are very driven by coming pre-installed on Android devices.
This is because Google has long required Drive to be one of the apps preinstalled on devices with its operating system. Counting as a download simply requires the user to link a Google account to the device in question.
As for Google Drive itself, it turns out to be one of the most used file storage and sync services on the market. Although driven by Google, it is a service of high quality.
The Google service was launched on April 24, 2012, and also houses Google Docs. It works for free, allowing users to store up to 15GB in the cloud. By paying, you can have more space by calling these plans Google One since 2018.
