Google let fly an announcement that PC and Mac desktop app for Google Drive is going the way of the Dodo bird.
As the new alternative, customers will have two options.
For those using the G Suite service, the solution is called Drive File Stream, an app that will allow for quicker, more streamlined access to their files and also the ability to choose which ones are made available offline.
For non-G Suite users, another app called Backup and Sync will be the way to go.
It will have all the same features as the Google Drive desktop app that most users currently access on a regular basis, but with an added photo capability as well.
This seems to be a move towards making Google more of a one-stop shop for your online cloud storage.
The Backup and Sync app will allow users to store a large amount of photos, provided they're cool with the slight compression that will happen during the upload process.
If not, they'll have to pay extra for more storage.
After the debacle that was Google+, the company is hoping that, with this change, more customers will be housing all of their data in their infrastructure instead of with other providers.
