Google Drive on Android Tablets
Use Google Drive on Android Phones and Tablets and keep the data in sync with desktop PC and other devices using the same Google Drive account. First, you need to download the Google Drive app to the tablet.
- Go to Google Play store and search for “Google Drive”
- Click on Install and select the Android device you want to install to
Now, you need a Google Drive account. When you start the app the first time, it will ask you to log in using your Google account, which is your Gmail email address. Google automatically gives you free space on your Google Drive.
In order to keep the data in sync on all your devices, you need to have Google Drive installed on each device. For your desktop computer, sign into your Google/Gmail account. You will see a square set of dots in the upper right hand corner of the screen.
If you do not see Google Drive on the list, click on “Even More from Google” and search for Google Drive on the next screen. When you click on the Google Drive icon, the install process will begin.
By installing the Google Drive app on your desktop, you will have an icon on your list of favorites in the File Explorer app.
To place a file on your Google Drive, just copy and paste any file into the Google Drive link in File Explorer. By doing this, the file will be copied to the Google Drive and become accessible to all your devices connected to the same account.
