Google Drive is a cloud storage service that allows you to save documents, images, videos, and more. On your computer, you can access these files from Google Drive’s website or by using the Google Drive app, which is available for Android and iOS. The Google Drive app allows you to view and edit files stored on your Google Drive account.
However, you can also play music files directly through the Google Drive app, which allows you to play audio files stored locally on your device or in the cloud. Here’s how to play music files directly through the Google Drive app.
