What is Google Drive API
Google Drive API is a set of application programming interfaces (APIs) developed by Google that allows developers to integrate with the Google Drive cloud storage service. The Google Drive API allows developers to create applications that read, write, and sync files stored in Google Drive. The API also allows applications to upload and download files, create and delete folders, and manage user and group access to files.
Using the Google Drive API, developers can create applications that access and manipulate files in Google Drive. For example, an application can use the Google Drive API to connect to a user’s Google Drive and upload files, create folders, and share files with other users. Additionally, the API allows developers to create applications that can sync files between the user’s computer and Google Drive.
The Google Drive API provides developers with a powerful set of tools for accessing, manipulating, and sharing files stored in Google Drive. Using the API, developers can build applications that allow users to access, create, and share files stored in Google Drive. Additionally, developers can create applications that sync files between the user’s computer and Google Drive.
