Reddit: Do you want Google Drive and Google Photos on Linux?

Wednesday 8th of July 2015 10:10:02 AM

I want them too and the only way to make this happen is to say to Google we want them!

  1. Go to Google Drive on the web (https://www.google.com/drive/):
  2. Click the settings menu (the gear icon)
  3. Click Help.
  4. Click Send feedback.
  5. Say you want it on Linux
  6. Repeat for Google photos (https://www.google.com/photos/)

If we are enough to ask maybe Google will listen us and make Google Drive and Google Photos available on Linux.
