Google Drive is a collaboration and document management software that lets teams work together on content. Users can store and access files across many Google apps, such as Docs, Slides, Sheets, Forms and more, and they can also set permissions of viewing and editing capabilities of each file.

In this post, we’ll talk about how much Google Drive costs for individuals and businesses.

Is Google Drive free?

Google Drive is free for individuals who have their own personal Google account. But businesses that want premium features that Google offers will need to purchase Google Workspace, a collaboration software suite.

Does Google Workspace have a free trial?

Yes, prospects can sign up for a 14-day free trial. Once the trial ends, they can choose from any of the pricing plans.
