Google Drive supports backup in new Mac computers.. Here are the details


Google announced that users of Mac computers powered by the new Processor (M1) from Apple will soon be able to access the full range of its products and applications, where the company announced that it succeeded in solving the remaining compatibility problems affecting the processes of synchronization and backup of files in the service (Google Drive) Google Drive.
What are the details?

According to Google, the backup and synchronization process works well with Google Drive and Google Photos, as it was not available to users of Mac computers with a processor (M1) when these computers were launched in November last year, however, an update of the company published at the beginning of January indicated that this particular problem has been solved completely.

Google said in the publication: "Version 3.54 and later versions of Google Workspace with macOS Big Sur correspond to the fix of problems with The M1 processors that prevented the operation of previous versions from keeping a backup and allowing synchronization for some users, in addition to performance improvements and additional bug repairs."

In addition to backup and synchronization, users of M1-powered Mac computers won't wait long before they can take advantage of Drive File Stream — currently called Google Drive for desktop — an on-demand enterprise cloud service that gives users a quick and easy way to access and work directly on Google Drive files without having to download them to the computer to maintain storage space.

It is worth mentioning that when Apple announced that it would use its Own M1 processors instead of Intel processors in its new computers, there were concerns about the compatibility of applications with the new processor, and although there are still problems that continue to appear in the compatibility of applications with the Processor (M1), application developers are working hard to find appropriate solutions to make their applications work well in mac computers powered by the new Mac processor previously launched.
