Google Drive for Mac/PC is being replaced by Google Drive File Stream, any impact on tGoogleDriveCopy?

Question

Google will deprecate Google Drive for Mac/PC on December 11, 2017. Two new products will replace it: "Drive File Stream" or "Backup and Sync". Will Talend's tGoogleDriveCopy continue to work?

 

Answer

According to the G Suite Updates blog, Google Drive for Mac/PC will no longer be supported starting on December 11th, 2017, and it will stop working on March 12, 2018. The Drive infrastructure will remain, and will be accessed through the new Drive File Stream.

 

The tGoogleDriveCopy component does not rely on the Google Drive for Mac/PC app; instead it uses the APIs. There has been no announcement of any changes to the APIs used to access Drive, so when Google makes this change, Talend expects that there will be no impact to tGoogleDriveCopy.
