Google Drive for desktop release notes
Note: To avoid compatibility issues and service interruptions with Drive for desktop, stay on a version that Google released within the last 12 months. For details, go to Manage Drive for desktop updates for your users.
In August 2023, we're ending support for Drive for desktop on Windows 8/8.1, Windows Server 2012, and all 32-bit versions of Windows. To avoid service interruption, Windows users should upgrade to Windows 10 (64 bit) or higher before August 2023. Users of a 32-bit version of Windows can still access Drive through a browser.
