Google delays Backup and Sync's release

Google Drive to become Backup and Sync in the coming weeks, June 28 launch postponed
Google Drive to become Backup and Sync
Although Google Drive was supposed to be replaced by Backup and Sync on June 28, it looks like this change has been delayed by a few weeks and, sadly, there is no accurate launch date to talk about at this stage.

Back when Google announced its plans to replace the Google Drive app with a more powerful tool known as Backup and Sync, we also got a date for its introduction. Sadly, June 28 is now in the past, and Google Drive is still around, but the switch is still in the cards. However, the date when Google Backup and Sync would finally arrive is not public yet.

Google's official blog post about the changes mentioned above was published on June 14 and quietly updated on June 26, just two days before the launch date mentioned earlier. The update text in red says the following: "Based on your valuable feedback, we’ve decided to delay the launch of Backup and Sync while we make improvements to the product. We’re planning to launch in the next several weeks, but please monitor the G Suite Release Calendar for the specific date."

At last, it is also worth pointing out that the G Suite product release page reads "July 12," but this does not match the "several weeks" mentioned in the quote above. Well, it seems we just need to wait and see.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
