With this app you can back up to Google Drive and Photos on Mac


Google has launched a new application for all MacOS users today This application merges the two backup services of Alphabet, Google Drive and Google Photos.

The new application for backing up in Google Photos and Drive

This new application for macOS would replace the old Google Drive app that allowed to synchronize folders with the folders of the cloud. But with this new  Backup & Sync application , it also includes integration with the Google Photos service .
The new app lets you sync with both Google Drive and Google Photos.

This will not only synchronize the local files that we want as a backup in Drive, but also the photos when we connect a camera or a SD card with photos in Photos, for example.

So this becomes the ideal tool if you want to have your backup copies in the cloud. In addition, thanks to the menu that is installed in the top bar , you can have complete control over what is being copied at that time and the amount of storage you have left in your plan.

Where do you download the Backup & Sync app  ?

The Backup & Sync app , or "Backup and sync from Google," as it was called in Spanish, can not be downloaded from the Mac App Store. At this time, Google does not distribute any application for Mac through its application store, but does so through its website. That's why this is no exception, and the application can be downloaded from the Drive or Photos downloads page . 
It should be noted that this app is compatible with OS X Mavericks (10.9) or higher, so all recent operating systems are supported. Despite this, the accounts of G Suite , professional Alphabet tools are not supported , although the company has said that a version for these professional users will be available soon.

Conclusion

As far as I can see without much inquiring in this application, the app is well thought out, and certainly is intended for all those who have contracted a payment plan , because the 15GB of the basic plan fall short very fast if used for Backups. Therefore, I think this application is great for those who already use the service , but that is not something as decisive as for those who are not yet users decide to pass.
