Google offers its users a wide array of services that they have cleverly tied and integrated into each other, with the idea being that it would create a more cohesive system that just works across the board. Google Drive is one of the features and acts as the backup of choice for Android, like the photos you take, videos, and even messages.
This doesn’t mean that Google Drive is the best, and if you feel that maybe Google knows a bit too much about you, more than you’re comfortable with, then it might be time to start exploring some alternative options. Some of these alternative backup services are free, some are paid, but maybe there could be something else that you might find that Google isn’t offering.
Speaking of Apple, iCloud is the default cloud storage for Apple’s iOS and macOS users, but it doesn’t mean that Windows or Android users can’t benefit from it. It offers a web interface so that users can access it even if they don’t own an iPhone, iPad, or Mac computer, but if you do own any of Apple’s products, then that’s where iCloud truly shines.
It allows users to seamlessly backup photos, contacts, notes, messages, browsing history, and more across multiple devices, so you can easily pick up from where you left off.
