Introduction to Google Drive for Digital Signage

Google Drive for digital signage lets you access your Google Drive folders and files directly in your library. This way you don’t have to download files to your computer and then upload them to your library at The files you see are those you can use, so if you have files in your Google Drive that aren’t optimized or usable for digital signage they will not show.

Remember, we also offer a Google Drive Content plugin.
