The feature allows users to save relevant files to their Drive account with a single click. It’s similar to the cloud storage service Dropbox, but has the advantage of being integrated easily into a number of select websites with two simple lines of HTML.

Adding the Save to Drive button requires only the addition of the script and HTML tag in a website. The new feature can also be added through JavaScript API for better programmatic control of the creation of the button in web pages. The HTML code can be found in the Google developers’ blogspot which regularly feature news and insights on Google platforms and tools.

The Save to Drive button works in the context of the browser used by users, allowing them to save files that require HTTP authorization without any separate customization from the website.

Images, ebooks, PDF files, pay stubs, or session cookies can be saved easily in the cloud with the Save to Drive button. Once saved to Google Drive, users can then share their files to friends or save them for future reference. Google’s new Save to Drive button has been integrated by several companies into their sites including Bigstock, Fotolia, O’Reilly, Zern Payroll, and Ultimate Software.
