What’s Google Drive and Evernote?

Evernote is good at note taking, organizing and archiving, and everything stored in Evernote is a note. A note can be a piece of formatted text, a full webpage or webpage excerpt, a photograph, a voice memo, or a handwritten “ink” note.

A tool developed by Google company that similar to Evernote is Google Keep, which allows you to archive a note and keep it on your home screen, but organize notes into their own categories or separate work spaces. Google Docs is also released by Google, letting you create documents, spreadsheets, and presentations and easily share them to your friends. Now, Google Drive is a new home for Google Docs and Google Keep, known as “create and collaborate”, “store everything safely and access it anywhere” and “search everything”.

One big difference between Evernote and Google Drive - notes in Evernote should be small size, which is not a limitation of Google Drive. So many users like to use both Evernote and Google Drive, and it may be a surprise to them that they can export Evernote to Google Drive or add Google Drive files to Evernote.

What’s the two solutions to add Google Drive files to Evernote?

Solution1: link Evernote to Google Drive

After linking Evernote to Google Drive, you can add Google Drive files to Evernote notes as attachments or as pasted links (URLs) without leaving Evernote.

1.Link Evernote to Google Drive

This connection gives Evernote permission to view and access your Google Drive files, but Google cannot view or search any of the notes in your Evernote account.

2.Two ways to add Google Drive files to Evernote:

  • Select a Google Drive file to attach

When you attach a Google Drive file to Evernote, you are just adding a text link (URL) to a note. None of the contents in that Google Drive file are actually saved to your Evernote account, so internet access is required for viewing Google Drive attachments.

  • Copy and paste a Google Drive file link (URL) into a note and from any application outside Evernote:
  1. From any email, chat messaging, or any other kind of application
  2. Directly from your Google Drive by selecting 'Get shareable link' from the options menu (accessed using right-click or 'Shift + click')
  3. By clicking the 'Share' button in any opened Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides files
