Download files from web pages or other cloud drive directly to Google Drive with MultCloud, an online cloud storage management app free for most cloud drive users.
Usually, online cloud drive storage users have to first download web page files to local storage, then upload these files to their cloud drives. Besides, if they want to migrate files from one cloud to another, they also have to take local drive as transit, download the files from one cloud storage to computer first and then upload them to another cloud.
Then, is it possible to download directly to Google Drive? Is there a way or an app which can do so?
Just as said above, a lot of cloud storage users wonder whether they can download files directly to Google Drive or not. Here, I would like to tell them the answer is “Yes”. It is possible to download files directly to cloud drive storages. Yet, they have to make use of a third party software to complete the task. That is to say, Google Drive itself can’t download files directly to itself from websites or other clouds.
