So if I have a compressed RAR file in Google Drive, I can just tap on it and it opens like if it were a normal folder. And from there I can just click on one of the files, let’s say an EPUB file, and it opens in my preferred ebook reader app. Exactly as it was a file I had in a folder and not in a compressed RAR archive.
And Google Drive is so tightly integrated that it’s actually is part of the file system of Android. You can get to your files from any app, and you can save files to Google Drive from any app. When I was an iPhone and especially an iPad user, I wished that iCloud Drive worked exactly liked that. But it still doesn’t. Not by far.
