Hold interviews or user tests with people in remote locations

Interview remote users while they test your product to record their responses and reactions. In a Google Meet video meeting, users can also share their screen, so you can see exactly what’s going on as they test the product. Remote team members can join the meeting to observe the study.

Store your research & design files in one place

Keep all your research files and recordings in Drive. All your content is private until you share it, so any sensitive information stays safe. If something goes wrong with a file, you can revert to a previous version.

If you’d rather work on Drive files from your desktop, use Google Drive for desktop. All your Drive files appear and are streamed on demand, so they don’t take up storage space on your computer. For details, see What can you do with Drive for desktop.
