Be careful if you use Google Drive! this rule will change from new year

As of January 2, 2024, Google Drive will no longer require third-party cookies for file downloads. For consumers who are worried about their privacy, this update will be a huge comfort. To track users’ devices and surfing habits, Google Drive used third-party cookies. Advertising could be targeted using this data. According to the business, “Drive will start downloading services without the need for third-party cookies on January 2, 2024.”


Preventing third-party cookies

By January 2, you must transition to the Drive and Docs publishing flow if you utilize an app or have special processes that depend on Drive download URLs. This modification occurs as Google gets ready to stop accepting third-party cookies.


According to Google,

the download service “will work to improve usability, security, and privacy for Drive users without the need for third-party cookies.” The business advised using the file’s Google Docs publishing URL for workspace files (including Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms file types). All Google Workspace, Customers, and individuals with personal Google Accounts are impacted by this change.


This declaration was made in June.

The business declared the end of ‘Drive for Desktop’ support for Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012, and all 32-bit Windows versions in June. The business added that browser-based access to Drive is still available for Windows 32-bit customers.


Search chips were first

In the meantime, the business unveiled a ‘Search Chips’ tool for Drive that enables users to filter anywhere in the web app based on parameters including file type, owner, and last changed date.
