However, this week Evernote and Google have announced that the two services are now linked.  By linking the two, Evernote users can now access their Drive files in Evernote obviating the need to switching between them and making the flow more intuitive and faster.

The Evernote blog states: “All the files you keep in Drive are now easier to access in Evernote. Now, instead of seeing only URL links, anyone can browse anything created or stored in Google Drive right in Evernote notebooks. With this integration, Evernote customers can add any file in Drive to their notes without leaving Evernote. And any changes to files in Google Drive will dynamically update in Evernote.

“This integration opens the door for millions of Google Drive customers to experience the power of Evernote. Use Google Drive to store your ideas, memories, and work. Then, take advantage of Evernote’s powerful organizational features to make sense of them all and inspire new ideas. “Once people see how well Evernote and Google Drive work together, they’ll use both products intuitively,” says Evernote CEO Chris O’Neill. “For Evernote enthusiasts, this is a natural progression. Google is organizing the world’s information, and now Google Drive and Evernote are helping you do just that with your information.”

Evernote Beta

To access this new facility you need to have Chrome or Evernote for Android and sign up for the beta version of Evernote.  When you create a new note you can click on the small Drive logo in the menu toolbar and this will take you to your Google Drive folders.  If you make any changes to a file in Evernote this is mirrored in the file in Drive.

The blog continues: “ This integration opens the door for millions of Google Drive customers to experience the power of Evernote. Use Google Drive to store your ideas, memories, and work. Then, take advantage of Evernote’s powerful organizational features to make sense of them all and inspire new ideas. “Once people see how well Evernote and Google Drive work together, they’ll use both products intuitively,” says Evernote CEO Chris O’Neill. “For Evernote enthusiasts, this is a natural progression.
