Android developers have been able to use Google Drive tor backups and restore data of apps and games for its users during the past two years. Android devices also have been able to make backup copies of some data such as installed applications, device settings, call history and more in Google Drive and restore them on the same device after a hard reset or on a new one.
however, these backups remained mostly hidden in Google Drive. Although it is true that you could go to the website drive.google.com, Settings, and then go to the tab Manage programs to see what applications are using storage space. But this was a hidden trick that only a few people knew.
