Use your own Google Drive API keys with StableBit CloudDrive.

When to Use

Using your own API keys from Google may offer performance benefits because they will give you your own quota limits. Application-wide quota limits will no longer apply to you.


  • Open:
  • If Google Drive is not listed as an available API:
    • Click Enable APIs and Services.
