While Teams Drives are a new solution created to help teams & organizations better manage their files, using Team Drives as a developer won’t require you to learn something completely new. The Google Drive API you know & love is already “Team Drives-enabled.” Yes, there are new method collections to help you manage Team Drives programmatically, but most other Team Drive file operations can be performed with the existing Drive API methods. In this video, Google engineer Wesley Chun gives a high-level overview of Team Drives from a developer perspective, then gets you started with a sample app covering some basic Team Drives operations.
