5. Purchase Extension



You can learn more about functionality of extension here:

Since both extensions share same base so it is obviously safe to use both of them because Google is still watching out everything.

You can do this now.

Hope it helps! :slightly_smiling_face:


Is Extention asking for this permission?

No, it only adds permissions to the manifest.

I think the app will not be accepted by google

Why do you think so?


Even if that were true (which I doubt), it wouldn't have anything to do with these permissions.


ChangeLog Version 2

  • Some internal changes and minor bug fixes
  • Periodic libs update

Just published a guide about creating backup system with this extension.

For a survey app which is used to collect voice responses from users, can I use this to copy the voice response files from app to my google drive?

Yes, but that would be quite complicated. As first you'll have to upload file to user's drive and then share with your gmail address.

Instead, you should use this extension:

It will upload file directly to your drive.

ChangeLog Version 3

  • SAF uri can be used for Uploading and Updating file
