I just received this email from Google:
Hello from Google,
We announced last year that we’re deprecating web hosting in Google Drive for users and developers. Our records show that you might have used this feature to publish a webpage or serve other web assets.
On Aug 31, 2016, we will discontinue serving content via googledrive.com/host/[id] and the webpages will not be accessible anymore.
As an alternative to web hosting in Drive, we recommend:
- Blogger—An easy and free way to host websites.
- Firebase Hosting— An alternative if you’re using the web-hosting feature to serve static webpages with items on Drive.
If you have additional questions or need assistance, please contact Google Support.
Sincerely,On my presentations in Risevision i have literally hundreds of links to images hosted on Google Drive.
The Google Apps Team
This is no more then a HTTP link like this: http://drive.google.com/uc?id=uniqueIDtotheImage
With other words, i am accessing this image through the webserver/hosting functionality of Google Drive.
Will this mean my images are not accessible anymore after August 31? Or does this announcement mean we cannot access .html etc files anymore.
