Uninstalled immediately. I apologize, but this app is absolute garbage for a couple reasons: 1. Layers are unworkable This app creates new layers for EACH brushstroke and it becomes not helpful and you can't work nor draw. The layer tool seems helpful at first but as you try working with them they are useless. 2.Brushes automatically format to a 'lasso' tool Instead of just creating normal lines, brushes will most often just turn into a lasso tool and becomes difficult to change back. Not only that but some brushes are just useless and not intuitive. I hate some of them so much. Some of the names don't even describe what they are. "Paintbrush" is more of an airbrush. 3. Selection screens suck. When you select tools the selection pop-up will jolt upward or downward, always making you click the wrong tool or layer. Not only that but all selections and wording are confusing. Nor do the icons make sense. 4. Visually unappealing. This app is so ugly, I am aware this is a petty complaint but colors don't match, the whole aesthetic of the site is inconsistent, from space to colorful to bland. I can't understand the site, and on top of that even when it's colorful or "cute" I still find the overall appearance ugly, gross and unpolished. 5. Better options. There are just so many better free options and applications than this site right off the bat and trying out this app is just a genuine waste of time. Please, for my sanity and your own DO NOT install this app.

Very intuitive and easy to use. Teams whiteboard has been glitchy and hard to use. Thank you, Google for making this available to teachers for online distance math instruction.

The app claims to work with Google Drive, but when I click "Open With," and select the app, nothing happens, except a screen that says it's attached, but it's not. Confused. How does it open from Google Drive?

I like it's app better than THIS Google drive add on. Both ways it certainly a helpful item! It isn't blocked in school I'm in 6 grade and it works perfectly fine! Are you in elementary school? my siblings have more stuff blocked than me, but everything (including minecraft) fun is blocked.
