Google recently announced their latest round of spring cleaning. Google Reader made headlines for inclusion in that list. Google Cloud Connect was another product that was announced on that day.
Google Drive provides similar functionality as Cloud Connect and is available on more platforms. Google has now stated that Google Apps users would no longer be able to use Cloud Connect after April 30.
The company is advising the users to switch to Drive for the same purposes.
Google Cloud Connect was designed to enable direct connectivity between Microsoft Office and Google Docs.
