Google Praised for Letting Users Order Data “Takeout”

Google has been widely praised for allowing users to export data from Google services for their own purposes. The service, known as Google Takeout, provides users with a centralized place to export their data from over twenty supported services, including Gmail, Drive, YouTube, and Hangouts. Reporters noted how the export feature both “makes perfect sense from a business perspective” and was “a positive step that’ll be beneficial to [Google’s] users.”
