Exactly how soon will Google Drive for Mac/PC be going away for good?

Users within my organization who use our corporate Google Drive have been getting the message shown in the screenshot "Google Drive for Mac/PC is going away soon. We recommend installing Drive File Stream to continue syncing."

We are wondering exactly how much longer it will be until Google Drive will be going away permanently.

Has Google published any information as to when this might be?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Can you clarify this?

Someone else told me that it is May 12th, not March 12th.

There is some additional discussion at this posting:


If the application is mission-critical, I would not bet on the May date.  "May" is too close to "Mar" and "y" is too close to "r" on the keyboard.
