"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.

In regards to question 1, I have not heard anything about changes to support for the Drive, Docs, Sheets, etc apps for Android and Apple. Your users should have no issues accessing files in Google Drive from their mobile devices with those apps. The apps should automatically update whenever Google pushes out an update to the respective app stores based on the device settings.

In regards to question 2, I'll let someone else who might have run into that issue take that one up, or I will look into possible reasons and solutions later on.

Regards,
Martin

It is NOT going away, and usage from mobile devices basically don't change. Neither does using web apps and documents.  The only real change is the apps for Mac and Windows, and if you are a business or individual user. The new app will remove your old app, carry over settings, and install the new app in its place. Here is a good article on the change: https://www.popsci.com/google-drive-changes-desktop-clients

Oh, and on to your second questions, Google has listed the minimum requirements for Mac as: El Capitan (10.11) and up.
There are special instructions for High Sierra (10.13): https://support.google.com/drive/answer/7329379#macos

Sounds like a good time to move your client forward (unless they can't).
