Google Drive

Google Drive is one of the more useful apps that you can add to your slack app. A lot of users online use Google Drive to store documents and other files online. So why is this app so useful for Slack? For one, it allows you to share Google Drive apps directly from the Slack app. If you have not connected your Google Drive to your Slack yet, then the app itself will guide you through that process. Also one thing to note that once you share a file in Slack, it will not be stored on the app, it will be stored on your Google Drive.
