I don't use Matlab Drive at all, but if it works similarly to Google Drive and OneDrive there will be an option to choose where Matlab Drive physically stores the files on your hard disk?
If that's the case you can just set that folder to be inside your Google Drive folder and it should work.
This isn't really integrating them though, it just wraps your Matlab Drive inside Google Drive which sets you up for all sorts of problems in the future.
You should consider just using one or the other; why do you need both for your Matlab functions? I have used Google Drive for a long time with no problems. Or instead use something like GitHub which can be integrated with Matlab now.
Hope this helps,

Hmmm, apparently you can't change the save location for Matlab drive:
"File Location. Folder location for MATLAB Drive. You cannot change this information."
But you might be able to add the Matlab Drive folder (when you get the path using the above steps) to your Google drive sync:
But again, I really wouldn't recommend doing this, you will save yourself a lot of headaches by just keeping things seperate or just using one service.

I had it working for the longest time with Dropbox but it quit working about 5 months ago. Not sure what changed but I just get "unknown error" now.
As for why to do it? Sometimes I can access my Dropbox but not MATLAB Drive (or MATLAB Online), because of IT settings. I don't make the rules, I just have to live with them.
I will probably move it out of Dropbox for now but I'm still trying to find the solution.
