Google Drive has been launched at last, correcting our predictions and bringing Google into the clouds. Google claims it is targeted towards sharing and keeping everything in your life in sync. As usual here is the video-
At the moment it provides 5 GB of space for free. You can pay more (about $2.50 per month) for 25 GB. It supports over 30 file types which you can access anytime from anywhere, even if you don’t have the relevant software installed. It is available for PC, Mac and Android devices. Another version for iOS will be coming soon.
It has some great features like sharing your files with others and letting them edit or comment on the files. The files are instantly available on Google+, so you can share them in your circles. Android apps get a great new add-on with Google Drive as you can also upload files directly from within the apps. You can also just send the recipient a link to your file in Google Drive and deliver a mail attachment easily. You can create a discussion too, to discuss with your team-mates on the current project or with your friends about a once-in-a-lifetime party! Like Time Machine on Mac OS, Google Drive also features a Timeline feature that lets you select revisions to your files for about a month and save/recover a revision.
We haven’t got access to the service as yet but we will surely post a review as soon as we get in! Till then, stay tuned. You may want to read about other cloud-services or 10 best apps for your smartphone/tablet.
