Google launches Google Drive, 5GB of integrated online storage
Apr 24, 2012 12:16 PM –
Google have today just launched their cloud storage service known as Google Drive. News was leaked earlier by Google’s French blog which hinted at close integration with Google Docs and the ability to collaborate real-time with colleagues. I guess experience will tell if it in anyway feels like Google Wave. There is a distinct business-feel to the service, but it is nonetheless available for home users. Google Drive lets you save documents, images and videos and allows you up to 5GB storage free. There is the option to upgrade this to anywhere up to 100GB for a set fee.
Similar to Dropbox, users can download a Windows or Mac client and treat Google Drive like any other computer folder. The service features acute search abilities and both Android and iOS apps for mobile collaboration and storage. Providing users with 5GB, this obviously rivals services such as Dropbox (2GB), Cubby (5GB and currently by invite only) and Minus (10GB free) but then it is small compared to the 50GB which, as an Android user, you can get with a Box.net account.
There is already an Android app released and there will be an iOS app in the pipeline.
