If you remember, we talked about Google Drive (Cloud Storage) few days back. Well, its here now. Google Drive aka GDrive is officially live and comes with free 5GB cloud storage with desktop synchronization feature.
Google Drive basically is a step forward from your Google Docs. GDrive can be installed on one's Mac, PC or Android phone / tablet and soon you will have Google Drive iOS version too.
Drive allows you to store documents, videos, photos, Google Docs, PDFs, etc and it will be synced on all of your devices instantly. Android Drive version actually lets you edit documents within the app too.
Some of the features of Google Drive are really coo though.
- Lets say if you have scanned a newspaper clipping, a simple Search All within Drive will allow results to appear directly from that clipping.
- If you upload a shot of the Eiffel Tower, it'll show up whenever you search for the aforesaid icon.
- Moreover, Drive will allow you to open over 30 types of documents directly from a web browser, including HD video, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop and more
- You can also sync files that are shared with you.
As we suspected, Google Music will still be a different app/storage than Google Drive but Google Docs is now part of your 5GB Free Drive.
