Google Drive has been released on end of April 2012. You can upload and access all of your files including videos, photos, Google Docs, PDFs and so on. In short, you can store all documents in Google Drive with 5GB free cloud storage. Besides that, you can choose to upgrade the plan to 25GB fpr $2.49 per month, 100GB for $4.99 and 1TB for $49.99 per month. Any paid upgrade will automatically upgrade your Gmail account storage from 7GB to 25GB. I’m more interested on Google Drive application in Windows, Android as well as Google Drive in iOS. Let’s joy the Google Drive now!!
With Google Drive, you can:
- Create and collaborate. Google Docs is built right into Google Drive, so you can work with others in real time on documents, spreadsheets and presentations. Once you choose to share content with others, you can add and reply to comments on anything (PDF, image, video file, etc.) and receive notifications when other people comment on shared items.
- Store everything safely and access it anywhere (especially while on the go). All your stuff is just… there. You can access your stuff from anywhere—on the web, in your home, at the office, while running errands and from all of your devices. You can install Drive on your Mac or PC and can download the Drive app to your Android phone or tablet. We’re also working hard on a Drive app for your iOS devices. And regardless of platform, blind users can access Drive with a screen reader.
- Search everything. Search by keyword and filter by file type, owner and more. Drive can even recognize text in scanned documents using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology. Let’s say you upload a scanned image of an old newspaper clipping. You can search for a word from the text of the actual article. We also use image recognition so that if you drag and drop photos from your Grand Canyon trip into Drive, you can later search for [grand canyon] and photos of its gorges should pop up. This technology is still in its early stages, and we expect it to get better over time.
Before you have Google Drive in any of your machine, you need to have a Gmail account. Register here one for free if you do not have it.
