Google Drive Is Here – Is Cloud Storage the Way of the Future?

Google drive

While Google Drive sounds like it has something to do with the search company’s much buzzed about driverless car project, it’s actually a completely different direction in Google’s quest for world domination.

The 5GB cloud-storage service, which launched this week, allows users to access information from any of their computing devices. It also includes the functionality of Google docs, which means you can use it to collaborate with colleagues in real time on documents, spreadsheets and presentations. (Learn more in the video below.)

Google Drive installs as an app on Windows, OS X and Android. Among other features is a tagging system, which allows quick access to all your information, including PDF files and photos.

“Keep everything, share anything,” is Google’s motto for the system. Of course, you will also be sharing all your information with Google. (Bur, really, you are probably already sharing much more personal stuff with the folks over at Facebook.)

While the service’s first 5GB of storage is free, you can chose to upgrade to 25GB for $2.49 a month, 100GB for $4.99 a month or 1TB for $49.99 per month.

So, is Google Drive something you’re planning on downloading?
