Google is once again set to expand upon its internet fueled services, by officially inaugurating the Google Service. This touted cloud service goes beyond the ambit of Google Docs by accentuating upon the networked file storage factor, just like its nearest competitor Dropbox.
In allusion to its cloud storage attributes, the service starts off with a 5GB free offer for a myriad of files like documents, videos, photos and PDFs. However, interested users can upgrade this offer to 25GB by paying $2.49 a month, or to 100GB by paying $4.99 a month, or finally to 1TB by paying $49.99 a month. These paid accounts will also automatically expand your Gmail storage to 25GB (from the current scope of 10GB).
Coming to its functionality, the Google Drive will include the previous cloud oriented advantages of Google Docs, like allowing you to work in real time with others over the net. Of course, that encompasses a pretty expansive scope like sharing of files and content, sending messages and comments, and receiving notifications. Moreover, the service will also have its improved search feature with keyword triggers and filtering attributes.
Finally, regarding the impact of this service, the exalted company has envisaged the Drive to be an open platform that would provide a kind of 'seamless' experience for Google users. In fact, third party developers are already collaborating with Google to design apps for future interactive features.
