Google Drive is Live

Google LogoToday Google announced their newest offering, Google Drive.

Everyone gets 5GB of storage free.  Other price points are:

  • $2.49/month – 25 GB
  • $4.99/month – 100GB
  • $49.99/month – 1 TB (yes, 1000 GB)

Sure to be a major competitor to DropBox, as their prices beat out any competitor that I know of (if you know otherwise, let me know).

The new Google Drive service is available for PC / Mac, and Android devices currently.  iPhone and iPad apps are sure to follow soon.  Full integration with Google Docs is sure to push adoption of the technology (the instant sharing of edits is a great feature for remote collaboration).

In addition to the sharing / storage, Google Drive will offer Optical Character Recognition so you can search your static image files for copy.  I predict Google will expand this service to integrate with facial recognition, and image based searches.

It seems like although the service is “Released” that some people don’t yet have their drive ready for use.  Google will likely be rolling out service
