The cloud computing service, Google Drive has finally released. This cloud base computing is meant for sharing, creating and collaborating and store data up to 1TB.
According to Sundar Pichai, Google representative, Google Drive will allow users to akses and download variety of files including videos, photos, pdfs and Google Docs.
“Everything could be done. You could access the file virtually anywhere. At home, office, or even when you are far away from your computer devices,” Pichai explained.
The Google Drive could also be used on Macintosh computers as well as other type of computer PCs, tablets and smartphone that have different operating system than Android. Users that have visual problem (blind or temporary blind) could also access the Drive using a special screen reader tool.
“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,” Pichai added.

Side note: users that paid for the Google Drive space account will also see an increment of storage space base on the monthly fee that they pay for, i.e: USD2.49 will get 25GB for your Gmail account.
