Google Drive, Google Drive, drives all the way!! Folks, today is the day you’ve all been waiting for—Google has launched Google Drive. So what were you expecting it to be? We have suggested, it will be a revamped Google Docs packed with new desktop and mobile apps to sync the files offline. So we are spot on, the Google Drive app has reached Google Play Store and is claimed to be the “evolution of Docs.”
The service will offer 5GB cloud storage for free while you can get more storage with $5 for 20GB, now higher plans may take it up to 16TB. The new Android app brings new options for finding newly edited, uploaded or shared files and various updates, including changes in UI. You can navigate through the app easily, choose your contacts to share, upload/download any file-all in the mobile app.
Now if you rush to download the app from Google Play Store, make sure to read the terms of service which is quite scary. While other cloud service gives you the complete ownership of content, Google keeps the right if your stuff to itself, here is what the TOS says “When you upload or otherwise submit content to our Services, you give Google (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content.”
The iOS app is on its way. So folks, now tell us what do you feel about it? Would Google drive be able to beat Dropbox and Box with such TOS?
