The wait is finally over as Google has just made Google Drive official. As expected, the service will offer 5GB of storage space for documents, videos, photos, PDFs and other files, and Google Docs is built-in to the service. Users will be able to upgrade to 25GB of space for $2.49 a month, 100GB for $4.99 a month, or 1TB for $49.99 a month, and upgrading to a paid account will expand your Gmail storage to 25GB.
Here’s what Google Drive offering:
- Drive gives new users 5 GB free for each user account. Upgrades are 25GB for $2.49/month, 100GB for $4.99/month or even 1TB for $49.99/month
- Docs storage does not count against your Google Drive quota
- Desktop apps for Windows and OS X are available today. Android is there too but iOS integration is coming in the next few weeks
- Drive will allow 30+ file types to open natively in the browser, including Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and HD video
Google Drive is available now for PC, Mac, and Android, and will come soon to the iPhone and iPad.
