Google’s Google Drive made its debut on Tuesday but now what we all are expecting in what way it will integrate with as many as operating systems as possible. What at the top we all are looking for is that how it will get integrated with Chrome OS? In a recent interview with Wired, Sundar Pichai, the person who oversees development of the company’s Chrome products as well as its Google Apps online services says Google will tightly integrate its new Google Drive online storage service with an upcoming version of its Chrome OS operating system. “With Chromebooks, [Google Drive] is even more powerful,” Pichai says, “because it just starts working naturally. Your local drive is also Google Drive. This makes it really powerful because you just don’t think about it.”

“We’ll…effectively integrate [Google] Drive into the native file system of Chrome OS,” says Scott Johnson, Google’s Google Drive product manager. “All the core OS functionality will use [Google] Drive as a place to store data — if that’s what you opt in to.” According to Pichai and Johnson, Google Drive will integrate will version 20 of Chrome OS. An early incarnation of version 19 is currently under test, prior to its official release. The long awaited 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.
