Google Drive is a personal cloud storage service from Google that helps users store and synchronize digital content across computers, laptops and numerous mobile devices such as Android-powered tablet and smartphone devices and (coming soon, according to Google) Apple iOS-powered iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches.
As one might expect, Google Drive additionally provides advanced search capabilities for finding specific information within files, and users can also share and collaborate with others on documents via the service’s built-in access to the Google Docs suite of editing tools.
Like the competing iCloud service from Apple, Google Drive provides users with an initial 5 GB of cloud storage for free, with additional storage capacity available for purchase on a monthly basis — currently 25 GB for $2.49 per month and 100 GB for $4.99 per month.
