Google Drive Replaces Google Docs, 5 GB of FREE Space

After the rumours that have been flying around over the past weeks, Google has finally launched Google Drive - a service that allows you to keep everything, share anything. This new service (and app) essentially replaces Google Docs, so don't be surprised if your Google Docs app disappears on your Android device - it is instead replaced with Google Drive.

The new Google Drive Android App Features:

  • Keep everything. Share anything.
  • With Google Drive, you can store all your files in one place, so you can access them from anywhere and share them with others 
  • Use the Google Drive Android app to access your photos, documents, videos and other files stored on your Google Drive
  • Upload files to Google Drive directly from your Android device
  • Share any file with your contacts 
  • Access files others have shared with you on Google Drive
  • Make any file available offline so you can access them even when you don't have an Internet connection
  • Create and edit Google documents with rich text formatting 
  • Edits to your Google documents appear to collaborators in seconds
  • Make quick changes to spreadsheets
  • View your PDFs, presentations and more
  • Upload and convert files to the Google Docs format
  • Take a photo of printed text and convert it to a Google document
  • Optimized experience to take advantage of larger screens for tablet users, Honeycomb (Android 3.0+)

Upon signup on the Google Drive site, you'll get 5 GB FREE with upgrade options available for space up till 25 GB at a price. Google Drive isn't available for my region/email just yet, I'm still waiting for it and I guess it'll slowly roll out over the week(s) and everyone should get access to Google Drive soon. Go ahead and grab the new Google Drive Android App if you already have access to Google Drive:
