The cloud storage and file sharing market just got a whole lot more competitive today. Google Drive is shaping up to be a direct competitor for Dropbox, but there are already a few reasons why Drive might leave Dropbox in the dust.
View Files in Browser
This is a huge win for graphic designers, as with Google Drive you can view almost anything right in your browser. Case in point: Adoble Illustrator and Photoshop files. You can use it to show a client a graphic, even if they do not have Photoshop or Illustrator installed on their computer.
Perfectly Integrates with Google Apps
Google Apps users rejoice. You can set-up Google Drive to work with your Google Apps email addresses.
Have a file you want a client to review? If you send it to them via Google Drive, they’ll have the option to comment right there in the file sharing interface. This will cut down on unnecessary emails and keep the conversation right in one spot.
Competitive Pricing Model
Google Drive users will start out with 5GB free right out of the gate, but if that’s not enough space, you can upgrade at very competitive prices. Pricing plans start at just $2.49 per month for an additional 25GB.
