Google to store your files in the clouds, access from any connected device
Devices connected to the Internet will soon be able to access their files and documents from any compatible device, that being a desktop or mobile phone, to use Google Docs’ cloud-based storage.
You will be able to search for files, do work online, edit and then save the document back up to the clouds without it ever being downloaded to your device. No longer will there be a need to load down your pockets with jump drives or fill up your personal email account.
“We’re happy to announce that over the next few weeks we will be rolling out the ability to upload, store and organize any type of file in Google Docs. With this change, you’ll be able to upload and access your files from any computer, all you need is an Internet connection,” wrote Vijay Bangaru, Product Manager, on Google Docs Blog.
Gmail and Google Docs users can upload any type file up to 250 MB to their 1GB of free cloud storage space. There is also the option to increase your storage space for $0.25 per GB per year, purchased in lots of 20GB.
Google Docs will also be able to seamlessly ‘share folders’ with other Google Docs users, store larger video, music and photo files. This service will possibly make Android truly fly.
