The cloud storage war is heating up and Google is doing all it can to remain on top of that race. Google has enabled Google Drive for desktop with the ability to share files right from your PC and Macs.
You can now simply right click on a file and choose “share” from the Google Drive submenu to send it across to your friends and colleagues. The files will need to be in your Google Drive folder for it to work, though.
This seems like a good move, especially since Google Drive has been facing immense competition from other cloud storage service providers like Dropbox and SkyDrive. Regular updates and addition of features that make sharing easy is always a welcome move as it lends Google Drive brownie points with the regular users as well as helps accrue new ones.
Now share using Google Drive right from your PC or Macs
Google understands the need for constant updates to the service well enough. We’ve seen a kind of a pattern emerging with Google’s updates to Drive – especially to its apps on Android and iOS.
If you look closely, you’ll see that Google now pushes out updates to its iOS and Android apps every month. If it’s Android one month, you can be assured the iOS app is getting some new features next.
This new sharing feature to the desktop version of Google Drive is set to be rolling out over the next few days. So, if you don’t see the option to share using Google Drive come up when you right click, don’t fret yet.
