The mythical, much-anticipated Google Drive is finally here and ready for you to take it for a spin. Google announced the new service earlier today on its blog, and it offers many improvements over the former, stand-alone Google Docs service.
In addition to now offering 5GB of free storage for any and all files, Google Drive now allows users to share, collaborate, and add comments on everything - PDFs, images, videos, etc. – not just Google Docs files. Additionally, with Google's Optical Character Recognition, you'll be able to search PDFs and images with text, and with Google's image recognition technology, you'll even be able to find photographs based on key descriptors (in other words, a search for "Grand Canyon" will actually bring up pictures you uploaded of the Grand Canyon).
You can download the Google Drive app for Android on your HTC EVO right now from the Play Store, but don't worry if your own Google account has not been set up with Google Drive yet: Google is apparently gradually rolling out these new features for users over the next few hours or days.
