There have been quite a few unofficial sightings for the upcoming Google Drive which is the search engines new cloud storage service. We’ve seen screen shots of the drive, its integration with other third party websites as well as desktop apps that will be available for download.
It’s not like we need any more proof that Google is about to launch a new service, yet we have one more leak for the Google Drive. This one comes by way of the Google Android Developers Hangout where a Google employee was showing some sharing features of an app and one of the destination locations for the share just so happened to be Google Drive which easily identified by its triangular icon.
Once the new leak was identified in the video and posted on the Internet, it didn’t take Google long to bring the video down, replacing it with new footage that removed the reference to Google Drive. Although there have been a few launch dates circulating, the most popular bet is that Google’s new service will launch next week and very likely on Tuesday. When the service does become available, users will gain access to 5GB of free space with an option to buy additional space as needed. At the launch of the service, there will be apps for Android, desktop OS and Apple’s iOS 5.
