Google Drive Backup Will Be Integrated with Chrome OS

Google Drive, the cloud backup service released on April 24th, will be integrated with the new version of Chrome OS.

“We’ll… effectively integrate [Google] Drive into the native file system of Chrome OS. All the core OS functionality will use [Google] Drive as a place to store data — if that’s what you opt in to,” said Scott Johnson, Google Drive product manager in a Wired.com article.

For Chromebook users, this basically means when you open the ‘save file’ dialog box on the Chrome OS, the system will direct straight to Google Drive. Your Chromebook should be able to handle and manage files more quickly and easily.

With Chrome OS version 19 currently in development, expect the Google Drive integration in version 20, which could be several months away.
