The integration of all the services you use from your favorite search provider just keeps on getting better. Today, Google announced that you can now share content from your Google Drive directly to Google+. It's not just a matter of a simple link, either (unless you're on mobile). A built-in viewer for PDFs, videos, slideshow presentations and more make the experience virtually seamless.

To share to Google+, you simply click the Share button like normal where you'll find the new option waiting, in addition to the usual Gmail, Facebook, and Twitter. Of course, none of the other methods have quite this level of integration and ease of use. As stated before, mobile G+ users will only see a link that will then open in Drive.

You shouldn't need to do a thing to make use of the new update. Just go share something from Google Drive now.

    I wish Google would do a storage price match with dropbox, i'd dump it in a second if I could get the same amount of space lol

      ...what?! Google Drive's pricing is half of Dropbox's, what are you talking about?

      https://www.google.com/settings/storage/ - 100gb $4.99/mo
      https://www.dropbox.com/upgrade - 100gb $9.99/mo

        for the same monthly price, you get 200gb from google

          25GB of Google space is only $2.50/month, but 16GB is $800???

        lol I'm saying I have 25 gb of free storage from Dropbox after all that referral spamming and I'd rather not do it again for Google Drive :P

      More likely they might set up deals - install GDrive on a Nexus device & get an extra 5GBs... Or the various Dropquest scavenger hunts where you earn extra GBs by solving riddles, etc... Only they would be able to keep tabs on who cheats & googles the answers :) Or the current Space Race -- BTW if you've got an EDU address, verify it with DB (even if you've already done so for a previous special), You'll get 3GBs free for 2 years & if I enough of your classmates sign up as well, it'll become 8GBs, ... up to 25!

    Am I the only one who clicked the play icon in the screen shot repeatedly waiting for a video to start playing?
