26 Jun Google I/O 2014: The highlights
This year’s Google I/O developer conference held in San Francisco revealed plenty of exciting announcements for Google. Android are pushing forward in not only the wearables market but in your car and home too, with Android Auto, Android TV, Android Watch and more. The keynote speech, led by Sundar Pichai, Senior VP of Android, Chrome and Apps, also announced lots of exciting updates for Google Enterprise too.
Firstly, Google have launched Drive for Work, a file sync and share solution with unlimited storage. This will rival the likes of Dropbox and Box by offering a business level solution that provides IT administrators with the tools they require to control users and data. For only £6.60 per user per month, it is the best value solution on the market of it’s kind, and the only truly unlimited storage solution.
Secondly, Google are now supporting native editing of Microsoft office documents from inside Google Apps. This almost completely eradicates the need to continue tired contracts with Microsoft, as existing files can be amended and updated in their original format.
