Functionality of Google drive based cloud system has improved, thanks to new chrome extension that Google has added to its Drive. Google Drive is considered to be a convenient option for storing data which can be accessed at any given time.
With the help of this cloud system, the users can share and edit documents and collaborate with others. All this happens in real time though. However, Google Drive does have its limitations as it does not have a robust editing tool in place.
Until now, the users had to download the data on their desktop from Google Drive in order to open the same. Google Drive has overcome this limitation by adding a new extension which has made things easy for the users.
The extension has been made available for both the Mac and PC versions. Users will now find it easy to open the documents and edit the same without having to download the same on their desktop.
Users will only need to right click on the file and select the option “Open With”. The file can then directly be opened without the same to have been saved on the desktop. This functionality will make it possible to use Google Drive on any kind of PC or smartphone as not all allow the document to be downloaded.
However, the users need to have latest version of Google Drive to avail the benefits of this added functionality. The same can be downloaded for free, thus making the PC experience, much better.
