Google opens up file uploads through Google Docs

I really feel like I should rename my blog to something Google related. It seems like almost every blog I post is about Google.

Google has announced on its official blog that Google Docs will be opened up in the next few weeks for all kinds of file uploads and supports file size up to 250MB per file. Files uploaded can also be shared with other people just like the docs right now.

This is certainly some great news for all of us. For the past couple years, GDrive has been on my and probably on many of your wishlist. I know this is not officially the GDrive, but it certainly is just as exciting.

Over the next few weeks, we’re rolling out the ability to upload all file types to the cloud through Google Docs, giving you one place where you can upload and access your key files online. Because Google Docs now supports files up to 250 MB in size, which is larger than the attachment limit on most email applications, you’ll be able to backup large graphics files, RAW photos, ZIP archives and much more to the cloud. More importantly, instead of carrying a USB drive, you can now use Google Docs as a more convenient option for accessing your files on different computers.

This feature can also help you work with teams to organize and collaborate on information online.
