The rumored cloud storage service coming from Google is out in the wild, and you can find now on your Android devices or web browsers.

It’s called Google Drive, so if you’re already using Google’s document-making mobile app, a quick update will bring you up to speed with the new app.

Because of the link between Google Docs and Google Drive, everything you’ve saved in Google Docs is immediately available in your Google Drive – but it won’t take up your space, because Google uses web links to those items rather than save text into the actual files.

Google is slinging gigabytes in all directions with the release of Drive. In addition to adding 5GB of storage basically to Google Docs, users of Google’s Gmail web-based email service are also getting more space – 10GB of storage, up from the traditional free 7GB offered to users.

If you plan to give Google Drive a spin, let us know what you think of it in the comments below.
