Last month Google announced you can now upload ANY file type to Google Docs making it easier than ever to share files and folders with friends, family, collaboration etc… Well, I have even more good news! Google has upgraded the previous 250mb file upload limit to 1GB.
Although this is great news, you will need to keep in mind that 1 Gig is also the total FREE online space given by Google Docs… (unlike the 25Gigs from Microsoft’s Skydrive…). What this means is you can essentially fill up all of your free space with just one upload! No doubt this will help give Google a boost in online storage space sales. Let’s look at the some of other less obvious updates.
Just like when you mistype something on the main search engine, Google now added it’s famous suggestions to Google Docs. I would never forget how to spell cheeseburger, but in-case someone else ever does Google is there to correct your spelling for you! Now you can search through your vast library of documents and still find what you are looking for while making typo’s like a 10-thumbed marsupial.
If you’ve become tired of looking at your Google Docs in the boring old list view, good news, Google just added thumbnail view. Now if you click the change view button at the top right of the Google Docs page you’ll see small little thumbnail previews of all of your docs to help you find them more easily. This is great for those docs that you forget to name, like the one below called “New Text Document,” I still wonder what is saved in that doc…
