Google Drive for Linux screenshots leak online

Three years after its launch on the Windows platform, it looks like the official Google Drive client is close to release for Linux, as shown by recently leaked screenshots.

Google unleashed Google Drive back in 2012 and now this notorious file storage and synchronization service has over 240 million monthly active users. The software client works on the following platforms: Windows, Mac OS X, Android, as well as iOS. Linux users were only able to access Google Drive using various unofficial tools so far, but a recent leak shows that the official client for this platform could be very close to launching.

As two screenshots obtained by Web Upd 8 show, there is an official Google Drive client that runs on Ubuntu. Even more, it looks like this software package has been around for a few months already. The screenshots mentioned above were spotted for the first time in the Google Drive client package for Mac, version 1.18.7821.2489. This version arrived last year, on October 30.

While the above shows that Google is probably testing Google Drive for Linux internally, the product may launch pretty soon or not, as nothing is official yet. Until Google comes with a statement, we will keep our eyes on rumors and leaks as usual.
