Google Drive makes its way to Chrome OS

Updated developer’s build of Chrome OS now includes Google Drive integration

It’s only been a couple days since Google officially introduced their Drive storage service, and it’s already making its way to Chrome OS.

Users running the Chrome OS dev channel can now update their devices to version 20.0.1116.0, which has Google Drive integrated directly in the file manager. The update is currently available for the Acer AC700, Samsung Series 5 and the original Cr-48 Chromebook (which didn't receive Aura UI until the first 20.0 update).

Unfortunately, the update remains a developer’s build, and according to TechCrunch it isn't void of issues. After spending time with the update, the website discovered that files cannot be accessed offline and their was an absence of Google Drive’s advanced search features. However, that is to be expected with an initial build, and the service should be refined with future updates.
