Google’s cloud storage service that looks to compete directly with Dropbox may launch during the first week of April, according to a report from GigaOm. Google Drive will apparently allocate 1GB of storage to users for free, and additional options will be available for a fee. Dropbox, the market leader in cloud storage, currently offers 2GB of free storage. It also provides several ways for users to obtain more free space, such as recommending friends to the service. Google’s Dropbox competitor will reportedly feature a domain-specific version for Google Apps customers and it will have an API for third-party apps, allowing users to store content from other apps within Google Drive. Earlier reports indicated that the service will allow users to store photos, videos, documents and other files in the cloud, and will be accessible from computers as well as Android tablets and smartphones.
