Google Drive now allows third-party apps to edit docs in realtime

Recommended Posts

Google has released a new Drive API that will enable developers to make use of Drive's realtime editing functions. By tapping into the API, developers will be able to make apps that can edit Google Drive text, spreadsheet, and presentation documents, with web users seeing the changes in realtime.

One of Drive's most popular features is the ability to collaborate on documents. Users can work on different parts of a document, with changes and comments appearing for other users almost instantly. Until now, apps with Google Drive integration had relied on clunky methods like downloading full documents and uploading them later. Today's API release should put an end to that ? let's hope developers take notice and start integrating Google Drive into their apps soon.

I love that about Google Drive. We definitely need more apps taking advantage of it.
