Google is adding another channel for saving content nearly instantly to its cloud storage service, Drive.
Reminiscent of similar add-ons from Pocket and Evernote, the "Save to Drive" button promises one-click action for saving files from the Web.
Web developers have two options for adding the Save to Drive button to their websites.
Essentially, the API method should give more control over to the developers.
Garnier explained further:
The Save to Drive button works in the context of the user’s browser. This allows your users to save files that could require some form of HTTP authorization – such as a session cookie – without any special customization from you. In most cases, the Save to Drive button should be simple to integrate, plug-and-play!
The Save to Drive button is already being implemented by some companies. Garnier highlighted Bigstock, Delta Dental, Fotolia, O'Reilly, Outbox, Ultimate Software, and Zen Payroll as a few major examples.
