As we all await the Google Drive announcement from Google, its competitors are getting ready to stand their ground and keep their customers. They are planning to do this by adding some new notable features. Dropbox and Microsoft' SkyDrive are the two competitors we are seeing update their services.
Dropbox has been great for storage and syncing, but they haven't been very share-friendly. Dropbox has now introduced link sharing which will allow you to share files via a link and open pictures up in your browser. "This means that people who follow your link can see pictures, look at presentations, and watch home videos without having to download and open them separately," Dropbox explains.
Microsoft's SkyDrive has also received some polishing and updates in anticipation of Google Drive. A whole bunch of new apps will be getting better desktop syncing and improved remote access. Interestingly enough, with these updates, SkyDrive users are getting less free storage: 25GB has been reduced to just 7GB.
