Google Drive’s new plans bring family sharing and more options…

Engaget reporting that Google is launching a new set of plans (for Google Drive), nicknamed Google One, that gives you and your family considerably more drive space.

Google has added a new 200GB plan for $3 per month, and the 2TB plan is down to $10 per month from the earlier $20. Existing tiers are still hanging around and range from 100GB for $2 per month to a hefty 30TB for $300 per month.

How can I download a video posted on Facebook?

This is a question I recently searched for using Google. What I found is that there is no easy way on Facebook to download a video that has been posted by another party; however, I did find savefrom.net that will download a Facebook video providing you have the URL for the video.

To get the URL, simply right mouse click on the video, click on “show video URL”, then click on the “URL” (to highlight it), then hit “Ctrll+C” to copy the URL to the clipboard (or you can right mouse click and select “copy” which will copy the URL to the clipboard). After you have copied the URL to the clipboard, go to savefrom.net and enter the URL in the input field at the top of the main page. This action should present a download button where you can initiate the download (which will either be in MP4-HD or MP4-SD file formats).

With safefrom.net you can also download audio, video, and other types of files from various websites and social networks such as youtube.com, vk.com, vimeo.com, and others.

You Can Now Use Natural Language Processing When Searching For Files In Google Drive

What in the world is Natural Language Processing? 

Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a fancy way of saying “search like you talk.” You can type things like “find my budget spreadsheet from last December” or “show me presentations from Anissa.” Drive will understand what you mean and give you the option to click for those specific search results. Drive NLP will get better with each query — so keep on searching. 😉 — Source: Google Drive Blog

ALSO, if you cannot spell very well…

When you’re trying to find a doc fast, it’s easy for typos to slip into your search. Drive now has a new autocorrect feature that suggests corrections to misspelled search terms — which can really help when your brain is moving faster than your fingers. — Source: Google Drive Blog

Evernote and Google Drive Become A Natural Pairing

You can read more about this on the Evernote blog, but in a nutshell here is how this pairing will work between Evernote and Google Drive:

All the files you keep in Drive are now easier to access in Evernote. Now, instead of seeing only URL links, anyone can browse anything created or stored in Google Drive right in Evernote notebooks. With this integration, Evernote customers can add any file in Drive to their notes without leaving Evernote. And any changes to files in Google Drive will dynamically update in Evernote.

This feature is currently in “beta” and is currently only available on the web (through Google Chrome) and for Android.
