With the launch of free services from Insync, there are changes in the signup procedure as well. Now, you will be able to access by entering your Gmail ID.
Existing users also will go through this transition. After installation of Insync in your computer, you will be asked to enter your Gmail credentials. By doing so, you will have access to all of your Google documents through Insync.
The new service fill give greater flexibility for those who are dependent on Google docs and Dropbox for business communications. You can completely swipe off the data to any level of sharing when the relevance of those documents come to an end.
Updates From Social Networking Sites
Another important new feature is that you will get updates automatically similar to updates you get from social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook whenever there is an activity on your wall. Whenever change is made by any one of your collaborators, you will get an alert immediately.
You can be more responsive and take action immediately if the document needs urgent attention. The new filtering option will help you search for a specific item which is based on tags. If you are accessing a file that is shared by someone, the file space will not be accounted in your storage space.
Similar kind of applications and services may be launched by more and more companies in future and especially Google may come up with a much ambitious plan. There is a great demand for shared documents across different communities like students, business, research and organisations.
