Google Drive was announced in April this year. Unfortunately, for GNU/Linux users, there was no client for them. It was expected that Google would announce the Linux client soon, but it never happened. It’s been 4-5 months and still there is no Linux client. Well, technically there is Google Drive client for Linux — Google’s own Linux based distributions — Android and Chrome OS.
There were numerous speculations that Google might announce the Linux client during their IO 2012 summit but that also did not happen. There are a lot of ‘campaigns‘ running on Google + asking Google to release the client.
Hi everyone – Google Drive for Linux remains a priority for the team. Thanks for following up with us!
Teresa’s response gives Linux users some hope that there is still a possibility of Google Drive for Linux. However, there is still no concrete release date or time frame.
Google has been quite active in supporting GNU/Linux so I an curious what is taking it so long for them to offer a client?
