Livedrive’s new application gives Chrome OS users the ability to access all their stored files from their Chromebooks.

LONDON, UK, Aug 9, 2012 — / — Livedrive, an award winning cloud storage company, has today released a Google Chrome OS app making it easier for users to upload and download content from their Livedrive account.

Chromebooks are easy-to-use, virus-free devices which offer many advantages over Windows and Apple laptops. However Livedrive believes users have been plagued with a lack of file storage options for the device. Chromebooks contain a very small amount of internal storage and currently rely on Google Docs or other limited cloud options for data storage.

Livedrive offers its customers between 2,000GB and 5,000GB of cloud storage space from £9.95 per month. The business has already established itself as one of the top paid cloud providers and has released successful apps for Apple iOS and Android devices. The introduction of the Livedrive Chrome OS app will allow users to access all of their favourite files from their Chromebook or Chromebox.

The Chrome OS application offers several notable key features including:

Music and video streaming – which gives users the ability to play their stored files without downloading them

One-click file uploads – which makes uploading files from your Chromebook quick and easy

Direct access to all your files – which allows users to easily navigate files stored on the cloud.

Livedrive’s CEO, Andrew Michael has stated; “We have seen the issues Chromebook users have been plagued with and we wanted to help our customers make the most out of their new devices. Livedrive offers users a vast amount of storage space as well as music and video streaming services, which makes it a perfect partner for the Google devices.”

The new Livedrive app will be available to all Livedrive customers free of charge via the Chrome Web Store. Livedrive Backup accounts start at £4.95 per month, Livedrive Briefcase options start at £9.95 per month, and Livedrive’s Pro Suite option, including both Backup and Briefcase products, starts at £14.95 per month – all three can be found at
