Google Drive Realtime API Allows Developer Collaboration

Google’s newly-labeled Drive has replaced documents, and is one of the main components of the opt-in Google product suite. Before today, the power to collaborate with this software, to incorporate it into new apps and document-sharing situations, has rested in the hands of Google developers exclusively. But today Google posted Drive Realtime API that lets third-party apps integrate simultaneous collaboration with Drive within their products.  So keep your eyes open for further Drive integration with third-party platforms; cloud-based document storage and sharing is here to stay.
