Another day, another step toward the unified messaging system known currently as ‘Babel‘. This time the new step appears to be in the form of a new messaging system built into Google Drive.
The chat only appears to be available when viewing files uploaded to Google Drive not files created using the Native Google Drive client.
Redacted describes the chat as ‘VERY much like Google+ chat’. You can actually test this out yourself, simply upload a file you’ve created to Google Drive and then have someone else view the file at the same time.
Give it a try yourself and see what you think.
