We're looking for a small set of developers that are committed to building apps for Google Drive to join our Google Drive SDK early access program. Participants will get early access to upcoming features and the opportunity to shape the direction of the SDK. This is an ongoing program covering multiple aspects of the API, and there are two new features that we're ready to share with developers.
Some of you might have already heard of the upcoming Google Drive Realtime API at Google IO 2012. The Google Drive Realtime API will allow you to use the technology that powers the realtime collaboration features of Google products such as Google Docs and Google Sheets in your own application. It will handle all aspects of data transmission, storage, and conflict resolution when multiple users are editing.
We are looking for trusted testers for what will be a short and intense pre-release phase of the Drive Realtime API. Good candidates will be:
We also told developers about an upcoming Push Notifications system at Google IO 2012. Push Notifications will allow you to get near-instant notifications when files are modified in Google Drive. In the past you would typically have had to frequently poll the Drive API to check if files have been modified to obtain similar results, Push notifications makes this super efficient.
Please fill out our signup form to tell us more about your use case and we’ll contact you shortly.
