Combined with the shared folders feature of Google Docs, we think this new feature is a great way to build collaborative applications for exchanging files with coworkers and external parties. No more email attachments!
In addition to arbitrary file upload, we’re launching several top features requested by developers:
- Copy a document - Make a duplicate of a document in a single call
- Publishing documents - Programmatically publish a document to the world.
- Change the owner of a document - While ACLs and sharing have been in the API for quite some time, you can now change the ‘owner’ of a document.
- Resumable uploads - Offers the ability to pause/resume an upload. It’s ideal for large file sizes.
