DropBox may find competition from Google in the cloud storage space sooner than anticipated, with the search giant apparently pushing to launch its own service in the first week of April.

This is according to news site GigaOm, who reports that the Google Drive service will go live next week.

Google Drive will apparently provide users with 1GB of free cloud storage, with additional options becoming free in the future.

DropBox currently offers 2GB of free storage, and encourages users to obtain more free space by recommending the service to others.

Google’s offering will reportedly feature a domain-specific version for Google Apps customers. It will also have an API for third-party apps, allowing users to store content from all applications on Google Drive.

Previous reports indicate that users can store photos, videos, documents and other files on Google Drive, which will be accessible from computers, Android tablets and Android smartphones.
