With the forthcoming GNOME 3.18 release, yet another one of the features is proper Google Drive integration.

With GNOME 3.18 there is Google Drive integration for accessing your files from Google within GNOME applications.

The Google Drive should work with GNOME applications and the GIO APIs. This support is finally materializing in mainline after being started way back in 2009 as a Google Summer of Code project.

Few more details from this developer blog post by Debarshi Ray who was one of the developers involved in opening up Google's cloud storage service to GNOME.
