Speaking at an enterprise-focused Chrome Live online event, Google announced that Box integration will soon be coming to Chrome OS. In a forthcoming release of Chrome OS users will be able to sign in and have access to their Box storage in the same way as Google Drive is currently available at a system level.

After coming onto the scene as one of the first major cloud storage companies, Box has transitioned to be tailored to business users. It still offers consumer-level services, though, and is a solid competitor to Dropbox and Google Drive on storage and pricing.

We didn't receive any kind of timeline on the upcoming Box integration, but simply knowing that Google is expanding the cloud storage options in Chrome OS beyond the baked-in Google Drive option is something to get excited about.
