Google Drive

Google Drive is an excellent cloud storage and file synchonization service, and comes with a generous 15GB of free space. While Google Drive also has a paid 1TB tier for the same $9.99 per month as Dropbox's 1TB tier, there's also a 100GB tier for $1.99 a month, if you need just a bit more space.

Google Hangouts

Hangouts is a full-featured messaging service from Google. It features instant messaging, telephone (VOIP), audio and video chats, either one-to-one or with a group, screen sharing and file transfer. It is straightforward and easy to use, and all you and the person(s) you're going to "hangout" (sonnect) with have to have it is a free Google+ account. Calling other countries will cost you a little bit (but much less than Skype, like 2ยข a minute to UK landlines) and calling any phone in the US, landline or mobile, is free!
