Introducing Search for your Jolidrive

by Jolicloud Team

April 16th, 2013

Today we are very excited to introduce Search. Since we introduced Jolidrive it’s been one of the most requested features and it’s now available to all our users.

Your Jolidrive becomes searchable

We made it very easy to search anything you have in your Jolidrive: music, photos, documents, videos in your online storages but search can also help you find great content in all your favorite social services like Instagram, Tumblr, SoundCloud, Youtube and more…


Find and play all the music you have on your favorite online storages


Search “karaoke” on YouTube and favorite the songs that will warm up your next party

Not enough?
You can also search for instance “Paris” on Instagram and like the photos of the places you want to visit during your next trip or search “Meme” on Tumblr to stay on the edge…

Explore your personal cloud

Combined with search we have created a powerful discovery feature letting you hop from users to locations or keywords. It’s a great way to discover new music, photos and videos that you can like and share with your friends.


On Instagram for instance, you can click on users and locations

New services available

A lot of cool new services have made their appearance in the Jolidrive and most of them work with search!

Click here to activate search on your Jolidrive and discover new content.

Happy jolidriving!

Awesome updates!
I don’t suppose you could also add Pogoplug and Mega to the supported services?
And Google Music would also be quite cool.

Hi, well that looks like a useful feature. But I got a few questions,(1) Is Jolidrive now a re-brand of Jolicloud? (2) Jolicloud used to have a downloadable ISO that could be installed to a hard drive (or USB Sticks fro that matter) that could make Jolicloud the DEFAULT OS on a laptop/netbook, and that was waaaay before Chrome OS ( Yah! Boo! to you Google!!) . What ever happened to that? (3) Is it still possible to get an ISO of the latest Jolicloud?
I got to say I would rather have a fully Jolicloud Netbook/Laptop (capable of offline use as well as online) than I would a Chromebook any day!!
Yours Sincerely,
Solstice Eireann

@Nicholas Bodsworth: All services are under consideration. That said, MEGA and Google Music have no public API yet.

@Raymond Mc Donagh:

(1) Jolicloud is the company name. Jolidrive is one of our products that uses the Jolicloud platform.

(2) (3) The OS, Joli OS, is still there:
That said, take a look at our beta Desktop Environment:

I see that there is a beta for Jolicloud Desktop Enviroment for Ubuntu. If one is using Gnome 3 and not Unity will it still work as a DE for Ubuntu?

The above question might sound a bit on the silly side, but I am not all that good with Linux, and am a cautious soul at heart at the best of times

@Raymond Mc Donagh: Yes, it will work :) There’s no relation between the Jolicloud Desktop Environment and Unity.

Mega is a good plus please when the API is public,

and what about multiple accounts?
if we have 2 or more accounts with any said Cloud provider can we have each account listed?

This is something under consideration.

Came back to jolidrive and really liking. However when I use the search bar it doesn’t search any of my personal files, only app launcher and app center.

Are you using Chrome? If yes:
1. Open a new tab and go to the following URL: chrome://appcache-internals/
2. Remove the Jolicloud entries
3. Go back to your Jolidrive and refresh the page

Thank you for the praise!
