Pando, the startup that has created a drag-n-drop file-sharing application, says it’s hit the one millionth install mark, in just the three months since it launched into public beta. Pando has released a plug-in for Outlook and Yahoo Messenger, and founder Yaron Samid says several other major IM and email players have approached the company to create a plug-in or power file-sharing services.

Earlier today Google said its file-transfer feature for Google Talk is now publicly available. We’ll have to put the two to the test and see if there are major performance differences.

  1. Go Pando! This is a sweet little app. I’ve been testing the beta for a while and they deserve the attention they’re getting. They’re doing for file transfer what Skype did for voice chat — evolve it from a third tier feature in IM, into a high value application that “just works”. Seems to be paying off. 1 million downloads in 3 months is Skype-like growth! Are the IM giants paying attention this time around?
