Google Drive Update Adds File Preview And More

Google has today rolled out a new update to its Google Drive service that has now added the ability to preview over 30 file types and quickly flip between them until you find the file you require.

Other new features added to the Google Drive service will now allows you to select and copy text from a preview, even from a MS Word document or PDF, together with the ability to zoom Google Drive docs for easier viewing when required.

Google explains: “You’ll see the new preview automatically if you open a photo, video, or PDF. To see a preview of a Google document, right-click on the file name and select “preview.” Once the preview window is open, you can click on the arrows on either side to flip to other files. And right from within the preview, you can watch video files or scroll through multi-page documents.”

The new Google Drive preview feature will roll out over the next few days says Google.
