Google has today rolled out a new update to their Google Drive cloud storage service which brings with it a new feature which makes it even easier to find the files you are looking for.
As with other cloud storage services such as Dropbox, Box and other Google Drive has been designed to be accessible from any device allowing you to access your stored files with ease.
The new update has been added by Google to make finding the exact document you require even easier and faster, allowing you to search across all your files regardless of the device that came from. Google explains a little more about the new features you can expect to enjoy in the latest Google Drive update.
– Narrow your search to a file type from the search box on Android, iOS, and the web.
– Open advanced search instantly from the search box.
– Access recent files or search Drive from the home screen using 3D Touch on iOS.
– Search Drive using the iOS search bar without opening the Drive app.
Several behind-the-scenes improvements give your search queries even better results than they did before. And to get more specific results, anyone can now do the following:
– Search for shared files by file owner using their name or email address.
– Use advanced search options like the date a file was modified, words it contains, or who it was shared with.
