Google Drive Apps Get Sharing Notifications, Access Requests And Previews

Google Drive for iOS and Android has turning into fairly necessary for me. Whether or not I’m taking notes or writing up a submit, I’ve used it to share my docs with colleagues from the street.

At this time, the staff introduced a couple of new options to assist velocity up sharing and collaboration, which when you’re not in your desktop can appear sluggish at occasions.

Yeah, Google Drive sends share requests and invitations to docs by means of e mail. Ugh.

Haven’t any worry, although. Drive for iOS and Android are getting sharing notifications. As quickly as information or folders are shared with you, you’ll get a cellular notification in your app of selection. Faucet the notification and also you’ll be despatched proper to the doc. That’s fairly large.

On Drive for Android, now you can ask for entry to information or folders with a single faucet. With notifications hitting iOS and Android in order that entry could be granted shortly. I’ve misplaced hours to the forwards and backwards of “are you able to add me to this doc?” “positive!” “are you able to please add me to this doc, don’t overlook!” “crap, sorry!”

Final function of the day, now you can preview information on Android and not using a Google account. One thing you are able to do on the desktop, however tremendous useful if you’re in a not-logged-in-state. Let’s hope all of this involves iOS too. In any other case…what the hell is the purpose?

The whole lot’s rolling out over the subsequent week or so, the staff says.
