Google updates Drive to make file searches easier and faster

On Wednesday, tech biggie Google announced its latest update to Google Drive cloud storage service, to make it “super easy” and much faster for users of the service to find their files. The update will be rolled out to the Android and iOS platforms, and the Web, in the coming weeks.

Announcing the update to the Google Drive service, Google said that it is introducing four new ways in which users can find files stored on Drive.

These four new ways are --- firstly, users will be able to search for files via file type; secondly, by opening the advanced search options dialog directly from the search box; thirdly, straight from the home screen on iOS devices supporting the 3D Touch feature; and; fourthly, via the iOS search bar.

Google has also revealed that Drive users who search files using 3D Touch of iOS search bar -- the two new ways which are specifically targeted at iOS users -- can perform the searches even without opening the Drive app.

In reference to the new update which will make it convenient for users to find their Drive files, Google said: “When you store important files in Google Drive they’re not only safe, they’re accessible from any device. And finding them again from any device should be super easy so we’re rolling out a new search experience to get you better results — even faster.”
