Google Drive For iOS And Android: What’s New?


If you use Google Drive as a convenient cloud backup for your important documents or as a collaborative tool to share files you’re still working on with your peers, you’ll want to check out the latest versions of the app for both iOS and Android, with both getting some new features.

The most significant changes are those for iOS, as the app has now gained the ability to edit, as well as view documents. That feature was long overdue, and should make Drive a whole lot more useful to the iOS crowd. Other changes coming to the iOS version of the app include new file management tools, including the ability to create folders withing Drive and group your files accordingly, as well as being able to view Google presentations.

Android’s not without its own share of improvements, like those same file management and presentation additions. Drive for Android also gains the ability to leave and reply to comments, as well as viewing tables.

In the future, Google plans to expand the app’s editing abilities to support collaborative work on spreadsheets.
