Google Drive gets even more social

Google Drive gets even more social

It is a fact that Google Drive still needs a lot of work in terms of functionality and design. We've already seen a slew of nifty updates, such as Google Keep and the capabiliy to preview files. The newest update, however, is by far the best. Google's Eric Zhang said today that Google Drive now features profile pictures and one-click group chat. We often use Google Drive to collaborate with our team. Now we can finally view profile pictures of viewers, contrary to just names, which is pretty boring quite honestly.

Google brings the update a bit further by allowing users to add viewers to their circles on Google+ simply by hovering over their photos. The update gets even better with the addition of one-click chats. This means that users can now start a group chat in a click. To do that, Google recommends clicking the new chat button to access the chat box. Fret not if you're still not seeing the improvements. Google says that the new features will roll out in a day or two. So, just sit back and relax.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
