Google rolls out new social features for Google Drive
 
 

Just a month after updating Google Drive with new and nifty social features, Google is doing it again, this time, allowing users to share files directly from their Google Drive folder on their PC or Mac.

Last month, Google announced a set of new social features for Google Drive which makes it easier for users to work collectively via Google Docs. It gets even better. Today's update allow users to share files, right straight from your Google Drive folder on your PC or Mac, to the cloud, thanks to a new option in the submenu. Simply select a file, right click on it to open the submenu, and click “share." The update will be available globally over the next few days, Google said. 

Earlier updated features of Drive include a one-click group chat and options for new profile photos. Group chats can now be started with a single click on a chat button located at the top right portion of Drive. Users can also upload and change their profile photos. If users don’t have one, they can choose from several animal drawings.

Today's update also makes it possible to instantly recognize people whom you share documents with by displaying profile pictures and not just names. Google Drive will display more details about each viewer of the document when users hover their cursor over a profile photo.


The new social features also make it easier for Google Drive users to be added to the social networking site Google+. Users do not need to leave or sign out, but they can sign in to Google+ from within Drive itself. Users can also add other people who are viewing the document to Google+ while still in Google Drive.
