Google rolls out new social features for Google Drive

Google rolls out new social features for Google Drive

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.

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.
