What’s the best part of Google Drive’s agenda is that everything is always encrypted and the latest updates from the team always rejoice with all-new increments and today’s new one brings access shared files through push alerts and has been updated this to iOS and Android apps.
The new Google Drive for Android and iOS now able to send out push notification alerts whenever someone shares a new document or folder with you, and the update to the Drive app is rather very helpful if you really work a lot of shared files. The notification will then take you directly into that shared file so you can get right to work, then.
The Android version of Drive has now added some extra tricks, where you can request access to a file directly from the notification if that a sender hasn’t added you yet. Furthermore, you can and are able to view shared file even if you’re not signed into a Google account.
You being a Google Drive user, will receive mobile notifications to push alerts on time when files or folders are shared with, and it also offers one-tap authentication to access the files, though. For Android users, now the cloud storage app from Google makes it easier for other to ask permissions to view a file by simply tapping n the ‘Request Access’ button. It works on both the Android and iPhone, wil be notified when someone asks for permission.
Previously, the only method for such notifications was through your email, and obviously can often be quite cumbersome to dig through. Google Drive still does one thing than all the other productivity apps: collaboration. This new update removes a major pain point since you can jump directly into a file and get a work on your mobile device without the need to wait for the invite to show up in your inbox.
