Google Drive sends alerts of shared files on your phone



Google has updated its Drive app for Android and iOS platform by adding some new features, which is pretty useful for users that love to work in team. The new update is specifically useful for students and employees, who work in team. This new feature of Google Drive will give you instant alerts on your phone whenever any of your friends shares a file and folder with you. So from now on, you don’t have to always check your email to see what your friends have shared with you.

If you want to know what your friends have shared, just click on the notification, which will directly take you to the Google Docs, Sheets or Slides file. You can also ask the file owner for the permission to access the files through your Android mobile and the file owner will grant you access in similar fashion with his Android and iOS mobile device. This means that you don’t have to text or call your friend to request for accessing the shared files.

If you have a friend, who doesn’t want to sign up for Google account despite of using an Android phone, you don’t have to worry folks, as he can also see the shared files. There is a feature that let you preview shared files on Android without a Google Account. Every feature of the Google Drive will roll out over the next week.
