An extensive search engine for Google Drive

If your Google Drive web drive is so full that it’s hard to find the files you need on it, then you’ll be happy to know that Google has added a new, enhanced search engine to its service. Thanks to it, finding the needed materials will become much simpler.

This week, Mountain View has released the latest update to the Google Drive application that gives users access to a network drive. The update introduces a couple of fixes and above all focuses on streamlining the content search process. In total, four completely new search elements have come up.

IOS users no longer need to open the Google Drive application to search for a particular file on disk. Soon they will be able to use 3D Touch technology to access their files directly from the home screen. In addition, they have access to advanced search mode, and the next change is the ability to search by file type.

You can search by email address of the owner of the file or keywords. You can also search for them after the modification date, as well as people who have access to it.

The distribution of updates has only just begun, so some users will have to wait a bit.
