Google has just unleashed an update to their Drive app that has rocked the world and changed everything. Okay, so it hasn’t really done that, but it’s still pretty nice. Previously when you uploaded anything from your smartphone or tablet to Google Drive, it would be consigned to an “uploads” folder until you deliberately moved it. Now, thanks to inline uploading, you can upload files directly to whatever folder you choose.

That’s essentially all there is to this update. Google is stating that the rollout should last a little over three days, so you should see it hitting your device soon. If you’re not already using Google Drive, then I don’t really know how to engage you as a human being because you must be some kind of time traveler from the Early Modern Period. However, if that’s the case, you can get started with getting all your most important files cloud-secured and accessible by clicking the button below to get the app from the Play Store.

In the meantime, tell us what you think of this update. It’s kind of a specific alteration that probably affects a significant subgroup of the userbase, but this could really improve some people’s workflows. Give us your take on inline uploading in the comments, and be sure to stay tuned to Android Authority for all the latest updates on the apps you use on an everyday basis!
