Google Drive version 2.2 update brings drag and drop functionality and more
Google is pushing out yet another update to an app, and this time it’s Google Drive’s turn. The update to version 2.2 brings some basic drag and drop functionality to the app, along with a slight change to the navigation menu.
Up until now, moving files around in Google Drive was sort of a hassle. In previous versions, you’d need to select a drop down menu and choose the location to where you wanted to move your file. But in the update to version 2.2, you can now drag and drop files wherever you’d like. After you receive the update, Google will show a brief tutorial card towards the top of the app, explaining how to do so. To move files, simply hold down on an item, then drag it to your desired location. Before you move the file, Drive will let you know how many files you have selected towards the bottom of the screen, which will prevent you from moving more files than you’d like.
Next, the new update brings a full-height navigation drawer. In the version prior to this one, the navigation drawer would slide out under the action bar up top. Now the drawer reaches the top of the screen, much like we’ve seen in a few other Google apps.
Those are the only changes we’re seeing so far, so if you find any others, feel free to comment below. The update is rolling out in the Google Play Store right now, but if you don’t want to wait for it, you can sideload the apk file by following this link.
