Google Drive Adds New Advanced Search Features To Make Finding Files Easier

Searching for your Google Drive files got a whole lot easier today with an update that offers an easier way to open your advanced search options, quicker ways to access files on iOS, and more options to narrow your searches.

Over at the Google Drive Blog, Steen Andersson highlights some of the changes coming to one of our favourite cloud storage options. You now have the ability to narrow your search by file type from the search box on all platforms, quickly open advanced search tools right from the search box, access recent files using 3D Touch on iOS, and search your Drive with the iOS search bar without having to open up the Drive app. You can also now search for shared files based on the file owner, or search for files based on when it was last modified, the words it contains, or who the file is shared with. These new features will be rolling out over the coming weeks, so if you don’t see them right away, don’t fret. They will head your way soon.
