Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) says it has followed updates to Google Maps, Google Camera and Google Chromecast with a Gmail update for Android owners that makes it easier to add files from Google Drive right on that Android device.
The “Insert from Drive” feature appears in Gmail in the pulldown menu on the right side, certainly an improvement over the hassle that now comes with searching through your apps and other features for the Google Drive button in the Android list. Also, according to Endgadget, the email’s recipients aren’t able to see which file the sender has selected in instances when it’s marked as private or meant only for a select group of recipients.
Google said Wednesday that users who access the new Drive file storage and synchronization service from a computer can move files into a shared folder by following these steps:
1. Click on “Incoming” in the left-hand side navigation.
2. Click on the “Add to my Drive” icon.
3. Drag the selected files into the shared folder.
