Chromebooks pick up offline Google Drive folder support in Beta Channel and later

Wednesday, February 20th, 2019

In what will surely be a boon to Chromebook-related productivity, you can now make individual folders and files in your Google Drive available offline on Chrome OS, but only on V73 and later. That's Beta Channel and forward, at the time of writing.

The feature isn't present on the current V72 release (72.0.3629.97), but it is present in our testing on V73 (73.0.3683.32). Based on the timeline that some related commits were added to the Chromium Gerrit, it may have been present in V73 since it was Dev/Canary. It also works pretty much as you'd expect, though there are a few "gotchas."

The new "available offline" setting appears only via the right-click menu in the file view section of the Chrome OS file manager.

Most of Google's products support a wide range of languages, and now Drive has two more language options. The company's G Suite blog announced today that Docs, Sheets, Slides, Sites, Forms, and Drive on web now support Burmese and Welsh.

The two languages, which have around 33 million and 724 thousand native speakers respectively, are available today in the Drive interface. They should appear in Docs products on February 19th. If your Google account is set to either language, Drive should automatically switch to it.

G Suite updates: Embeddable Google Drawings in Docs and more colorful graphs in Sheets

Monday, January 7th, 2019

In an announcement that would have seemed at home in the year 1990, Google has announced that you can make a design element in your Sheets chart a unique color. For instance, in a bar graph where all the bars are blue, you can make one red (see above). Before you rush to your personal computing machine to try out that innovative new feature, though, note that there's another G Suite update coming as well.

Google will prioritize fixing Drive’s spam issues

Friday, January 4th, 2019

Google Drive is a powerful cloud service for storing files and creating documents. It even has a robust sharing system in place to help you collaborate with friends and colleagues. However, that sharing functionality is a bit too... permissive. It's easy to spam people with shared files and folders, and there's no way you can completely remove them from your account. Now, Google says it's aware of the issue and will implement a fix.

Tip: Google Drive tells you if backed up photos and videos are using your storage quota

Friday, December 7th, 2018

Google Photos makes it easy to back up every photo and video you capture on your phone, but some of those files might eat into your Google storage allowance. You can let Google compress files or get a Pixel if you want unlimited storage, but it can be hard to keep track of all those files. If you want to know which files are taking up your space, Google Drive has the answer (both the app and website).

[Update: Live in Pie with ADB] A future version of Android will have a manual device backup option

Monday, October 8th, 2018

Google has offered some rudimentary backup functionality in Android since the 2.0 days, but it improved backup functionality in 6.0 Marshmallow. However, you still have to trust that the Google Drive backups are happening as there are no user-facing controls. That's going to change in a future version of Android, though.

This news comes from Google itself in an issue tracker thread, and for once it wasn't the product of an internet mob adding hundreds of stars.

Google Drive for Android is about to get a Material Design refresh

Friday, October 5th, 2018

Google is continuing to slowly update all of its apps to a refreshed Material Design style (MD 2.0, to some) and the latest product to get this treatment is Google Drive on Android — the web version has already been updated. It's not actually live yet, but the code is there ready to go, so we can expect it to roll out to users soon.

The screenshots come courtesy of XDA Developers in collaboration with Kieron Quinn, and there aren't too many surprises in view of Google's other recent redesigns.
