Google introduces new Drive chat for non-native Google Drive files

Drive Chat
Another day, another step toward the unified messaging system known currently as ‘Babel‘. This time the new step appears to be in the form of a new messaging system built into Google Drive.

Google+ user Name redacted at their request has noticed the new chat when looking at a file he uploaded to Google Drive. He posted about it on the Google Docs and Drive (Discussion) community.

The chat only appears to be available when viewing files uploaded to Google Drive not files created using the Native Google Drive client. Redacted describes the chat as ‘VERY much like Google+ chat’. You can actually test this out yourself, simply upload a file you’ve created to Google Drive and then have someone else view the file at the same time.

Give it a try yourself and see what you think.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

That looks pretty bad, have they not heard of padding?
