Google Drive for Android is about to get an update, with Google announcing new features with new contextual actions for folders and files, sharing options and of course controls for managing deleted files.

The updates were announced on the Google Apps blog, with Google outlining the updates:

  • A new menu icon next to a file or folder will pop-up a set of contextual actions you can take on the file or folder.
  • You’ll now have the ability to view trash and delete or restore files from within your Android app.
  • When viewing the Shared With Me view, you’ll now see the avatars of the person who has shared with you.

The update will be rolling out to Google Drive for Android over the next three days, keep an eye out for notifications to update from Google Play.

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.
