Google updated their desktop client this week, bringing the ability to select sub-folders to sync within Drive, but their Android app also got an update as well bringing inline uploads.
Not sure what inline uploads are? Google describes the new feature as:
Inline Uploads: Previously when uploading files to Google Drive, they would be sent to a folder called Uploads, instead of a destination folder. Now, when uploading files, you’ll see them appear within the destination folder to which you uploaded the file, along with a clear upload progress indicator.
Google is rolling the update out to Android users over a few days, but as they announced this on Thursday, you should be prompted to update your app through Google Play now.
