There are a lot of people like myself who have multiple Google Accounts. This leads at times to data being in different places, account switching and generally a bit of messing about. The latest version of Google Drive (rolling out now) has added a really cool gesture to change between accounts.

It’s not a particularly big time saver, but it will add up over time and it’s very simple. In the drive app main screen, touch your profile picture and simply swipe up or down. This new function becomes active as of version v2.19.332 of the Google Drive app.

It’s very simple and effective, I know it will save me a bit of time. There are a few murmurs that this function will extend to Chrome browser soon, stay tuned.

Will this added gesture help your daily workflow?
