Google Drive has long been a favorite tool for most people to keep their files handy in the cloud, as well as sharing them with others for collaboration. However, its Android app was mostly a file management tool; you literally had to open another app to edit them, until now. To make your life a bit easier, Google has included an editor shortcut to its file previews, as well as more options to sort files.
In the previous version of Google Drive, you would have to download the file from the Drive into your device and edit them using some other editing tool, and then re-upload them after finishing the edit. Also, you had to delete the older version of the file from Drive. In this new update, all you have to do just open the documents in Drive you want to edit tap the blue button in the bottom right corner, and you can directly jump into another editing app previously installed on your mobile. Files will be automatically saved after you finish editing.
This feature is a great addition, especially for photos. This saves a lot of your time from downloading the file, then editing them and re-uploading them again. So far, Google mentions this update as a common editor app, though it has added the ability to reverse sort file by popular demand. Currently, this update is only for Android version, and Google didn’t mention anything about an update for other platforms. So, if you are not an Android user, you may have to wait a bit for this update.
