Google is experimenting a more user-friendly file search in Drive

If you use Google Drive on a regular basis, there’s a decent chance the file search function that comes with it hasn’t been very helpful at times. The act of just typing in what you believe will bring you to the document you’re looking for can instead result in overly wide results that don’t take you there at all. 

Google wants to address this issue by introducing a new set of filters below the search bar, which will allow users to quickly and easily refine any query. The filters are based on those found in Gmail. 

As you can see from the GIF above, you may narrow down your search results by file type, modification date, location, and other factors.

Search bar icon on Google Drive allows you to filter files. So it’s safe to assume most people have no idea it exists. Contrast that with the new “search chips”. There’s a sign-up form if you wish to test them out. All Workspace users will have access to the search chips once they are ready. 

The ability of smartphones to automatically back up files is improving. However, there is a chance that a person’s phone may get lost or damaged. Fortunately, there are ways to backup your files on Google Drive so that even if your phone goes bad, you don’t lose all of your photos, movies, and documents. 

The following article will teach you how to adequately safeguard your phone against any loss of files caused by Google, third-party apps, or your PC.
