But for an idea to really take shape, it often needs context like research, drawings, documents, and photos.

But as you put more and more files there, keeping things organized can be a bit of a challenge. So, here are some recent improvements that will help you more easily put things where they belong:&lt;br /&gt;&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt;When you&#39;re browsing files, the toolbar now shows a “Move” icon for files already in Drive and “Add to My Drive” for everything else.&lt;a href=&quot;http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-R-3KnRne69o/VpfegfqrU_I/AAAAAAAABxE/K6QiyisX_q4/s1600/drive_addmove.gif&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;clear: left; display: inline !important; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; height=&quot;240&quot; src=&quot;http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-R-3KnRne69o/VpfegfqrU_I/AAAAAAAABxE/K6QiyisX_q4/s640/drive_addmove.gif&quot; width=&quot;640&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt;When previewing files, a new icon lets you add the file to any folder in “My Drive” quickly and easily.&lt;a href=&quot;http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-kpRMv6WlA94/VpffmexvB3I/AAAAAAAABxU/MvOoBWN3gj0/s1600/preview_addtodrive1.gif&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;clear: left; display: inline !important; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; height=&quot;292&quot; src=&quot;http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-kpRMv6WlA94/VpffmexvB3I/AAAAAAAABxU/MvOoBWN3gj0/s640/preview_addtodrive1.gif&quot; width=&quot;640&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt;From search results, you can now drag and drop files into folders.&lt;a href=&quot;http://4.bp.blogspot.com/--GnQdZcmKbs/VpfioYHBsTI/AAAAAAAABxc/-taztLbgNcc/s1600/drive_dragfromsearch3.gif&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;clear: left; display: inline !important; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; height=&quot;240&quot; src=&quot;http://4.bp.blogspot.com/--GnQdZcmKbs/VpfioYHBsTI/AAAAAAAABxc/-taztLbgNcc/s640/drive_dragfromsearch3.gif&quot; width=&quot;640&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;br /&gt;As always, thanks for trusting Google Drive with your important files (and the not-so-important ones, too).

That&#39;s why Drive uses Google’s highly-secure, custom-built &lt;a href=&quot;https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZmGGAbHqa0&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;data centers&lt;/a&gt; to store your photos, videos, and other documents. But it’s not just fences, cameras, and lasers that keep things safe — it’s people. It&#39;s the software engineers and 500+ security experts at Google, along with a network of independent researchers, who live and breathe data security.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Our &lt;a href=&quot;https://www.google.com/about/appsecurity/research-grants/&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;research grant program&lt;/a&gt; is one way independent security researchers contribute to Google’s data security. We&#39;re grateful for their efforts to keep Google Drive safe, so next year we’re dedicating $1,000,000 to fund even more grants for independent security research. Separately, we’ll continue to &lt;a href=&quot;https://www.google.com/about/appsecurity/reward-program/&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;offer up to $20,000&lt;/a&gt; to anyone who finds and reports a qualifying issue. The end result of these ongoing efforts is a product that — unlike your garden-variety hard drive — actually gets better over time.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;This holiday season, many of you will be buying or gifting new computers, phones, and tablets — and possibly dealing with moving important files from old devices to new ones. Google Drive for &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.google.com/drive/download&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Mac&lt;/a&gt;, &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.google.com/drive/download&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;PC&lt;/a&gt;, &lt;a href=&quot;https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.docs&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Android&lt;/a&gt;, and &lt;a href=&quot;https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/google-drive-free-online-storage/id507874739&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;iOS&lt;/a&gt; devices can help you easily move your files and keep them all safe going forward.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;So, enjoy some R&amp;amp;R this holiday season.

And to get more specific results, anyone can now do the following:&lt;br /&gt;&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt;Search for shared files by file owner using their name or email address.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Use advanced search options like the date a file was modified, words it contains, or who it was shared with.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;line-height: 22.08px;&quot;&gt;This is all part of an ongoing effort to make Drive the easiest place to find your files. Look for these features as they roll out in the coming weeks.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;line-height: 22.08px;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;line-height: 22.08px;&quot;&gt;Posted by Steen Andersson, Group Product Manager, Google Drive&lt;/span&gt;</content><link rel='edit' type='application/atom+xml' href='http://www.blogger.com/feeds/5320550312748173929/posts/default/3890345978969953930'/><link rel='self' type='application/atom+xml' href='http://www.blogger.com/feeds/5320550312748173929/posts/default/3890345978969953930'/><link rel='alternate' type='text/html' href='http://drive.googleblog.com/2015/12/because-its-gotta-be-super-easy-to-find.html' title='Because it&#39;s gotta be super easy to find your files'/><author><name>Unknown</name><email>[email protected]</email><gd:image rel='http://schemas.google.com/g/2005#thumbnail' width='16' height='16' src='https://img1.blogblog.com/img/b16-rounded.gif'/></author><media:thumbnail xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/" url="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-uZSpi0ZwkSE/VmkZafFzDLI/AAAAAAAABws/JZMCDoPEH-g/s72-c/drive_search_update.gif" height="72" width="72"/></entry><entry><id>tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5320550312748173929.post-8183905750697214198</id><published>2015-11-04T10:53:00.000-08:00</published><updated>2015-12-09T22:43:51.696-08:00</updated><title type='text'>Because it&#39;s gotta be super easy to share files </title><content type='html'>When you store your important files somewhere, you want to have peace of mind that they&#39;ll be safe and easy-to-access later. That&#39;s why everything in Drive is always encrypted. And why we encourage all of our users to complete a simple &lt;a href=&quot;https://security.google.com/settings/security/secureaccount&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Security Checkup&lt;/a&gt; every now and then. Of course, this should include file sharing as well — it should be super easy to control who sees what. &lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;With this in mind, we&#39;re making a number of improvements to Drive today, so you can store your photos and documents safely and get them where they need to go.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Get sharing notifications&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;You may have noticed recently that it’s easier to select and share multiple files and folders on &lt;a href=&quot;https://plus.google.com/+GoogleDrive/posts/1JsrDsKmNqW&quot; style=&quot;text-decoration: none;&quot;&gt;iOS&lt;/a&gt; and &lt;a href=&quot;https://plus.google.com/+GoogleDrive/posts/ZK4t9XLTUxm&quot; style=&quot;text-decoration: none;&quot;&gt;Android&lt;/a&gt; — but checking your email may not be the fastest way to find out when something’s been shared with you. So starting today, you’ll receive mobile notifications to alert you immediately when files or folders are shared with you and a single tap can take you right to them.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-JvEIYYOAspA/VjpMwZvh8JI/AAAAAAAABv0/VkiskZm4oyE/s1600/group_sharing.png&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;color: black;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; height=&quot;305&quot; src=&quot;http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-JvEIYYOAspA/VjpMwZvh8JI/AAAAAAAABv0/VkiskZm4oyE/s640/group_sharing.png&quot; width=&quot;640&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;b&gt;Request and grant file access&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Drive lets you quickly &lt;a href=&quot;https://plus.google.com/+GoogleDrive/posts/UES9BhpsFWp&quot; style=&quot;text-decoration: none;&quot;&gt;grab a link&lt;/a&gt; to files and folders so you can share them using other apps, but if you share a link before you’ve granted access, the person you’re sending it to won’t be able to open it. Now, the Drive for Android app lets recipients request access with a single tap. And on Android and iOS, file owners will be notified of the request instantly so they can quickly grant access.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Preview files without a Google Account on Android&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Until now, you needed a Google Account to view shared files on your Android device. Now, you can do this without a Google Account just like on the web. &lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Some of the features mentioned are already available. Look for the rest to roll out in the coming week or so. &lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Posted by Alex Vogenthaler, Group Product Manager, Google Drive </content><link rel='edit' type='application/atom+xml' href='http://www.blogger.com/feeds/5320550312748173929/posts/default/8183905750697214198'/><link rel='self' type='application/atom+xml' href='http://www.blogger.com/feeds/5320550312748173929/posts/default/8183905750697214198'/><link rel='alternate' type='text/html' href='http://drive.googleblog.com/2015/11/because-its-gotta-be-super-easy-to.html' title='Because it&#39;s gotta be super easy to share files '/><author><name>Unknown</name><email>[email protected]</email><gd:image rel='http://schemas.google.com/g/2005#thumbnail' width='16' height='16' src='https://img1.blogblog.com/img/b16-rounded.gif'/></author><media:thumbnail xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/" url="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-JvEIYYOAspA/VjpMwZvh8JI/AAAAAAAABv0/VkiskZm4oyE/s72-c/group_sharing.png" height="72" width="72"/></entry><entry><id>tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5320550312748173929.post-8170656522302219339</id><published>2015-10-07T11:07:00.001-07:00</published><updated>2015-10-07T11:07:13.029-07:00</updated><title type='text'>Keep your memories safe with WhatsApp and Google Drive</title><content type='html'>&lt;div dir=&quot;ltr&quot; style=&quot;margin-bottom: 0pt; margin-top: 0pt;&quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;font-family: Arial;&quot;&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;line-height: 20.24px; white-space: pre-wrap;&quot;&gt;Whether it’s recounting a story, watching a video, or enjoying photos with family and friends, our memories help us reconnect with what’s really important.

Building on this open approach, we recently made it possible to &lt;a href=&quot;http://googledrive.blogspot.com/2014/11/launch-desktop-applications-from-google.html&quot;&gt;launch your favorite desktop applications&lt;/a&gt; directly from Google Drive. And today we’re taking it a step further by bringing Google Drive to Microsoft Office.  Using the new &lt;a href=&quot;https://tools.google.com/dlpage/driveforoffice&quot;&gt;Google Drive plug-in&lt;/a&gt;, people using Office for Windows can now open their Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents stored in Drive, then save any changes back to Drive once they’re done. &lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-LK-yBvI4DPE/Va5Zq43Pa8I/AAAAAAAADnQ/KvZiwIj6cR4/s1600/blog_driveplugin2.png&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; height=&quot;385&quot; src=&quot;http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-LK-yBvI4DPE/Va5Zq43Pa8I/AAAAAAAADnQ/KvZiwIj6cR4/s640/blog_driveplugin2.png&quot; width=&quot;640&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;If you’re working on a document, spreadsheet or presentation that’s on your computer, you can also save that file to Google Drive, directly from the Office apps. This is especially useful for sharing files with teams, or for accessing your files across devices. &lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-bSngXgHeadY/Va5Z-8YoW4I/AAAAAAAADnY/TsAwsiDYN-w/s1600/blog_new_saveas.png&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; src=&quot;http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-bSngXgHeadY/Va5Z-8YoW4I/AAAAAAAADnY/TsAwsiDYN-w/s1600/blog_new_saveas.png&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;With this &lt;a href=&quot;https://tools.google.com/dlpage/driveforoffice&quot;&gt;plug-in&lt;/a&gt;, you can use the apps you’re already comfortable with, while benefitting from the security and convenience of Google Drive.   &lt;br&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;span class=&quot;byline-author&quot;&gt;Posted by Darrell Kuhn, Technical Program Manager, Google Drive plug-in&lt;/span&gt; &lt;br&gt; &lt;i&gt;(Cross-posted on the &lt;a href=&quot;http://googleforwork.blogspot.com/2015/07/introducing-google-drive-plug-in-for.html&quot;&gt;Google for Work Blog&lt;/a&gt;.)&lt;/i&gt; &lt;/div&gt;</content><link rel='edit' type='application/atom+xml' href='http://www.blogger.com/feeds/5320550312748173929/posts/default/2417618407455483189'/><link rel='self' type='application/atom+xml' href='http://www.blogger.com/feeds/5320550312748173929/posts/default/2417618407455483189'/><link rel='alternate' type='text/html' href='http://drive.googleblog.com/2015/07/google-drive-plug-in-for-office.html' title='Introducing the Google Drive plug-in for Microsoft Office'/><author><name>Unknown</name><email>[email protected]</email><gd:image rel='http://schemas.google.com/g/2005#thumbnail' width='16' height='16' src='https://img1.blogblog.com/img/b16-rounded.gif'/></author><media:thumbnail xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/" url="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-LK-yBvI4DPE/Va5Zq43Pa8I/AAAAAAAADnQ/KvZiwIj6cR4/s72-c/blog_driveplugin2.png" height="72" width="72"/></entry><entry><id>tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5320550312748173929.post-910227186649052827</id><published>2015-03-30T11:07:00.000-07:00</published><updated>2015-03-30T11:07:01.441-07:00</updated><title type='text'>Your photos and files, together in Drive</title><content type='html'>We take all kinds of photos, from pics of friends and family to snapshots of a scenic view. We also use photos for more practical purposes, like planning a wedding, remodeling a kitchen, or capturing meeting notes from a whiteboard. But while you may snap all sorts of images, your experience across Google should be seamless and consistent. That’s why starting today, the photos and videos you keep in Google+ Photos will also be available in Google Drive.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-AZeoyzrWLso/VRmQQHI2AoI/AAAAAAAABsg/Oe-rnKqj6Hk/s1600/drive_photos_nexus6_animated2.gif&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; src=&quot;http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-AZeoyzrWLso/VRmQQHI2AoI/AAAAAAAABsg/Oe-rnKqj6Hk/s1600/drive_photos_nexus6_animated2.gif&quot; height=&quot;640&quot; width=&quot;337&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;To get started, just look for the new Photos menu in Drive for &lt;a href=&quot;https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.docs&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Android&lt;/a&gt;, &lt;a href=&quot;https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/google-drive-free-online-storage/id507874739&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;iOS&lt;/a&gt; and the &lt;a href=&quot;https://drive.google.com/&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;web&lt;/a&gt;. From there you&#39;ll be able to manage your photos and videos alongside other types of files. For example, you can now add pictures of wedding venues and cakes to the same Drive folder as your guest list and budget.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Google+ Photos will of course keep helping you store, edit and share your pics. But if you want to organize all your files, all in one place, Drive is here to help. You’ll start seeing your photos in Drive today—immediately if they’re new, and a few weeks for your entire library—so give it a try, and let us know what you think.

While everything stored in Drive is always encrypted in transit and at rest in Google’s custom-built data centers, this checkup ensures you’re making the most of the 24/7 protection you already get from Google. As our way of saying thanks for completing the checkup by 17 February 2015, we’ll give you a permanent 2 gigabyte bump in your Google Drive storage plan.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;It takes just a couple of minutes and, unlike other checkups, it won’t leave you feeling guilty about not flossing. Here’s what it does:&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;ul&gt;&lt;ul&gt;&lt;li&gt;&lt;b&gt;Ensures your account recovery information is current&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If we detect suspicious activity in your account, we use your recovery info to get in touch and make sure no one but you gains access.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;&lt;b&gt;Lets you review recent sign-in activity&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Reviewing this lets you validate the sign-ins are coming from you and not someone who shouldn&#39;t be using your credentials.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;&lt;b&gt;Confirms the apps and devices that access some account information&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;This step lets you monitor this list and remove apps and devices that don&#39;t need access to your account any more.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;/ul&gt;&lt;br /&gt;After you’ve gone through the checkup successfully, you’ll see three green checkboxes (see below) that confirm you’re eligible for the free storage and, more importantly, that you’ve taken steps to enhance your online safety. We’ll be granting the storage automatically to everyone around 28 February 2015 and we’ll send you an email when your adjustment is complete.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;img alt=&quot;&quot; border=&quot;0&quot; src=&quot;http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-vG7YJAQ2BLQ/VNk_a5MdJtI/AAAAAAAABrg/1PQV2QNMyYs/s1600/checkup.png&quot; title=&quot;&quot; width=&quot;430&quot; /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;Ideally, you’ll revisit this checkup every so often or anytime your account changes, like when you get a new phone or replace an old laptop.

The updated apps also respond well to screen magnification, in case you need to zoom in for a closer look.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;These updates are rolling out now, so look for them on &lt;a href=&quot;https://play.google.com/store/apps/collection/promotion_3000684_new_google_docs&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Google Play&lt;/a&gt; and the App Store (&lt;a href=&quot;https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/google-docs/id842842640?mt=8&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Docs&lt;/a&gt;, &lt;a href=&quot;https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/google-sheets/id842849113?mt=8&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Sheets&lt;/a&gt;, &lt;a href=&quot;https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/google-slides/id879478102?mt=8&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Slides&lt;/a&gt;), and download the new versions as they become available.

style=&quot;text-align: left;&quot; trbidi=&quot;on&quot;&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: left;&quot;&gt;&lt;i&gt;Cross-posted from the &lt;a href=&quot;http://googleforwork.blogspot.com/2014/12/2014-cheers-for-docs-sheets-slides-forms.html&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Google for Work Blog&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/i&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: left;&quot;&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: left;&quot;&gt;90,000 hours. That’s the amount of time the average person spends working during their lifetime. To put that in perspective, if you spend 90,000 hours watching movies and did nothing else — no sleep, no breaks — you would be watching for 10 years non-stop.&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: left;&quot;&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: left;&quot;&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Since you spend so much time at work, we want you to have the latest Google Apps updates when they&#39;re available to make working easier. That means your apps are constantly being updated with new and helpful features almost every week to ensure you have the latest tools, security updates and speed improvements — as soon as they’re ready. And that applies across the Docs editors as well. So as a busy 2014 comes to a close, we want to highlight a few of the new ways get things done with Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drawings and Forms. &lt;/div&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: left;&quot;&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: left;&quot;&gt;&lt;b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;b&gt;Work with any kind of file&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: left;&quot;&gt;You come across all types of files all day. The last thing you want to worry about is what software you need in order to view or edit these files. For this reason, we made it so you can &lt;a href=&quot;http://googleforwork.blogspot.com/2014/07/docs-sheets-and-slides-work-with-any.html&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;open and edit Office files&lt;/a&gt; directly in Google Docs, Sheets and Slides, on your desktop, phone or tablet. &lt;/div&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: left;&quot;&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: left;&quot;&gt;&lt;b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;b&gt;Make suggestions&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div style=&quot;text-align: left;&quot;&gt;Editing files in real-time with others is a great way to work together across the Docs editors, and many of you asked for the ability to suggest changes in other peoples’ documents, rather than making edits directly. Now you can do just that with &lt;a href=&quot;http://googleforwork.blogspot.com/2014/07/docs-sheets-and-slides-work-with-any.html&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Suggest Edits in Docs&lt;/a&gt;. Make suggestions that can be accepted or rejected with a single click. And when you convert a Word file to Docs or vice versa, your tracked changes will convert as well.&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-fNw7y36g35w/VI8q8iHsDtI/AAAAAAAADDA/MjawbTuqSmU/s1600/SuggestEdits.gif&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; src=&quot;http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-fNw7y36g35w/VI8q8iHsDtI/AAAAAAAADDA/MjawbTuqSmU/s640/SuggestEdits.gif&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;b&gt;Work on any of your devices.&lt;/b&gt;We created &lt;a href=&quot;http://googledrive.blogspot.com/2014/04/docssheetsapps.html&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;new mobile apps for Docs, Sheets and Slides&lt;/a&gt; across Android and iOS, where you can edit your documents, presentations and spreadsheets on the go. While working in the cloud means you have access to your documents on any of these devices, you can still access or create documents even if you don’t have a data or WiFi connection.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;b&gt;Edit your images directly&lt;/b&gt;Sometimes the best way to convey a thought is visually and you need your images to look just right, which is why we made it easier to edit and adjust images. You can now &lt;a href=&quot;http://googledrive.blogspot.com/2014/03/edit-images-right-in-google-slides-and.html&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;crop&lt;/a&gt; your images, even masking the crop to specific shapes, and add borders in Docs, Slides and Drawings. Plus, you can &lt;a href=&quot;https://plus.google.com/+GoogleforWork/posts/RHKbQnnRtP6?e=-RedirectToSandbox&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;connect objects and images in Slides and Drawings&lt;/a&gt;, &lt;a href=&quot;http://googledrive.blogspot.com/2014/10/editimagesinslides.html&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;recolor and change opacity&lt;/a&gt; of images in Slides, and even add effects.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Get things done faster&lt;/b&gt;We want to help you take care of your common tasks. And you know what lots of people make in documents? Bullet lists. So now, just type an asterisk (*) and it will automatically become bullets in Docs and Slides. Nobody likes having to do the same thing twice (unless you’re Santa) so just copy and paste your charts between different spreadsheets in Sheets. For all the regression lovers out there, you can also add &lt;a href=&quot;https://plus.google.com/+GoogleforWork/posts/dCH8dS7CSMD?e=-RedirectToSandbox&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;trendlines&lt;/a&gt;, and to further visualize trends, you can add miniature charts, or &lt;a href=&quot;https://plus.google.com/+GoogleDrive/posts/Q9QEEmtywt1?&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;sparklines&lt;/a&gt;, into individual cells.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Get answers to your surveys&lt;/b&gt;Forms is a great way to gather information, and across 2014, we added lots of new ways to ask questions and get answers. You can &lt;a href=&quot;http://googledrive.blogspot.com/2014/09/custom-forms-themes.html&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;customize themes&lt;/a&gt; in Forms to add your own flare and create short URLs that are easier to share. There are also lots of new question options, like &lt;a href=&quot;http://googledrive.blogspot.com/2014/09/a-few-more-ways-to-make-forms-your-own.html&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;limiting&lt;/a&gt; one response per person and shuffling the answer order.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Add tons of functionality from 3rd parties&lt;/b&gt;Add-ons for &lt;a href=&quot;http://googledrive.blogspot.com/2014/03/add-ons.html&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Docs, Sheets&lt;/a&gt; and &lt;a href=&quot;http://googledrive.blogspot.com/2014/10/formsadd-ons.html&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Forms&lt;/a&gt; are tools created by developers that help you do those extra things you need help with, whether it’s printing mailing labels or adding MLA-approved citations, right from your document.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Let there be tables&lt;/b&gt;You can add borders and backgrounds to your tables, and &lt;a href=&quot;https://plus.google.com/+GoogleDrive/posts/fDKE7htJ2Ma?&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;merge cells together&lt;/a&gt; to get your tables to look just how you want. And when you convert your legacy files to Docs, the table cells and borders will still be there so you can keep working.&lt;a href=&quot;http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-A5PQbBCFGt0/VI8pG3pGvHI/AAAAAAAADCs/qhI0RcPSjbQ/s1600/Mondrian.gif&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; src=&quot;http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-A5PQbBCFGt0/VI8pG3pGvHI/AAAAAAAADCs/qhI0RcPSjbQ/s1600/Mondrian.gif&quot; height=&quot;414&quot; width=&quot;640&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;b&gt;And let everyone, including blind and low-vision users, get work done&lt;/b&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://googleforwork.blogspot.com/2014/09/google-drive-and-docs-editors-designed.html&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Across Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drawings and Forms&lt;/a&gt;, it’s much easier to use a screen reader, with better text-to-voice verbalization and improvements to keyboard navigation. You can now use braille support to read and enter text in Docs, Slides and Drawings. And you can collaborate easier with others in Docs, Sheets, Slides or Drawings because screen readers announce when people enter or leave the document, and you’ll hear when others are editing alongside you.  We’ll continue to make a ton of updates behind the scenes to ensure everything keeps running faster and smoother next year.

Simplify your holidays with Google Docs</title><content type='html'>The Docs editors don’t just make things easier at work—they’re handy for helping you get stuff done at home too, especially around the holidays. We’ve rounded up five ideas to help you focus on the cheer—we’ll take care of the rest.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;1. Sending holiday cards? Refresh your address book first.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Use &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.google.com/forms/about&quot;&gt;Forms&lt;/a&gt; to make it easy for friends and family to send you their most recent mailing addresses. Just create a quick form and email it out or post the link on social media. Everyone’s addresses will be neatly added to a private spreadsheet.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-MCwKCjIr52c/VIsnHnnv5TI/AAAAAAAABqI/BJ-QX59IypU/s1600/Screen%2BShot%2B2014-12-05%2Bat%2B11.26.43%2BAM.png&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; src=&quot;http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-MCwKCjIr52c/VIsnHnnv5TI/AAAAAAAABqI/BJ-QX59IypU/s1600/Screen%2BShot%2B2014-12-05%2Bat%2B11.26.43%2BAM.png&quot; height=&quot;640&quot; width=&quot;580&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;b&gt;2. Now that you’ve got your addresses up to date—print out mailing labels.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Use the handy &lt;a href=&quot;https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/avery-label-merge/onacejilpbdgdhhoijnggpjolbdajepo?hl=en-US&quot;&gt;Avery Label Merge add-on&lt;/a&gt; to pull your holiday card addresses from Sheets into an Avery label template in Docs. Pop your labels into the printer, hit print and start sticking!&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Ns90fMPYGrI/VIsnNCrPi5I/AAAAAAAABqQ/9oJJmIaCB3o/s1600/Screen%2BShot%2B2014-12-05%2Bat%2B11.32.08%2BAM.png&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; src=&quot;http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-Ns90fMPYGrI/VIsnNCrPi5I/AAAAAAAABqQ/9oJJmIaCB3o/s1600/Screen%2BShot%2B2014-12-05%2Bat%2B11.32.08%2BAM.png&quot; height=&quot;198&quot; width=&quot;640&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;b&gt;3. Send a digital, collaborative holiday letter with Docs.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&amp;nbsp;If you’d rather send holiday letters instead of cards, &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.google.com/docs/about&quot;&gt;Docs&lt;/a&gt; can let everyone in the family contribute, no matter where they are in the country or the world. Just create a doc, give everyone edit access and write your card together (and leave your thoughts and opinions with s&lt;a href=&quot;https://support.google.com/docs/answer/6033474?hl=en&quot;&gt;uggested edits &amp;amp; comments&lt;/a&gt;). When it’s ready to go, you can &lt;a href=&quot;https://support.google.com/docs/answer/37579?hl=en&quot;&gt;publish it&lt;/a&gt; and share a link, or go old school and print and mail it out.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-mJ4fbdPmSNQ/VIsnRYIpQII/AAAAAAAABqY/fQ0hrZSCUO0/s1600/holiday_letter_fional.png&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; src=&quot;http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-mJ4fbdPmSNQ/VIsnRYIpQII/AAAAAAAABqY/fQ0hrZSCUO0/s1600/holiday_letter_fional.png&quot; height=&quot;316&quot; width=&quot;640&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;b&gt;4. Give your documents and presentations a holiday touch with royalty-free images.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Choose from a bunch of free holiday-themed &lt;a href=&quot;https://support.google.com/docs/answer/97447?hl=en&quot;&gt;images&lt;/a&gt; in Docs and Slides to make your holiday projects a little more festive. Just click Insert &amp;gt; Image &amp;gt; Search &amp;gt; Stock images to browse.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://2.bp.blogspot.com/--bXOJKAnYq4/VIsnWHub89I/AAAAAAAABqg/EAdxP2ljGqc/s1600/Screen%2BShot%2B2014-12-04%2Bat%2B1.52.47%2BPM.png&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; src=&quot;http://2.bp.blogspot.com/--bXOJKAnYq4/VIsnWHub89I/AAAAAAAABqg/EAdxP2ljGqc/s1600/Screen%2BShot%2B2014-12-04%2Bat%2B1.52.47%2BPM.png&quot; height=&quot;266&quot; width=&quot;640&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;b&gt;5. Create visual wishlists to share.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Have a bit of fun with your family&#39;s holiday wish lists by making&amp;nbsp;&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.google.com/slides/about&quot;&gt;Slides&lt;/a&gt; for Santa. Share these visual wish lists with anyone who’s looking to pick up something for your family. &lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-WqzMMCCsaZk/VIsndn-4rHI/AAAAAAAABqo/ETYj_c4p62E/s1600/holiday_wishlist.png&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; src=&quot;http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-WqzMMCCsaZk/VIsndn-4rHI/AAAAAAAABqo/ETYj_c4p62E/s1600/holiday_wishlist.png&quot; height=&quot;374&quot; width=&quot;640&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;</content><link rel='edit' type='application/atom+xml' href='http://www.blogger.com/feeds/5320550312748173929/posts/default/8938474379585346271'/><link rel='self' type='application/atom+xml' href='http://www.blogger.com/feeds/5320550312748173929/posts/default/8938474379585346271'/><link rel='alternate' type='text/html' href='http://drive.googleblog.com/2014/12/docs-holiday-tips-2015.html' title='Now, Docs!

They can also provide extra stress when planes get delayed, cookies burn, and family photos go missing.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;This holiday season, try these 5 tips for using Google Drive to keep yourself and your family organized, connected, and above all, happy.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;ol&gt;&lt;li&gt;&lt;b&gt;Organize your holiday essentials&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Having trouble keeping track of the flight itineraries your children are sending your way? Maybe you just need a central space to store photos from a family trip? With Google Drive, you can &lt;a href=&quot;https://support.google.com/drive/answer/2375091&quot;&gt;organize your stuff into folders&lt;/a&gt; so you can easily come back to it.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;To create a folder, click &lt;b&gt;New&lt;/b&gt; in the top left corner of Drive, choose &lt;b&gt;Folder&lt;/b&gt;, and name it. From there, you can drag and drop your stuff into it or right-click a file and choose &lt;b&gt;Move&lt;/b&gt; to to add it to a folder. Now the need to dig around your desktop is gone!&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;&lt;b&gt;Quickly share files with your entire family&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/b&gt;Have a pie recipe that you want to send to others? Quickly &lt;a href=&quot;https://support.google.com/drive/answer/2494822&quot;&gt;share it&lt;/a&gt; straight from Drive. You can even decide whether the people you are sharing it with can edit, comment on, or simply view what you send them. That way, you can keep your grandson from “accidentally” adding an extra pound of sugar to your recipe.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;To share your recipe (or any other file), select it in Drive, click the &lt;b&gt;Share icon&lt;/b&gt; and add the email addresses of the people you want to share it with. Next to the addresses, choose from the drop-down menu which &lt;a href=&quot;https://support.google.com/drive/answer/2494886&quot;&gt;level of access&lt;/a&gt; you want people to have (e.g. edit, comment or view). Then let the family bake-off begin.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;&lt;b&gt;Go attachment-free in your holiday emails&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/b&gt;When sending invitations to your family’s annual holiday party with Gmail, you can also &lt;a href=&quot;https://support.google.com/drive/answer/2480713&quot;&gt;add a big file straight from Drive&lt;/a&gt;, like the home video you put together for the occasion. Adding the file from Drive keeps you from using up storage space in Gmail and allows you to control who has access to the file you’ve included.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;When writing an email in Gmail, you can add a file from Drive at any time by clicking the &lt;b&gt;Drive icon&lt;/b&gt; at the bottom of the email and choosing a file to add. Now everyone can see that video&amp;nbsp;showcasing your unparalleled baking skills.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;&lt;b&gt;No Internet at the cabin? No problem&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/b&gt;Relaxing with nature doesn’t mean you shouldn&#39;t be able to see your photos or keep working on the holiday newsletter. Before you lose access to your Internet connection, simply sign in to your Chrome browser and visit &lt;a href=&quot;http://drive.google.com/&quot;&gt;drive.google.com&lt;/a&gt;. That way, anytime you lose Internet or WiFi, you can just go back to Drive in Chrome and your files will be immediately &lt;a href=&quot;https://support.google.com/drive/answer/2375012&quot;&gt;viewable offline&lt;/a&gt;!&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;You can even edit your Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides offline, and all the changes you make will be saved for when your Internet connection comes back. That way, you can enjoy the end of fall without falling behind.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;&lt;b&gt;Family photos and shopping lists on every device&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/b&gt;Whether you’re in your living room or at the holiday party, on your laptop or your phone, you’ll never be without the ability to show off your family photos with Drive. You can &lt;a href=&quot;http://g.co/getdrive&quot;&gt;download the Drive app&lt;/a&gt; for your Android&amp;nbsp;or iOS device and have all of your files available on your phone or tablet — even offline. &lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;On your Mac or PC, install the Drive app so files in Drive are synced to those devices, too. As always, Chromebooks automatically use Drive to store files so those all important shopping lists and recipes are safely stored and available from anywhere.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Bonus – Scan your holiday receipts on Android&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/b&gt;It can be difficult to keep track of all your receipts when you’re at the mall doing holiday shopping. With the Drive app for Android, you can &lt;a href=&quot;https://support.google.com/drive/answer/3145835&quot;&gt;scan all of your receipts&lt;/a&gt; directly into Drive so that you can easily organize them when you get home.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;To scan a receipt or another file, open the Drive app, click the plus (+) sign in the bottom right, and click Scan. You can then scan the item with your phone’s camera and it immediately gets uploaded to your Drive. And with that, no more boxes of receipts to sift through on Tax Day.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ol&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Impress the loved ones this holiday season by staying organized with Drive, regardless of whether you plan to travel cross-country to visit family or simply spend a few days at home in comfortable sweatpants.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Happy holidays!&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Posted by Max Davidson, User Education Specialist for Google Drive&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;</content><link rel='edit' type='application/atom+xml' href='http://www.blogger.com/feeds/5320550312748173929/posts/default/3466764972387101199'/><link rel='self' type='application/atom+xml' href='http://www.blogger.com/feeds/5320550312748173929/posts/default/3466764972387101199'/><link rel='alternate' type='text/html' href='http://drive.googleblog.com/2014/12/google-drive-5-ways-to-take-some-stress.html' title='Google Drive: 5 ways to take some stress out of the holidays'/><author><name>Unknown</name><email>[email protected]</email><gd:image rel='http://schemas.google.com/g/2005#thumbnail' width='16' height='16' src='https://img1.blogblog.com/img/b16-rounded.gif'/></author></entry><entry><id>tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5320550312748173929.post-6640201097198138497</id><published>2014-11-21T09:04:00.001-08:00</published><updated>2014-11-24T09:27:00.199-08:00</updated><title type='text'>Getting in the holiday spirit: 1TB of Drive storage for new Chromebooks</title><content type='html'>Chromebooks make day-to-day computing fast, simple and secure, whether you’re searching for a great pumpkin pie recipe or sharing a family photo from Google Drive. And now, as a bonus for the holiday season, new Chromebook buyers can get 1TB of Google Drive storage for two years — almost $240 in value — absolutely free.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;That’s enough space to keep more than 100,000 &lt;a href=&quot;https://plus.google.com/b/112893701314508522131/photos/112893701314508522131/albums/6084203558384321505/6084203562688191826?pid=6084203562688191826&amp;amp;oid=112893701314508522131&quot;&gt;awkward holiday sweater pics&lt;/a&gt; safe and shareable in Drive. With that much free storage, you can use your Chromebook for work, play and pretty much everything else you’ll do this holiday season.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The 1TB comes with the purchase of a new, eligible Chromebook for as little as $199.

Before, if you wanted to do any serious computing, you’d have to install software onto your computer. But these days, most of that can be done right from within the browser. For example, you can use Google Drive to preview files&amp;nbsp;&lt;a href=&quot;http://googledrive.blogspot.com/2013/11/attachments-in-gmail-now-with-power-of.html&quot;&gt;directly in Gmail&lt;/a&gt;, create and share Google Docs, Sheets and Slides, and even edit other file types like &lt;a href=&quot;http://googledrive.blogspot.com/2014/06/newdocssheetsslides.html&quot;&gt;Microsoft Office documents&lt;/a&gt; without installing a single thing on your hard drive.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;But here’s the catch: when it comes to browsers and installed applications working well together, they aren’t quite on the same page. To change that, today we’re launching a new extension for Chrome&amp;nbsp;that lets you open files from Google Drive directly into a compatible application installed on your computer. This includes apps like advanced image and video editing software, accounting and tax programs, or 3D animation and design tools. So, no matter what you keep in Drive, using the web to access and manage files doesn’t mean you’re limited to using applications that only work in your browser.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-JBMu2ES5L4A/VFlrCWrfB7I/AAAAAAAABpU/S3XHSh0Ff-4/s1600/switchblade3.gif&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; src=&quot;http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-JBMu2ES5L4A/VFlrCWrfB7I/AAAAAAAABpU/S3XHSh0Ff-4/s1600/switchblade3.gif&quot; height=&quot;433&quot; width=&quot;640&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;To get started, install the latest version of the &lt;a href=&quot;https://tools.google.com/dlpage/drive&quot;&gt;Drive app for Mac or PC&lt;/a&gt; (version 1.18) and sync your files. Then, visit Google Drive in your Chrome browser (make sure you’re on &lt;a href=&quot;https://support.google.com/drive/answer/6021328&quot;&gt;the new Google Drive&lt;/a&gt;). Finally, right-click on the file and select “Open with” to see a list of compatible applications on your computer that can open it. For example, you can choose to open a PDF file with Adobe Reader, or a .psd with Photoshop, make your edits and save back changes to Drive which will sync across all your devices and other collaborators. If you have any questions about this feature, you can learn more in the &lt;a href=&quot;https://support.google.com/drive/answer/2423485#webapps&quot;&gt;Help Center&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Please note: This extension will be rolling out over the next several days.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Posted by Rachel Barton, Product Manager, Google Drive</content><link rel='edit' type='application/atom+xml' href='http://www.blogger.com/feeds/5320550312748173929/posts/default/4018291852181033378'/><link rel='self' type='application/atom+xml' href='http://www.blogger.com/feeds/5320550312748173929/posts/default/4018291852181033378'/><link rel='alternate' type='text/html' href='http://drive.googleblog.com/2014/11/launch-desktop-applications-from-google.html' title='Launch desktop applications from Google Drive in Chrome'/><author><name>Unknown</name><email>[email protected]</email><gd:image rel='http://schemas.google.com/g/2005#thumbnail' width='16' height='16' src='https://img1.blogblog.com/img/b16-rounded.gif'/></author><media:thumbnail xmlns:media="http://search.yahoo.com/mrss/" url="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-JBMu2ES5L4A/VFlrCWrfB7I/AAAAAAAABpU/S3XHSh0Ff-4/s72-c/switchblade3.gif" height="72" width="72"/></entry><entry><id>tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5320550312748173929.post-3276690676910025700</id><published>2014-10-30T11:05:00.001-07:00</published><updated>2014-10-30T11:05:31.260-07:00</updated><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="docs"/><category scheme="http://www.blogger.com/atom/ns#" term="nanowrimo"/><title type='text'>Celebrating National Novel Writing Month: 3 authors, 1 Google Doc, 1 hour, and 1 line provided by YOU! </title><content type='html'>&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://d3bhawflmd1fic.cloudfront.net/assets/crest-bda7b7a6e1b57bb9fb8ce9772b8faafb.png&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; src=&quot;http://d3bhawflmd1fic.cloudfront.net/assets/crest-bda7b7a6e1b57bb9fb8ce9772b8faafb.png&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;Every year on November 1, thousands of people aim to start and finish a 50,000-word novel by 11:59pm on November 30. This fun, seat-of-your pants approach to creative writing is called &lt;a href=&quot;http://nanowrimo.org/about&quot;&gt;National Novel Writing Month&lt;/a&gt; (or NaNoWriMo), and we think it’s pretty awesome. But you know what could make it even more awesome -- doing it together... live!&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;To celebrate we’ve invited three of our favorite writers to get creative together. They won’t be writing a full novel, but on November 18, they will be collaborating in Google Docs to write a short story in just one hour. You’ll be able to watch the whole thing as they swap sentences in real time. Afterward, we’ll have a Q&amp;amp;A with the authors moderated by NaNoWriMo director (and dedicated participant), Grant Faulkner.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Of course, every great story needs a great beginning, and that’s where we need your help! You’ll tell the authors how the story should begin, whether it’s with  the classic “Once upon a time…” or something completely random like “Before he came to Tuberville, Roger Pickens had never seen a chicken.”&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;To participate, &lt;a href=&quot;https://docs.google.com/a/google.com/forms/d/1p1o6-7KWz3y_4q7w7t4EdIYXdO16O0LGmvYkz8rgxGw/viewform&quot;&gt;send us your opening line&lt;/a&gt; ideas until November 12th. Then, on November 18, you can tune in to view the winning prompt, and watch as the writers transform that sentence into a one-of-a-kind story, right in front of your eyes.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;One prompt, one Doc, one hour. Three talented writers. And the tale unfolds from there...&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Meet the collaborating authors&amp;nbsp;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;table align=&quot;center&quot; cellpadding=&quot;0&quot; cellspacing=&quot;0&quot; class=&quot;tr-caption-container&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;tbody&gt;&lt;tr&gt;&lt;td style=&quot;text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-GBFYcdnkb9Q/VFJTQt50gjI/AAAAAAAABok/sKErFP5yQeg/s1600/HOA_Calendar_NANOWRIMO.jpg&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; src=&quot;http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-GBFYcdnkb9Q/VFJTQt50gjI/AAAAAAAABok/sKErFP5yQeg/s1600/HOA_Calendar_NANOWRIMO.jpg&quot; height=&quot;360&quot; width=&quot;640&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/td&gt;&lt;/tr&gt;&lt;tr&gt;&lt;td class=&quot;tr-caption&quot; style=&quot;text-align: center;&quot;&gt;(Edan Lepucki, Tope Folarin, Mike Curato)&lt;/td&gt;&lt;/tr&gt;&lt;/tbody&gt;&lt;/table&gt;&lt;b&gt;Edan Lepucki&lt;/b&gt;’s debut novel, &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.powells.com/biblio/62-9780316250818-0&quot;&gt;California&lt;/a&gt;, debuted at #3 on the New York Times Bestsellers List and has been the #1 bestseller on the Los Angeles Times and San Francisco Chronicle bestseller lists.

We want you to easily find and share your documents, photos, and PDFs with others. So, in addition to a &lt;a href=&quot;http://www.google.com/design/spec/material-design/introduction.html#&quot;&gt;Material Design&lt;/a&gt; facelift, the latest update for Android gives you new ways to add, locate, and share from Drive.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Improved Search&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The search tool makes it even easier to find the content you’re looking for by updating results as you type each letter into the search box.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-DYj228YcG1k/VFfGxIAr4tI/AAAAAAAABo0/q7pwBoMwOS4/s1600/search.png&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; src=&quot;http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-DYj228YcG1k/VFfGxIAr4tI/AAAAAAAABo0/q7pwBoMwOS4/s1600/search.png&quot; height=&quot;320&quot; width=&quot;220&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Better Sharing&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Now, you can add a custom message when you share a file so your collaborators know why you sent it—for example, &amp;nbsp;you can add a note asking for feedback. You can also turn on link sharing to make the file “public” and set access to view, comment, or edit. This automatically copies the link to the clipboard and allows you to paste it wherever you want.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-yqWNX7jLhWM/VFfG92PxrWI/AAAAAAAABo8/qzjyu-XWeK0/s1600/sharing_modals.png&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; src=&quot;http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-yqWNX7jLhWM/VFfG92PxrWI/AAAAAAAABo8/qzjyu-XWeK0/s1600/sharing_modals.png&quot; height=&quot;150&quot; width=&quot;320&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;b&gt;Enhanced PDF Viewer&lt;/b&gt;&lt;br /&gt;A new PDF viewer lets you find, select and copy text in PDFs, plus, it’s built right into Drive so you don’t need to launch another app.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div class=&quot;separator&quot; style=&quot;clear: both; text-align: center;&quot;&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-fyaCtcI3KZM/VFfHCG04yVI/AAAAAAAABpE/xMLT3XXBQCM/s1600/pdf_select.png&quot; imageanchor=&quot;1&quot; style=&quot;margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;&quot;&gt;&lt;img border=&quot;0&quot; src=&quot;http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-fyaCtcI3KZM/VFfHCG04yVI/AAAAAAAABpE/xMLT3XXBQCM/s1600/pdf_select.png&quot; height=&quot;320&quot; width=&quot;282&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Look for these updates to roll out over the next several days.

target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Forms&lt;/a&gt; has been getting a bunch of updates to help you make good looking surveys, like &lt;a href=&quot;http://googledrive.blogspot.com/2014/09/custom-forms-themes.html&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;new theme choices&lt;/a&gt; and the ability to create your own personalized themes.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;To give you even more flexibility and options, we’re introducing add-ons for Forms—new tools, created by developer partners, that deliver even more features to your surveys (just like add-ons for &lt;a href=&quot;http://googledrive.blogspot.com/2014/03/add-ons.html&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Docs and Sheets&lt;/a&gt;).&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Add-ons bring handy extras to your survey building experience, like setting a survey end date, sending custom emails based on responses, storing lists of choices that you frequently add to questions, and more.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;You can access add-ons from the “Add-ons” menu in Forms, or by directly visiting the &lt;a href=&quot;https://docs.google.com/forms/create?addon_store&quot;
