Google Drive gets inline uploads for Android, better syncing options for desktop

Google Drive Inline uploads

Google is bringing new features to Drive on Android as well as desktop app on PC/Mac. The Drive app for Android gets inline uploads while improved syncing options.

First up, Google Drive for Android now the uploaded files will appear within the destination folder to which you uploaded the file, along with a clear upload progress indicator. Prior to this update, when uploading files to Google Drive, they would be sent to a folder called Uploads, instead of a destination folder.

Next up, the update gives you more control over how you sync Drive files to your PC. You can now select only the folders and subfolders that needs to be synced. In order to do this, you will have to head to Preferences > Sync Options > Only these folders. Moving on, Drive’s interface will show the size of your individual subfolders as well as the space remaining on your computer. It will also warn you if there is not enough space to sync. Finally, Google will also now warn you if you move a file out a shared folder.

The improved Google Drive sync client is available now on both Windows and Mac. While the Drive update for Android will roll out gradually.
