Do you use Google Drive a whole lot ever since it was released? Working on the cloud sure as heck has its fair share of advantages, but sometimes, when you do not have access to the Internet, that would be the moment where a local file comes in handy. Well, Google intends to make Google Drive a whole lot more user friendly this time around by offering you the option of previewing your file before opening it. You are able to check out over 30 file types, where you can then quickly flip between those files until you come across the one that you were looking for.
The new preview can be seen automatically if you open a photo, video, or PDF. In order to check out a preview of a Google document, all you need to do is right-click on the file name, select “preview”, and you’re good to go. The moment the preview window is open, click on the arrows on either side to flip to other files. The preview itself allows you to check out video files or scroll through multi-page documents, how about that? This is definitely a step in the right direction in increasing productivity levels at the office for sure. Expect to see this feature roll out in the coming days.
