If you have a lot of files, trying to search for them could be quite a chore, especially if you’re not in the habit of naming them properly. Well the good news is that Google wants to make your life easier by allowing you to search for files using the “OK Google” command in Google Drive. Drive, for those unfamiliar, is Google’s cloud storage option.
Users are able to upload files onto it as well as create documents, spreadsheets, and presentations that can be shared and collaborated with. The update to the Android version of Google Drive will now allow users to search for files directly via a Google Voice Search on their phone.
To activate it, users will need to say “OK Google” followed by the name of the file and end with “on Drive”, and Google will be able to pull up a list of documents matching your search queries without you having to type it out or search for it manually. The bad news is that the update has yet to be made available.
According to Google, the update is expected to be rolled out over the next week or so, so we guess we’ll just have to keep our eyes peeled for it. In the meantime what do you guys think of the latest update? Are you excited at the prospect of searching for files using voice commands?
