Google has released a redesigned Google Drive app for iOS.

Google Drive is getting a new look and feel on iOS and Android, making it easier to communicate and collaborate across files in Drive on mobile devices. This Material redesign is part of a larger effort to bring the look and feel of our G Suite apps together as a whole, with ease-of-use in mind.

What's New In This Version:
● New Home tab and bottom navigation
Similar to Drive on the web, the Home tab will surface the files that are most important to you, based on things like:
○ The last time you accessed or edited a file
○ Who specific files are frequently shared with
○ What files are used at specific times of day.

● A more intuitive bottom navigation bar that features options to switch between Home, Starred, files shared with you (Shared), and all files (Files), allowing for quicker access to your most important items.

● Expanded search bar
○ The search bar is now more accessible across the application, including from the Team Drives page.

● My Drive, Team Drives and Computers in Files view
○ Team Drives will be now be displayed as a tab next to My Drive in the Files view. Users will also see a Computers tab if they have backed up content from a local machine to their account.

● New account switching experience
○ The feature to switch accounts is moving from the left navigation menu to an icon in the top right.

● Revised actions menu
○ A revised actions menu attached to every file and folder emphasizes the most frequently used actions at the top. Toggles for starred and offline are now changed to buttons.

You can download Google Drive from the App Store for free.
