The search giant has lately been revamping Google Drive in an effort to make the applications quicker to locate and simpler to open and utilize, while tech rival Apple has been launching new products.
Google is constantly working on the user-friendliness and the convenience when it comes to using Drive.
One of the steps Google took to revamp their free file storage service was to change the names of their 3 most widely-used apps, which are spreadsheets, word processing, and graphical presentations, to ‘sheets’, ‘docs’, and ‘slides’, respectively.
This was done on Tuesday and the said apps are now up for grabs in the Chrome Online Shop. When they are installed, it is directly added as a shortcut in the Chrome browser, or it would open a new tab.
The revamped applications would also be included in the apps directory in the next Chrome System Software update, to be available by mid-November.
Drive serves as one of Google’s many means of letting people in the virtual world of cloud computing and driving them away from physical software and desktops with physical licensing contracts.
The service is equipped with 30 app and document types, some of which are Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop, that with Drive’s help could now be used with only a browser and a stable internet connection.
Google drive could be used on any mobile device or personal computer with access to internet. Free users are able to enjoy up to 5 GB of storage.
