Google Drive gets an updated home page on smartphones

Google has introduced a redesigned Google Drive home page for iOS and Android, which will help users find the file they need much faster.

The Suggested tab will now show users more files, such as what they’ve opened, edited, or shared recently.

The company decided to abandon the large file preview tiles because they were too small to make out anything on them anyway. Instead, files will now be displayed in a list.

The Notifications section will now replace the Activity section, which was recently launched in the web version of the service. There, users will be able to see files that require their attention, for example, when someone has requested access to a document, left a comment, or an action is pending confirmation.

The update will be available to all users over the next few weeks.
