Four Google Apps Updates You Might Have Missed This Week

Even for someone like me who spends many hours working in Google Apps every week, it can be hard to keep up with all of the updates that Google pushes. If you feel the same way, here's a quick round-up of updates to services available within your Google account.

1. Improved search in Google Drive.
The updated search tool in Google Drive will give you direct access to advanced search features. The advanced search features will let you refine your search by file type, date of file modification, who the file was shared with, and according to who shared a file with you. You can even search by email address to find a file that was shared with you.

2. New ways to add reminders to Google Calendar.
If you have updated the Google Calendar app on your iOS or Android device, you should now see a red "+" button. Tap that button to add a reminder to your calendar.

3. Drag and drop pictures into Blogger posts.

4. Collaborate on photo albums in Google Photos.
To collaborate on an album simply create your album then share the link to your album much like you would do with a Google Document.
