New File Notifications in the Google Drive Mobile Apps

The Google Drive Android and iOS apps have come a long way in the last year. The latest update to the apps makes it easier to know when someone has shared a file with you. Now when someone shares a file with you, you will receive a notification on your Android or iOS device. You will not need to check your email to see these notifications.

Just like the latest version of the Google Drive mobile apps makes it easier to know when something is share with you, it is now easier to know when someone has requested access to a file. Whenever someone requests access to one of your Google Drive files you will receive a notification on your iOS or Android device. And you can grant or deny access with just one tap on your device.

Applications for Education
These updates won't drastically change the way that you and your students use the Google Drive mobile apps, they simply make it easier to know when files are shared. Receiving those notifications could be helpful to students working on group projects. Likewise, receiving those notifications could be convenient for teachers and administrators working on time-sensitive documents or presentations.
