Google Drive Begins Introducing Tablet Redesign

Google started to launch a large-screen redesign of Google Drive with a navigation rail to help Android tablet users complete their work.

It was announced on the official Workspace Updates blog those with workspace accounts picked for “Rapid Release” should soon have a new look for Google Drive on Android tablets. And in the new rolling out from Google, replacing the bottom navigation bar with a side-mounted navigation rail is the most considerable change.

The rail now comprises “+” FAB for adding new files and folders Along with the customary tabs (Home, Starred, Shared, and Files) and a button to expand or collapse the drawer. As part of the change, buttons for help, settings, and your profile have been included in the upper-right corner, and the top search bar no longer holds the entire screen. The tabs for “Suggested” files and “Notifications” now occupy less room under the search bar.

In general, this new Google Drive layout seems well suited to utilizing the extra-screen real estate offered by an Android tablet. In Google’s side-by-side illustration, more separate files and controls can be visible on the screen while maintaining reasonable clutter.

This newer tablet version of Google Drive must be available for more Android users launching on April 3rd for those not selected in Rapid Release.

Moreover, the upgrade arrives in Google Drive, sheets, and slides web applications. All sections are getting another layer of paint through Material You. Google has continued adding notable design work into its man workspace apps, specifically focusing on larger screens.
