Update for Google Drive adds support for Files on iOS 11.
Google has just released an update to its Google Drive app. After installing update 4.2017.37510, users with iPhone and iPad running iOS 11 will be able to access their Drive storage from the Files app.
Under the ‘More location’ section in the Files app for iOS 11, you will see a new provider available – Google Drive.
According to Google, the integration with Files also extends to documents uploaded to Google Drive, but opened through the Files app.
With the latest version of the Drive app installed, you can easily access and manage documents and photos stored in Drive just by opening up the Files app on your iOS device. If you have Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides apps installed as well, tapping on any Google document, spreadsheet, or presentation in the Files app will open the app of the associated Google editor. You can also take advantage of new iOS 11 features like dragging and dropping files between apps and folders in the Files App.
