For a less chaotic Google Drive: the categories will come to Android and the web version

  • The official Google application goes up a level with categories
  • Unlike folders, you can join a file to several of these

The Google service where we host our files, i.e. Google Drive , continues to evolve with interesting features like the new document scanning tool . On the other hand, it has had some problems, see the case of the documents shown in the search engine .

Recently, the Mountain View firm conveyed calm with the spam that is reaching the cloud of many users. Now, as we read in Android Authority, it will gain a new ability : organize our files into different categories.

A Google Drive with categories

When it comes to organizing that large drawer that our cloud can become , we have several options. We can use folders, the most logical and natural thing, although the different views of Google Drive also make it easier to locate our files.

However, a new code in the app found by TheSPAndroid suggests that there will be an even simpler way: it is “Categories”, a function that would come with 12 of these predefined. Among these, the following have been sighted :

  • Car
  • Banking
  • Bills
  • Start
  • ID
  • Insurance
  • Doctor
  • Pets
  • School
  • Taxes
  • Trips
  • Job

 

What real difference will there be between these categories and folders? Well, depending on the medium, these can be assigned multiple times. That is, the file in question can only be in one folder but can have several categories assigned to it.

For example, if we upload electricity bills, we can link them to categories such as “Expenses”, “Home”, and “Bills”, making it easier to find them again.

 

This new function will be activated from the “More options” menu (the three dots icon that appears next to the files), where we will see the “Manage categories” option. At the moment, it seems that it will land on Android and iOS mobile apps , although it will also reach the desktop version (on the web).

Of course, it is unknown when it will happen , since these types of functions are seen in advance and must be tested until they work correctly to be deployed to the general public.
