Alphabet (GOOGL) Updates Google Drive With Shortcut Options

·3-min read

Alphabet’s GOOGL division Google is leaving no stone unturned to advance its file storage and synchronization service, Google Drive, by bringing innovative capabilities.

Reportedly, Google Drive on the web is getting updated with the required keyboard shortcuts to help users seamlessly manage their files.

Notably, Ctrl + C, Ctrl + X and Ctrl + V shortcuts will work on Google Drive without the need to always use the right-click menu. Moreover, users can open a highlighted file or folder in a new tab using the shortcut Ctrl + Enter.

Per the report, Google Drive’s keyboard shortcuts only work in Google Chrome.

The recent features will be available to customers using Google Workspace and those with personal Google Accounts using Google Chrome.

With the latest capabilities, Alphabet strives to provide an enhanced experience to Google Drive users. This is expected to boost the adoption rate of Google Drive in the days ahead.

Strength in Google Workspace

Alphabet’s growing efforts toward Google Drive continue to strengthen the Google Workspace. This, in turn, is driving GOOGL’s momentum across organizations, demanding productivity and collaboration tools.

Apart from the latest initiative, GOOGL recently introduced a feature at Gmail that allows users to pause mobile notifications when they are active on the desktop client.

Alphabet also launched advanced features in Google Contacts, whereby the software will help Workspace users know their colleagues better.

In addition, GOOGL unveiled a new feature named Time Insights in Google Calendar to provide a customized experience and help paid Workspace users efficiently manage their time.
