Almost two years after introducing search chips into Gmail, Google has now announced the rollout of supportive filters to Google Drive as well.
Search chips help users filter through results and narrow down searches. As finding files in Drive can sometimes be a challenging task, carrying over the feature from Gmail will prove to be handy for many.
The feature was first introduced in beta in November last year and is now available to all Workspace users on all plans, including G Suit Basic. The updated drop-down menus for search chips will appear right beneath the search bar in Drive.
To access the filters, users can enter keywords in Drive’s search bar and find the six drop-down menus for search chips right below the search bar. Search chips help users narrow down their search results by selecting from a drop-down menu for Location, File Type, People, Last Modified, Title only, and To do.
Before rolling out the filters on a visible bar below Search, Drive offered a few of these search filters within a drop-down tab built right into the search bar. With the update, Google will make the search chips more accessible and visible for users.
