Google recently announced a brand new Create Menu for Google Drive. This update has a slightly different appearance, but the biggest takeaway is the improved integration with Drive-enabled apps.
While the old Drive Create Menu only allowed users to create one of Google’s own apps. the new menu makes your 3rd-party apps much more visible and accessible. It will be interesting to see if this change increases the popularity of these apps, which would be great news for developers.
Users also have the ability to open a file in a number of formats. For example, an image file can be opened with the standard Google Drive viewer, or it can be opened with any number of the photo-editing apps available.
