Get More Search Help in Google Drive

google_drive_logo_3963

Google Drive got some useful improvements this week. It added spelling correction while typing in the search words and natural language processing (NLP).

NLP basically means you can search like you talk. You can say something like “open my project paper from last week” and Drive will search for the files that fit these criteria. Cool thing is that Drive will learn your queries, so search gets better over time.

It’s a big surprising that it took a while to get spelling check in the search. Drive will now autocorrect misspelled words and suggest corrections. You have seen this at work; Google search itself has this capability, and now you can use it within Drive.

I like Dropbox a lot, but Drive and, now with Windows 10, OneDrive are becoming my favorites.
