    Google has updated its Drive app on iOS with a handful of notable new features and enhancements. The update brings the app to version 4.4 and adds 3D Touch support for iOS users, among other features. Here's how the official changelog looks like:
    • Receive notifications when new files are shared with you
    • Use 3D Touch to open recent files, upload photos or search
    • Find and open files in Drive from iOS Search
    Thus, after you download the update, by pushing with more pressure on the Drive app icon you will see two options, one to quickly upload photos and another to quickly search the contents of your Drive.

    Next, the update adds the ability to receive push notifications whenever a new file is shared with you. Also, searching through Spotlight in iOS will now bring up files you have saved in Drive, allowing you to easily jump to it without first having to open to open the app.

    Version 4.4 of Google Drive for iOS also adds support for Split View and Slide Over multitasking on iPad and iPad Pro. The latest version of Drive is available now on the App Store for free by following the link at the end.
