Google has started testing new features for managing folders and content on shared disks, allowing users' access to be easily modified. Until now, the service has allowed participants' permissions to be limited to the level of access they were on.
Now available in beta for users of G Suite, the new functions will allow not only a specific folder to be shared, but also the modification of the level of user access within shared disks.
Google even exemplified who would benefit from the update, including marketing departments that need to share promotional material with other agencies, sales departments with regional teams and even users who are organizing events, allowing specific content to be shared with their respective teams.
Unfortunately, users with personal accounts and subscribers to the basic G Suite plan will not be awarded the new features, which will only reach the G Suite Business, G Suite Enterprise, G Suite for Education, G Suite Enterprise for Education and G Suite for Nonprofits plans .
The last major update released for the storage service arrived at the beginning of the month, offering owners of iPhones and iPads the possibility to use Face ID and Touch ID to block the saved contents. In addition, the search giant last month updated the Drive document scanner, which now aligns with other company applications with the adoption of Material Design.
