Google Drive introduces activity streams to help you monitor your files

Google Drive introduces activity streams to help you monitor your files

Share this story

The Google Drive team said today that it is rolling out an activity stream to help you monitor changes to your files and folders. A new ⓘ button that appears at the top right corner of the screen gives you access to the stream, which notes actions taken on files and folders in your Drive, and who took them. Edits, comments, new files, changed file names and more will all now appear inside the stream.

The idea is nothing new — Dropbox and Box have offered similar activity streams for quite some time — but it will likely be welcome news to anyone who collaborates using Drive.
