Google Drive’s web interface gets updated with better file downloads, and more!

 

Google Drive is getting some improvements today. The update will affect its web interface. Even if you’re primarily using Drive on Android, you’ll end up visiting in the browser on occasion. When you do, you’ll see a refined User Interface and much better file downloads.

Here’s what Google says is coming in the update:

– You can now compress and download Drive items into multiple 2GB zip files. Files have an improved name structure, for example: drive-download-20160516T125832Z.zip for the first file and drive-download-20160516T125832Z-2.zip for subsequent archives.

-Better Google Forms handling.

-Empty folders are now included in the zip.

The 2GB size limit on large downloads was a real pain if you needed to grab a lot of files. Now, Drive will split downloads into multiple archives. You’ll also get empty folders included when you download an entire directory, thus preserving the hierarchy you’ve set up.
