Folder sharing in shared drives now generally available


This is one of the most wanted features where you can share folders in shared drives. 

Shared drives allow teams and organisations to preserve data , access them and collaborate. With this release, you could share a specific folder with other members or update user privileges to allow users to access specific folders on shared drives with extra privileges.

The functionality is available on the web via Drive, Drive API, Drive File Stream
(v. 42 +), and the new iOS Google Drive apps (v. 4.2020.36202 +) and Android
(v. 2.20.321 +). With the upcoming release, it will be accessible via the native file system on ChromeOS.

Considerable features

  1. Commenter role availability - To align shared drive with my drive commenter role will be available.

  2. Manager role required to move folders between shared drives - As stated earlier only the manager role (in both the locations) will be able to move folders between shared drives.

For Admins

This feature will be available for all domains with Shared Drives enabled.

End users

This feature will be available to all users with shared drives.
