New Gmail Update Lets You Save Attachments Straight to Google Drive

Gmail has a new update out now that will let you save attachments directly to Google Drive from within your message.

Google announced news of the update on its official blog and showed off the new feature with an accompanying GIF to show it in action.

There is more than one cool thing about this new update. First, attachments can now bee seen as previews at the bottom of a email. This means instead of just seeing a bunch of file names that you have to download in order to figure out what they are, you can now “preview”. The previews conveniently open up in a separate browser tab as well. This way you see a preview of the files within the message itself. Previewing brings up a full screen view of the file, and you can navigate through several attachments the same way you flip through a slideshow.

Gmail users on smartphones with the iOS and Android operating systems have been enjoying these features for some time already. It’s really nice and refreshing to see it introduced to desktop users as well now.

The bigger deal here though, is that now you can save attachments directly to your google drive. All you do is click on the Google Drive icon that you see when you hover over the attachment and choose where to send it! This is extremely convenient and sure to be a huge help for all gmail users.
