Preview Google Drive Items in Hangouts Chat
Google Hangouts has become even more collaborative. Now users are able to quickly share drive files directly from the chat window. The current trigger for Hangouts Drive collaboration is the Google Drive App, which is being phased out December 15th.
To see the new Preview feature start by opening a chat , in the bottom right of the chat window click on the new Drive sharing logo . This will trigger a Google Drive window to pop-up.
You will have three ways to share content; browsing My Drive contents or those shared with you as Incoming or simply upload any other content.
