Starting today, you can use Natural Language Processing (NLP) and other new and improved features in Drive search as you do on Google Search to quickly find files on the web.

First among others, using NLP, you can tell Drive about what you are looking for, and it will then give you the option to click for those specific search results. "Drive NLP will get better with each query," writes google. So keep on searching. ๐Ÿ˜‰

And for your typos, Drive now has a new autocorrect feature that suggests corrections to your misspelled search terms.

In additon, a couple of highly-requested Google Docs features also made their way in this release to help you create your best work:

In Google Docs, you can now easily split your document into multiple columns. To do this just choose "Columns" in the "Format" drop-down menu when you need more formatting options to get your point across.

We know that work happens in all types of file formats.

Additionally, if you open, convert and edit non-Google files in Docs, Sheets and Slides, "a copy of the source file now gets saved." You can view or download the non-Google source file in its original format directly from Revision History in Docs, Sheets and Slides on the web, writes google.

These features will roll out gradually around the globe.
