YouTube, Currents, and Drive all receive updates


In a strong second push of more updates to Google apps, YouTube, Currents, and Google Drive, all for Android, have been updated.

The former includes a very nice user interface refresh, the ability to pre-load videos while your device is on WiFi and charging, view your watch history across devices, and more.

Currents has gotten a bit of an upgrade in the UI department alongside a top-oriented navigation bar that can be hidden (and brought back into view with a tap), moved the Library/trending toggle to the navigation bar, and more.

Finally, Google Drive wasn’t going to be outshined. You can now upload and download ALL file types, an easier way to select contacts to share with, faster navigation of folders while a sync operation is taking place, and so much more.

If you want to see the full list of changes for each individual app, be sure to find their pages in the Google Play Store. YouTube is here, Currents is here, and Drive is here. Have fun!

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Hmm, I clicked on the YouTube one, and it seems I’m already up to date.

  2. The only thing that would move me to drive is if they matched or beat the 8.5gb dropbox gives me free. and I know I’m on the low end. there’s some people that have earned and accumulated over 30gbs with contests and referrals etc.

    1. Thanks to HTC Sense 4.0, i got a total of 41GB of storage… Still dont think to move to gDrive…

    2. Before drive came out, I knew I needed more Google Docs/Gmail/Picasa Space. So, if you upgrade your overall Google account storage, under some complicated settings page, you can pay $20.00 a year, for 80 gigabytes. looking through the other options, it seemed to have the best value/least ridiculousness.

  3. Currently Google drive on PC is no good
    for me. I want to sync my folder on my C drive & on my NAS drive but
    all Drive lets you do if move files & folder on to the Drive folder on your
    C drive.
    Let us right click on a folder & choose Sync with Drive as well as
    the usual drive folder, or like picasa a program that lets you choose
    which folders to sync then it will be usefull for me.
