Google continues its workout by updating its Drive app, which includes a UI change and a bunch of new features. First up, we have Google moving from the "holo dark" theme to "holo light", which will bring Drive to the same look as Gmail.




Next up we have a new bottom action bar which provides Drive users with the ability to upload, create and scan, and more. The "create" option lets you see a familiar menu where you can make new folders, documents and spreadsheets. The new bottom action bar replaces the old + button in the top action bar, and it also hides when you scroll down your documents list, freeing up precious pixels.


There's some new features to bed found in the spreadsheet editor, which lets you merge and lock cells, as well as new options to improve your scans. There are the usual bug fixes and small improvements here and there. You can grab Google Drive here, if your device hasn't already updated.
