Never miss an update in Google Drive by turning on notifications in Hangouts Chat

Hangouts Chat has lots of great features but this handy tip will help you to never miss a notification or action in Drive.  

To start receiving Drive notifications in Chat:

  • In the top left-hand side click > Find people, rooms and bots
  • Search for Google Drive and select - it will then open up in Chat as a Google Drive Bot
  • You can then choose to turn Drive notifications on (and off if you change your mind)
  • In Chat, you’ll see Open Drive Settings to manage what notifications you’d like to receive
