Google Drive’s “search chips” are designed to make it easier to find files unroll to all workspace users, The edge has called. First introduced in beta late last year, the new feature allows you to limit results by file type, modification date, location, people involved, and other parameters.
Luckily, using the new feature is pretty easy. When you run a normal search, you’ll see a list of six chips with drop-down menus: Location, File Type, People, Last Modified, Title Only, and To Do. Clicking or tapping on any of these will filter your search results by a relevant person in the case of people or a date (Today, Last 7 Days, Last 30 Days, etc.).
Google Drive already offered a way to filter files, but hid that feature behind a submenu in the right-most icon of the search bar — so many users were probably unaware of its existence. The search chips are therefore more of a (welcome) UI improvement than an entirely new feature.
