Evernote Updated With Google Drive Integration

Some people completely rely on Evernote in order to take notes and keep track of their tasks. With the new Google Drive integration, Evernote users will now be able to add Docs, Slides and Sheets into notes along with quick search for files stored in their Drive.

A new icon available in the Evernote toolbar will bring up the native Google Drive file picker which comes with features with full sort and search capabilities. Files which are added on to the note include a thumbnail preview, name, as well as last modified date. Earlier, users were only able to view non-descriptive and long Drive URLs. Any change which has been made on Drive – such as the name change -- will be automatically synced over to the user’s notes.
 
Evernote goes on to say that the integration makes complete sense as “more than half of all Evernote users also have a Google Account.” Evernote’s blog posts have provided hints at more collaboration and tighter integration with Google products in the near future.
 
Currently, the Google Drive features in beta and is now available for the web in Chrome as well as on Android app. Other platforms will soon follow. In order to enable it, users need to sign into the Evernote site and then go on to enter their Google account credentials.
 
Erik Wrobel, Chief Product Officer at Evernote, states,
 
"Evernote is where people capture and nurture ideas. This integration with Google Drive helps people cultivate those ideas with rich context.”
 
Alex Vogenthaler, Group Product Manager for Google Drive, states,
 
“Making Drive content available in Evernote was very natural for us. Evernote is a great productivity tool and we want anyone using Drive to have access to their content whenever and wherever they’re trying to get stuff done. That’s the cloud at its best.”
