Google is working on making it easier to find files in Drive.

Google Drive is getting ready to beta test new search filters, which should make it easier to discover the exact file you’re looking for. The addition, dubbed “search chips,” adds a line of filters to the top of the Drive interface, allowing you to narrow your search by file type, last modification date, or which other users are linked to a certain file.
There are some search filtering options in Google Drive already, but they’re minimal and hidden in a submenu in the search bar. The new search chips, on the other hand, are prominently displayed and appear to give a greater range of filtering choices. Gmail launched a similar function early last year.
Google is encouraging interested consumers to this sign-up form if they want to check out the new Drive search chips beta. All Google Workspace users, including G Suite Basic and Business clients, will soon have access to search chips.
