Drive is the best way to connect and browse all your online content from one place, just like you used to do with your computer before.
Until today we had a search by service but no global search. The team has worked relentlessly to provide you with that feature. We call it Universal Search, and it’s awesome!
Now you can search through all your different Google Drive, Dropbox or Box accounts. Type “mp3” for instance and find all the music you have stored online.
The last search is saved in the sidebar so you can go back to its results at anytime.
This feature is available to everyone as of today, and Pro users can search all the additional accounts they have attached to Drive.
Happy joliclouding!Please note that the Universal Search works with the services that have implemented a search feature (Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, MediaFire, Put.io). OneDrive due to API limitations from Microsoft doesn’t let us open content from search results for now. We are working on a solution and we are sorry for the inconvenience.
At Jolicloud we love using CloudApp and Droplr, they are extremely convenient to quickly share files or screenshots to friends and colleagues.
We thought it would be a good idea to bring them into Drive to easily access their content and move any files to another storage service!

Some of you may have noticed last week that we have seriously improved the documents viewing experience in Jolicloud Drive.
Our new Office Web Viewer allows you to more easily manipulate your Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents directly from your browser without leaving Drive.

We have also integrated a new PDF reader that works much better than the previous one.
If you haven’t tried it yet, you can read ebooks saved in your storage services in epub and mobi formats directly in your browser.
All theses updates are already live, we can’t wait to hear your feedback.
Happy reading in Drive!
