Google has announced an update that brings a better and faster search experience to Drive. Users will now have the following ways to find files:
  • Narrow your search to a file type from the search box on Android, iOS, and the web.
  • Open advanced search instantly from the search box.
  • Access recent files or search Drive from the home screen using 3D Touch on iOS. 
  • Search Drive using the iOS search bar without opening the Drive app.
Some behind the scenes improvements include:
  • Search for shared files by file owner using their name or email address.
  • Use advanced search option including: date file was modified, words in file, who shared the file.
We expect to see the new Google Drive search experience in the UMICH domain within the next week. For more information, see Better search experience in Google Drive
