If you turn on notifications, you get direct messages about Google Drive events, such as:

  • A new file or folder that’s shared with you.
  • A new comment or action item that mentions you or is assigned to you.
    • You can reply to comments directly from the Google Drive app for Chat. For example, to mention a colleague, type “@” followed by their name or email address.
