Use the Google Drive bot

You can use the Google Drive bot to get notifications in Hangouts Chat about activity in Drive.

Before you begin

Turn on Google Drive notifications

  • When you install the bot, click or tap Yes at the message to turn on notifications.
  • If you previously turned off notifications:
    1. Send any direct message (such as "hello") to the Google Drive bot.
    2. In the response, click or tap Turn On Notifications.

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

  • A new file or folder has been shared with you
  • A new comment or action item mentions you or is assigned to you
  • Someone has requested access to a file you own
  • You're close to running out of storage

Turn off notifications

To stop getting notifications from Google Drive:

  1. Send any direct message (such as "hello") to the Google Drive bot.
  2. In the response, click or tap Turn Off Notifications.

To turn notifications back on, send another direct message to the Google Drive bot.
