New Activity Stream in Drive Shows you What's Changed

Google Drive makes editing a document easier because everyone can share files and work together - in real time. But in Drive, it’s tough to track all the changes to your shared files. So effective immediately, you’ll notice a new activity stream in Drive – a single, easy-to-view place to review every action taken on your files and folders.

When you open Google Drive, click the ⓘ button in the top right corner and the activity stream will appear, showing you who has taken action on files and folders in My Drive. You’ll see a rundown of all the edits and comments, moving and removing, renaming, uploading, and sharing and unsharing. 

Google has also made it easier to see who owns a file, who it's shared with, and who can edit it by hovering your cursor over the image icons in the top right corner next to the new activity stream icon.
