Starting today, you'll have a couple of new features to make it even easier to download your data.
First, your original folder hierarchy is now maintained if you export files from Google Drive. Gone are the days of looking at the contents of your zip file and wondering which "secret_plans" file is which.
|Your folder hierarchy is preserved.|
Second, you can now pick a single resource within a service to download - for instance, a single Picasa album or top-level folder from Drive - instead of exporting every single file. To try it out, go to the "Choose services" tab and click on "Configure..." once you've added a service that supports this.
These are just a few things that we've been working on lately. Stay tuned for lots of excitement in 2013!

Now Dasher! Now Dancer! Now, Prancer and Vixen! On, Comet! On, Cupid! On, Donner and Blitzen! For Santa’s holiday travel this season, Google Now
is just the prescription.
As you head off this holiday season, the latest update to Google Now makes it even more useful for traveling. Before you even leave your house, Google Now will tell you what the weather will be like at your destination (just in time to make sure you remember to pack those mittens). At the airport, your boarding pass is automatically pulled up, helping you breeze through to the gate (launching shortly for United Airlines, with more to come). And once you've arrived at your destination, Google Now can help you uncover some great activities, by showing you events happening around you, suggesting websites for you to explore as you research things to do, or allowing you to learn more about specific pieces while you’re at a museum (using Google Goggles).
All of this builds on top of some of the other cards designed for travel, like the currency conversion, translation, and flight status cards -- hopefully taking a little bit of the stress out of holiday travel so you can focus on family and fun.
We're also making Voice Search even more powerful: you can find out the name of the song that’s playing (“What’s this song?”), quickly find product info (“Scan this barcode”) and post updates to Google+ simply by using just your voice.
These goodies are waiting for you in the updated Google Search
app, available on Google Play
for devices running Android 4.1, Jelly Bean, or higher.Posted by Baris Gultekin, Product Management Director
