Evernote and Google Drive Link Up

When I wrote four days ago I expected to see new features in Evernote soon, I did not expect them so fast.

Today Google and Evernote announced a new interface between Google Drive and Evernote's Web and Android clients.

You can now add Drive content to your notes in Evernote.

As the Google blog explains :
Instead of pasting links to files, Drive content added to Evernote will now include thumbnail previews and a rich viewing experience. You can also search Drive from Evernote and any changes to files in Drive will sync automatically with your notes. There’s even a handy icon in the Evernote toolbar to jump right into your Drive.

My version of Evernote Web did not yet have the capability, but in the upper right hand of my web client I had the option to switch to their Beta version.  There I found the Drive icon (see the yellow highlight I put in).

I am sure the Beta version will become everyone's standard version soon.

I'll likely review this more after I've used it a bit.

Update:  I created a How-To Video on this topic:
