After you update the Drive app, if you haven't already downloaded the Google Docs and the Google Sheets apps, you'll be prompted to do so when you try to edit a Google Docs or Google Sheets document — though you can still view documents regardless.Interestingly, though, it seems that we were able to still open and edit native Microsoft and files that were uploaded to Google Drive natively within the Drive app.
