Google announced today that an update rolling out to its Google Drive iOS app will allow users to upload files from other apps as well as access custom made maps through Google’s My Maps feature.

The ability to upload files from other apps into Drive is limited to iOS 8 users, and the Google My Maps integration is limited to viewing and sharing the custom maps currently.

For creating custom maps with Google My Maps, you’ll still need the desktop app. Earlier this month Google integrated the My Maps custom maps creation tool into the web version of Drive.

The updated Google Drive app for iPhone and iPad, version 3.4.0, is available on the App Store now.

What’s New in Version 3.4.0

• Upload files to Drive from other sources (iOS 8 only) • Bug fixes and performance improvements
