XDA Developers has seen in the source code of version 2.20.441.06.40 of the Google Drive app for Android that tests are currently being carried out for introduce support for encrypted files in the app. It is not known at the moment if this function will be launched only in the Android app or if it will also be available in the browser version of this tool.
Today new data about this function has been revealed. For example, it has been seen that the application will allow users encrypt documents that are stored on the device. They will be those documents that are marked as offline, although if this setting is changed, all copies of the device will be deleted.
For now, some doubts have not been resolved, about whether the decryption will take place in Google’s own cloud or the date to be entered this function in Google Drive. At least you can see that the company is testing this feature and the fact that some screenshots of that interface have been seen suggests that it will arrive soon.
