In 2012 when Google rebranded Google Docs as Google Drive, they also changed “Shared with Me” to “Incoming” – much to the dismay of many, many customers.

As a result of this outcry (first world problem), Google has changed it back to “Shared with me”.

The “Shared with Me” link in the left-hand side navigation lets you see the files and folders that other people have shared with you, starting with the most recent.
