Google Docs updated for Android
Google Docs for Android has been updated as demonstrated above in the video, now allowing for live collaboration just as they offer in the desktop version, so now you will see updates in real time as others you have shared a document with type from their tablet, phone or computer. Editing documents on the go has been a priority for Google and the new release makes the mobile experience considerably better.
Vadim Gerasimov, Software Engineer at Google said, “We also updated the interface to make it easier to work with your documents on the go. For example, you can pinch to zoom and focus on a specific paragraph or see the whole document at a glance. We also added rich text formatting so you can do things like create a quick bullet list, add color to your documents, or just bold something important.”
This update is so much more useful than simply editing a Best Man speech, this can be used to edit documents in the field from blog articles you are finalizing and sending to your assistant for formatting, or perhaps a punch list wherein all team members are checking off items in real time from their mobile devices, or perhaps an inventory list that you are adding to from your Android while in the field.
It’s a time saver and because it is free, Google Docs is part of a wildly popular Google suite of tools that businesses are flocking to, and the mobile experience is continually improving.
