Google Drive for Android Receives an Update with Document Scanning, File Downloads and Many More

Google Drive mobile app is a great way to access both Google Drive and Google Docs on the go. To make your task much smoother and easier, Google has updated its Google Drive for Android version with a simple and elegant card style layout and added new features like document scanning.

Now, the updated version presents all the Drive files in the app in a clear card-style grid view. Users can easily swipe the files and rapidly view a larger preview to clearly see the content. In addition to that, users can also track their paper documents such as billing statements, receipts and so on.

While the Drive still serves as a cloud storage service, it allows the users to download a copy of their files for offline access. This feature is only compatible with the devices that run on Android version 3.0 or above.

The update also brings a scanning option, which allows the users to take a snapshot of their document. Once you take a snap of your document, the Drive will convert that into a photo for safekeeping. And surprisingly, the Drive can identify the text through your scanned documents with the help of a special OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology, so you can have a plain search to get back any scanned document later.

The editing feature in the Google Sheets has also been enhanced; you can now use varied sizes of fonts and different types of fonts for a spreadsheet and modify the cell lineup and text colors directly from the app.

You can download this beautiful beautiful app from Google Play Store. This app is compatible with the devices that run on Android version 2.1 and above.
