Google Docs for Android gets updated

A few months back, Google had introduced Google Docs app for its Android users. The app allowed users to create documents and access them directly using the app on their smartphone, without having to depend on the mobile browser to do so. Team Google's now out with an update already.

According to a blogpost by Tobias Thierer, Software Engineer, Google, the update will enhance features on the web clipboard, as well as in the language support of the app. Users, starting from today will be able to click pictures on their smartphone, and insert the same into their word document using the web clipboard. All they have to do is tap the camera icon on the Docs widget loaded on their smartphone. Once there, all that the user needs to do is click the required image, and select 'send to web clipboard' and press 'OK'. To paste the image on the working document, click 'web clipboard' icon on the document, and paste the right image.

The new, updated Google Docs for Android application is being touted to have better open and send options. But, apparently, the best in the list is being saved for the last. Google Docs for Android, in its latest avatar would be accessible now in 46 languages i.e. 45 additions to the original single language support. All this in addition to creating, viewing and editing documents.
