It’s been nearly 6 months since Google first released their Docs app for Android. In that time, the development team behind the project has been hard at work introducing new features, improving cross-platform compatibility and adding support for some 45 new languages. Today, Google has taken a brief moment to announce some of the changes made to the Google Docs app for Android on the official Docs blog.
When Google Docs for Android first launched, the app was only compatible with the English language. With the additional language support added to the app today, Google Docs for Android now works in a total of 46 different languages. This is a huge step forward for Google and international Docs users. Users from all over the world can now easily manage their Google Docs account from their Android device of choice without ever having to leave Google’s optimized app.
Also announced in the update today are improved open and send functions, along with a new feature known as Web Clipboard. By using the camera icon on the Google Docs for Android widget, users can snap a picture, choose “Send to Web Clipboard” and access that content from their Google Docs account on any web-connected PC.
While the need for a tablet-optimized version of Docs and enhanced offline compatibility has yet to be addressed, updated language support and the Web Clipboard are welcome additions to the Android app. Do you use Google Docs? Will you now that it supports more languages?
