Updated Google Docs for Android Brings Collaboration, Real Time Updates

by Brandon Russell | February 22, 2012

Google announced on Wednesday the company is bringing its collaborative Google Docs desktop experience to the mobile space. You can now edit important documents no matter where you are, be it air, sea or land, and see the changes being made from others in real time. In an increasingly mobile world, this sort of accessibility can make all the difference.

The new update for the Google Docs app for Android promises to introduce “real time [updates] as others type on their computers, tablets and phones, and you can just tap the document to join in.” In addition, the UI has been tweaked to include pinch-to-zoom and rich text formatting for a more robust word processing experience.

Check out the video to see the update in action for yourself.
