Google Adds Collaboration Features to Google Docs for Android

Mountain View based software powerhouse Google has announced that the Android variant of Google Docs now allows users to collaborate on documents.

The updated app now allows a user to edit and see the changes made by the other users on their android handset in real time, the company announced on a proud note.

"We want to give everyone the chance to be productive no matter where they are, so today we're releasing a new update to the Google Docs app for Android," Google software engineer Vadim Gerasimov wrote in a blog post.

"We've brought the collaborative experience from Google Docs on the desktop to your Android device," he added. Not just that, the company also revamped the user interface of the massively popular application with added functionalities such as pinch zooming that enables users to focus on a certain segment of the document.

A previous update dished out by the company earlier in the month made it possible for users to access their documents even in offline mode. To unveil the changes introduced by this latest update, the company has also come up with a teaser video that explains the different newly added aspects in the application.
