Google Docs app for Android updated, brings offline support and more

Google Docs App Android 1

The Google Docs app for Android has brought in fresh updates which aim to sprinkle the overall user experience with more flexibility and easy utility. To begin with, it finally proffers offline access to documents. Users looking forward to this feature can now take complete advantage of it via the latest upgrade.

Any files saved in Google Docs can be selected and viewed offline, enabling users to dabble in their work even when there is no internet connection. Additionally, these offline files will also be automatically updated when using Wi-Fi. To manually update documents, the ‘Update’ tab featuring in the app’s Offline section can be clicked. Furthermore, the layout for viewing documents on tablets has been improved, for it now facilitates swiping left, right and even flipping between pages. Plus, a slider has been added at the bottom for moving quickly to other pages.

The documents in the Offline segment of the app will be marked with ‘Up to date’, ‘Out of date’ or ‘Not yet available’ designations. As the name suggests, the ones which are tagged as ‘Up to date’ are in sync with their online variants, while the ‘Out of date’ items have been edited online, but not updated offline. The ones marked with ‘Not yet available’ are the documents which haven’t been downloaded offline owing to an irregular or unavailable internet connection.

So users can go ahead and employ the Google Docs App for Android upgrade which now allows them to work from just about anywhere with the new offline feature.
