Google has today rolled out a new update to its Google Drive application for Android which has brought with it a number of new features, one of which allows you to now use your smartphone as a document scanner to save items directly to Google Drive.
The new Google Drive scanning features enabled users to Simply click ‘Scan’ from the ‘Add New’ menu, snap a photo of your document, and Google Drive will then transform the document into a PDF and store it in the cloud for you.
Google has also enabled Google Drive with Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, allowing you to easily search for the documents at a later date if required. Google explains:
“No more frantic scrambling through drawers looking for a receipt or digging through your pockets to find that business card — just scan, upload and search in Drive.”
