Google has announced an upgrade to its iOS app that will make collaborating on a document a little friendlier. Starting today, you’ll be able to edit and share files from your iPad or iPhone.
When you’re viewing a document, you can see others who are looking at or editing the document by tapping the Current Viewers button in the top-right corner of the screen. If a collaborator is actively working on it, you will see their changes being made in real time.
Hopefully this will put an end to the long email chains of comments and rewrites on projects. You’ll also be able to upload photos and videos from your device and put all your files into folders.
These features are already available on the Android. New to the Android app is the ability to add and reply to comments, as well to view tables.
In addition, Google made a few tweaks to its presentation feature, which now shows speaker notes and animations, and lets you scroll through the slides from left to right.
In the future, you’ll also be able to collaborate on spreadsheets.
