Google Updates Its Mobile Office Apps With Better Security, New Features
Google continued to be the bane of mobile office app developers this week with a series of updates to the Docs, Sheets, and Slides apps for iOS and Android.
In addition to adding support for the iPhone’s fingerprint sensor, Google has also improved support for screen-reading services like TalkBack on Android and VoiceOver on iOS, enabling the visually impaired to better create, edit, and share files.
But most importantly, Google is also adding a slew of new features. For example, the Android apps now support offline printing as well as real-time spell-checking. You can also now add speaker notes to a slideshow in the Slides app, hide rows and columns in spreadsheets, and group shapes in presentations.
