Google Drive update brings new 1×1 Quick Scan widget

drive_logo

Google has released an update to the Google Drive app for Android which brings some small improvements, but a cool new shortcut to its document scanning function.

Google Drive 1.2.536.27 has been pushed out to the Play Store overnight and should be hitting your device soon, and while it includes the obligatory bug-fixes, it also includes an update for animated GIF support, and a shortcut which you can place on your home-screen which directly launches Google Drive’s Document Scanner.

With the scanner, you can scan a receipt, invoice, or whatever you like and instantly upload it to Google Drive to deal with later. For those who’ve not tried it, it works rather well, converting documents placed on your desk (for example) to a scanned image with the correct perspective. It’s not perfect, but it does a fairly reasonable job.

Check it out on the Play Store today (you might need to check for updates).

I scan all my receipts into Drive using the phone app, so this sounds like a handy addition 🙂

Camscanner is one of my favorite apps. It not only scans and uploads to cloud but it also does a superb job of cleaning up the image.
