Besides, users can now fill out structured PDF forms within the company’s Google Drive app, which solves a big problem for many. This feature is available for both Android and iOS devices. Google says one can now fill text fields, select options from a dropdown menu, and click checkboxes or radio buttons. After filling out the form, Android users can save their edits as a new revision of the document, or save a copy as well.
“This feature makes it quicker and easier to complete business invoices, event registrations, tax forms and other types of simple forms. This eliminates the need to print, fill-in by hand, and re-upload the document, saving you time,” Google said.
Separately, Google recently added support for bike-sharing stations to its Maps app. This feature will help inform users about docked bike-sharing services near them. Google was reportedly testing this feature in New York City. Now, the company is planning to expand the feature to 23 more cities. The list includes Barcelona, Berlin, Brussels, Budapest, Chicago, London, and Los Angeles among others. The company is reportedly releasing the feature to both Android and iOS platforms.
