In Google Play we can find dozens of great apps to open and edit PDF documents from the mobile. However, not all of them offer the possibility of fill out forms easily To fix it, Google has updated the Google Drive application for Android, introducing the possibility of fill out PDF document forms from the mobile and in the simplest way possible.
The function has begun to be available since August 22, starting with the users of G Suite accounts. Later, however, reach all Drive users regardless of the type of Google account they use, and on both Android and iOS devices.
Fill out PDF document forms without leaving Google Drive: this is done
First of all, it is necessary to make sure you have installed the latest version of Google Drive available on our device. This is the only requirement necessary to be able to fill out forms through the Google cloud storage app.
Another aspect to consider is that This function is not available on XFA-type forms, nor is it possible, at the moment, to sign documents electronically.. Maybe in the future the application will be updated to include these two useful options.
That said, the process for filling out a document is simple. Among the available functions, the possibility of including enter text, mark checkboxes or select drop-down mens options. To do so, just open a PDF document using Google Drive, and if available, touch the “Fill in form” option which should appear at the bottom of the screen in a floating button.
Thus, if there are text fields appear the virtual keyboard to start writing, or those parts of the document in which it is possible to perform operations will be selected. Ace of simple.
