Download Google Docs Update With New Print Preview Feature


As is the case with most Google apps, they are continuously seeing very routine updates with a number of new features rolling through. As a rule, these updates often start to come through on a Wednesday although that is not a guarantee as quite often lately, they have been rolling out far more sporadically. Well, for those who often use the more business focused apps like Google Docs, today is your update day as Google has now confirmed an update rolling out to the Docs app on Android and one which comes with a useful feature. At least for those who still use the print function with their documents.

The short of the new update is a simple yet useful feature, now when you are working on a document in Docs, you will have the option to view how the document will look when printed. In reality, this is not much different to the typical Print Preview most will be used to seeing on desktops and laptops. However, if working from an Android device and in the Doc app, it will make a nice addition. Previously, trying to view how your printouts would look on the app would only show the data as one fluid piece. This update will effectively split the pages up and show how they will look once physically printed. You can see an example of how the new print page layout will look in the image provided by Google below.


Once the update reaches your device, accessing the print layout will be easy enough. The option will be available via the drop down menu. That said, it is worth pointing out that Google have stated that the feature is still in beta and therefore, might not be as smooth as the finished product will be when it hits a final status. As per usual, Google has indicated the update will arrive to the devices in a staggered approach and over the next few days. However, for those who cannot wait, you can download and install the update manually by hitting the link below and downloading the APK.
