Google Docs app for Android updated: Add pictures to docs from your gallery and more

We love the Google Docs for Android app. The word-process-from-your-phone app just got a little bit better thanks to a recent update. You can now add images to your docs, like you can with the equally orsum Evernote app.

You can upload new snaps by taking new picture via the Docs widget, and select Send to Web Clipboard. Then, from your computer, simply click the Web Clipboard icon top left (next to the text format drop down) and your image will be magically pasted into the Doc.

Alternatively, you can simply tap the Create New icon from within the app, and you’ll see the options to upload a picture from the gallery or take a new photo.

Other improvements to the app include support for 45 new languages including German. We’ve not found a way to manually switch languages from within the app’s settings. Presumably if you’re logging in from another country, the language will change accordingly.

Another neat change is the ability to send Docs as email attachments; when viewing your list of documents, simply tap on the arrow icon to bring up the Send option. As well as being to attach Docs to an email, you’ve now got the option to send stuff via Dropbox and Evernote too.
