Google announced at its European Google Atmosphere event that it will be bringing mobile editing capabilities to Google Docs on the iPad and Android.Soon, users will be able to collaborate and co-edit documents and files from a range of devices.
The announcement, posted by Google Enterprise President Dave Girouard on an official blog:
““We’re launching new cloud-powered capabilities: two-step verification to help enhance security and soon, mobile editing in Google Docs on Android and the iPad.”
“We demonstrated new mobile editing capabilities for Google Docs on the Android platform and the iPad.In the next few weeks, co-workers around the world will soon be able to co-edit files simultaneously from an even wider array of devices,” Google’s Dave Girouard, president of Google Enterprise, said.”
Currently, third-party apps like QuickOffice let you edit your Google Docs files. This works really well, especially on the iPad, but for many users a native Google Docs editing component will be greatly appreciated.
Both of these moves signify that Google is working towards becoming a bigger player in the cloud services space that is currently occupied by companies like Salesforce.com, SugarCRM, Box.net and SharePoint online.
