As of now, the Files by Google app is getting a document scanning feature similar to Google Drive. The new functionality lets you digitise your documents instantly and convert them into PDF files with ease.

According to the latest news, you won’t need to install a new version of the app to get this feature as it seems to be part of a server-side update.

As soon as the Files application is opened, there is now a “Scan” button in the bottom right corner of the Files app. By tapping on the Scan button, you can start scanning your documents. At the moment, the Files app offers two modes of capturing: auto and manual.

To capture your documents, you can now choose to auto-capture or manually define the scan area. In the next step, you will be able to edit the scanned document by cropping, rotating, cleaning it, and applying filters. Moreover, the app allows you to merge multiple scans into a single document if you so wish.
