An update to the Google Docs and Slides apps finally allow you to insert an image when working with these apps on your phone or tablet.

It was a big missing piece in Google’s productivity suite. With the update, you can now grab a picture from your camera roll or take a new photo with the camera in both Slides and Docs.

Slides allows you to double-tap the image and crop it down to where you want it to fit on the screen.

You can now insert and crop images right in Google Slides.

Google says these features will still function if you’re working with a file offline.

To round out the updates to its suite, Sheets is getting some bug fixes and stability improvements. Google Drive can now view form data in a PDF and includes some interface tweaks.

You can wait for these updates to hit your device or grab them now from APK Mirror

The story behind the story: Google’s productivity apps are playing catch-up with some features now that Microsoft has its own suite of Office for Android. We found Microsoft’s alternative a worthy competitor in our Google Docs vs. Microsoft Office comparison.
