Go Paperless with the New Scan Button in Files by Google

For all you casual hoarders and receipt stuffers out there, Google has a streamlined new way to finally go paperless. The company’s Files by Google app, which helps you manage and clear out storage on your devices, is rolling out a nifty scan button to make digitizing documents a total breeze.

With the new document scanner feature, you can quickly turn any paper file into a crisp PDF with just a couple taps. Just fire up the Files app, hit that new scan button, line up your document, and let Google’s fancy machine learning do all the hard work. Before you know it, your math homework, grocery lists, and chaotic piles of miscellaneous paper clutter will be cataloged and organized in tidy digital form.

One-Tap Scanning Simplicity

The scanned documents will be automatically saved as PDFs under a new “Scanned” collection within the Files app’s “Documents” section. So staying on top of your rising tower of paperwork is just a matter of tapping the right folder.

The on-device document scanner uses Google’s latest computer vision smarts to detect documents, crop them perfectly, and enhance every scan for maximum clarity. It’s basically like having a industrial sheet-feed scanner implanted right into your smartphone camera.

The new scan button is rolling out now to Pixel devices, with likely wider availability across Android phones to follow. Anyone ready to kick off a refreshing new era of effortless paper decluttering? Just look for that scanner icon and leave the rest to Google.
