Google Docs is now available for editing in a mobile browser with support for the Android and the iPad.
The support is part of the new editor for Google Docs that was announced earlier this year.
Edits that are made in a Google Doc from a mobile device will also appear to someone collaborating on the document from a browser on a laptop or desktop.
One of the cooler features is the ability to enter text using your voice as demonstrated in this overview:
To get started: visit docs.google.com in a browser on a supported device and select the document you want to edit. Press the Edit button to switch to the mobile editor.
A Google spokesperson says the mobile editor will roll out to English-language users around the world on Android with Froyo (version 2.2) and on iOS devices (version 3.0+) including the iPad. Support for other languages will be added soon.
We reported on the new Google Docs features earlier this year. At the time, Google said it would be providing support for mobile editing.
The new Google Docs provide a set of capabilities that show the level of advancement in Web-based and mobile editing capabilities. These features will only get more sophisticated as Microsoft also steps up its efforts in bringing its products online.
