There's a decent chance that when you're accessing a document from a smartphone, you're not actually trying to make edits. You just want to take a look at what's there. So the latest update to Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides improves precisely this experience.

What's New

Now when you click on a document and start scrolling down, the app goes full-screen (minus the dimmed notification bar) and the toolbars disappear.

 

 A floating action button with a pencil inside hovers at the bottom right corner that you can tap to edit documents. Alternatively, you can double tap anywhere on the page just as before.

Download

Each APK is signed by Google and upgrades your existing app. The cryptographic signature guarantees that the file is safe to install and was not tampered with in any way. Rather than wait for Google to push this download to your devices, which can take days, download and install it just like any other APK.
