How to scan documents on your phone using Google Drive

You can access the scanning tool from the Google Drive landing page (Homepage).

When you start a new project on Google Drive for Android, you can choose to scan a document using your smartphone's camera.

Once the documents are scanned, there is no need to export them as Google Drive is a cloud storage tool.

Open the Google Drive app on your Android device.

Scanning a document using Google Drive

Press the Scan button. Next, allow the drive to access the camera.

As soon as you take a picture of your document, tap the checkmark on it.

Tap on Save button. Next, press the Save button once again after selecting the file name, Google account and location.

The scanned document will be automatically converted into a PDF.
