Do you want to scan documents with your Android? then this article is just for you

In this article, we’ll go over two methods for scanning documents on an Android phone running Android 11 or higher.



You need Google Drive installed to scan documents with Android. The app generally comes pre-installed on Android devices; if not, you can download it from the Google Play store.

Once you have it installed, follow these steps to scan documents with your phone:

  1. Open Google Drive and tap the symbol.

  2. Under the Create New tab, select Scan.

  3. Position the phone camera over the document and tap the Shutter button when you’re ready to capture the image.

  4. Tap the check mark to keep the scan or the back arrow to retake it.

  5. Tap the + symbol to scan more images, or Save to finish and upload your document to Google Drive. There are also options to crop, scan, rotate the scan, or adjust its color.

  6. When you finish scanning your documents, enter a file name for your new PDF and choose a folder to save it in. Then, select Save.

Available scanner apps include Tiny Scanner, Genius Scan, TurboScan, Microsoft Office Lens, CamScanner, and more, but Adobe Scan has all the basics covered in its free version. It’s easy to navigate and use without much of a learning curve. If you haven’t registered for a free Adobe ID, you will need to set one up to use this app.

Adobe Scan offers a paid in-app subscription to access additional features and options. However, the free version includes enough features to cover the needs of most users.

Follow these steps to scan documents with Adobe Scan:

  1. Open the app and log in with a Google, Facebook, or Adobe ID.

  2. Tap the screen or the shutter button when you’re ready to scan the document. The app finds the borders and takes a picture for you.

  3. Drag the handles to adjust the borders if necessary, then tap Continue.

  4. The app automatically takes more scans if necessary. If you don’t want to do that, tap the scan’s thumbnail to display the editing and saving options. Here, you can rotate it, crop it, change the color, and more. When you’re ready, tap Save PDF in the upper-right corner of the screen to save it.

    Note: After you select Save to PDF, tapping the More icon displays options for the new file. You can choose to save it to Google Drive, copy it to your device, print it, delete it, and more.
