Google PDF ViewerGoogle has released a standalone PDF reader app in the Play Store for Android users. Dubbed as Google PDF Viewer, the app doesn’t bring any new functionality that isn’t already available on your Android device if it packs Google Drive app. Google has primarily launched the app for Android for Work users, who don’t want to deploy Google Drive Android version in their enterprise set-up and need a small app that can offer PDF viewing capabilities.
