Multi-Page Document Scanning Comes to Office Lens for Android

A major update to Office Lens for Android adds a key feature that users have been clamoring for: The ability to scan multi-page documents and save them as a single document.

If that functionality sounds familiar, it’s because Microsoft previously added it to OneDrive for iOS. (Yes, you can scan documents from OneDrive too.) So even though Office Lens for iOS doesn’t (yet) have this feature, it will soon. And you can use OneDrive in the meantime.

Here’s what’s new in Office Lens for Android.

Scan multiple images. Our top requested feature is here. Scan more than one image and save them all as single PDF, a Word or PowerPoint file on OneDrive, or simply export them as images to the same OneNote location.

Get more from Office Lens. Create a free account to unlock premium features such as free 5 GB OneDrive storage, text extraction from image (OCR) and the ability to save in multiple file formats.

You can download Office Lens for Android from the Google Play Store. This app is highly recommended; I consider it a must-have on any mobile platform.
