You’d be forgiven for thinking that the official Google Docs app for Android does web clipboard, a handy feature allowing you to copy and paste content between Google documents through the cloud. Having recently added vector drawings to web clipboard, the team today announced in a blog post the updated Android app which now supports 45 additional languages and cloud clipboard. This opens up interesting possibilities, like pasting images taken on your Android phone into a Google document on your desktop, without syncing anything.

Just tap the camera icon from the Docs widget on your home screen, snap a photo then select Send to Web Clipboard and press OK. The image gets uploaded to the cloud, ready for pasting by clicking the Web Clipboard icon on a Google document toolbar. Another improvement: The updated Android app, available on Android Market, lets you open your documents with any compatible viewer application or send a doc as an attachment through email or another app on your phone.
