  2. Launch the Google Drive app and sign in.
  3. Launch Acrobat Reader.
  4. Open the Location Chooser by tapping the blue text in the top bar.

Hi,

Google Drive for iPad/iPhone has the built-in PDF preview capability.  You can simply tap a PDF document to open and view it inside the Google Drive app.  However, please note that Google Drive's PDF preview does not fully support comments/annotations and forms fields.

To open a PDF document in Acrobat Reader for iOS (going from Google Drive to Acrobat Reader for iOS)

  1. In the Google Drive app on your iPad, tap a PDF document to open it in the previewer.
  2. Tap the Overflow menu icon in the upper-right corner.

  3. Select "Send a copy" from the menu.

  4. Tap "Open in".

  5. Tap "Copy to Adobe Acrobat".

Your PDF document will be opened in Acrobat Reader for iOS.


Does it work for you?  Please let us know if you have further questions.

Thank you.

This "send a copy" feature is not available on my windows PC running Google Chrome. Will Adobe build out a Google App, like DocHub has? My team uses Google Drive often and we currently have dual subscriptions with both DocHub and Adobe Acrobat Pro. Would prefer to just utilize Adobe in the capacity in which we use DocHub across my sales team so we do not need to have 2 paid PDF edit and esign platforms. Only reason we are holding onto Adobe at the moment is due to the API for contract signatures in our proprietary platform. Give us a google App before Doc Hub gives us an API please.

nater8296569 , when you say "build out a Google App", are you asking for a way to access your documents that are stored on Google Drive from Acrobat Reader for iPhone/iPad?

Ideally, it would be great to add Google Drive as a storage account, much like we currently can for Box, Dropbox, OneDrive, and SharePoint Site.

FYI, there are other PDF read/annotate solutions that do this (some even offer collation features). I would prefer to use a solution from Adobe, whom I trust, but I can only do that if you actually have a decently workable solution.

Hi Greg97365​,

Would you please make sure that the Google Drive app is installed on your iPhone?

The feature is supported on both iPhone and iPad.

Thank you.

P.S.  The screenshots above were taken from an iPhone.

It appears that Adobe has added the ability to connect your Google Drive account (in Oct 2018), however, it doesn't connect to our org's Team Drives. Adobe, please add Team Drive's access. Thanks.
