You may now perform basic edits on PDF files without leaving Google Chrome. Thanks to Adobe's new Acrobat PDF Reader Extension for Chrome, users can easily add comments, highlights or drawings to PDF files in the browser window using a dropdown pane.

Besides that, you can also e-sign documents without the need to download extra tools and quickly fill out forms manually or using pre-fill information. There are also functions like rotate, delete, or reorder PDF pages to optimise viewing and printing, transform a PDF to a Microsoft Word document and retain formatting. However, not every feature will be available if you don't own an Acrobat Pro DC subscription, such as converting the file to a Word document.

Adobe has been working closely with Google on the integration between Creative Cloud and Google Workspace. Therefore, it's not that surprising to see the popular Adobe PDF editing tool finally arrive on one of Google's most-used applications. Other than this, we should be seeing more exciting collaborations that the two companies will present in the future.
