Digilocker, the cloud storage platform for all Government issued official documents in India is soon going to be integrated into the Files app in Android. Now Digilocker users on Android can directly access official government issued documents, straight from their Files app.
Google made the announcement during the annual Google for India event. “We expect that DigiLocker’s integration and partnership on Android will drive smoother and ubiquitous access to digitised documents in a safe and secure manner for all our users” Abhishek Singh, President and CEO, NeGD and MyGov, MD and CEO, Digital India Corporation, said in a statement.
Google will make the Digilocker issued files accessible only with a secure password, inside the Files app.
DigiLocker has more than 137 million registered users who have issued more than 5.6 billion documents to date.
Google is yet to disclose the date of launch and support for iOS.
