The Google Photos app is generally a ‘Gallery cum Cloud storage’ app, but it has many other features on its shelf for you. Google recently added a new document crop extension to the Photos app that helps you to crop images of a document into a proper document proportion.

Google Photos ‘Crop document’ is a welcome feature, as the usual rectangle or square crop option won’t help you crop documents in the correct proportion. Also, you don’t need to rely on third-party apps to just cropping documents.
