Adobe is excited to announce the release of Liquid Mode for Adobe Acrobat Mobile.

Digital experiences have never been more critical — cutting across all industries and impacting daily work and personal lives. And this has never been more apparent than the demand we’re seeing for our Document Cloud products and services, which have skyrocketed. Adobe Sign usage has risen more than 200 percent, and Acrobat DC monthly active users have more than doubled in 2020, reflecting the growing role PDF plays across all segments of the economy. In fact, we estimate that there are more than 2.5 trillion PDFs in the world today.

Building on this continued momentum, today we’re excited to unveil Liquid Mode — the first step in a multi-year vision to fundamentally change the way people consume digital documents, and how organizations extract document intelligence to gain a competitive advantage. Leveraging the power of Adobe Sensei — our cutting-edge AI framework — to understand the structure of PDFs, we have begun to reimagine how people read and interact with digital documents, starting with reinventing mobile productivity beyond the 8.5x11 page.

Liquid Mode is built on top of the rich capabilities of PDF, including the semantics of Tagged PDF.  Adobe continues to partner with the PDF Association to evolve PDF, working through groups such as the Next Generation PDF TWG, PDF/UA TWG and the newly founded PDF Reuse TWG.
