Google is working to increase the productivity of G Suite users through a constant software change. In a recent update, Google added new features to do-so, Sheets, and Slides apps to make it easier for you to get the job done on your smartphone.
These changes are primarily visual, including link preview features and a new comment interface. Dark mode is also mentioned in the update log, although the feature was announced last month.
Update the log:
A preview of the link in Docs.
Click on a link in Docs and now you’ll see a dynamic card so that users can view the link information without leaving the app. This information includes thumbnails of network links, titles, and descriptions, as well as the latest activity and owner information for Drive files. The feature is now available on iOS and will be available on Android in a few weeks.
Improved comment navigation for Docs, Sheets, and Slides.
You no longer have to select each comment separately from the document, and you can now click the comment in a unified interface. Available now on Android and will log in to iOS in the coming months.
Vertical navigation in Slides.
You can now scroll through your slides as vertical streams in Slides, using pinching and zooming to check the content. This change should make it easier and faster for you to view your presentation on the go, making it ideal for last-minute preparation. It will be available on Android in the coming weeks and on iOS in the coming months.
Smart Compose in Docs
This feature was introduced after some people hated it, some people liked it. But for fans of the feature, Smart Compose can certainly save time. The feature will be available for Android and iOS in the coming weeks.
Editing Microsoft Office documents in Docs, Sheets, and Slides.
Last year, Google made it easier for G Suite users to edit Microsoft Office files on web pages. Now, the same features will appear in mobile Docs, Sheets and Slides apps on Android in the coming weeks, and in iOS apps “later this year.”
