Google is remodeling its suite of collaborative office products that include Gmail, Drive, and Calendar, aiming to better integrate the platform and redesign some of its most recognized logos. Rebranding G Suite as Google Workspace, Google is also adding features that will help streamline collaboration as more and more companies are extending work-from-home, during the pandemic.
The Google Workspace brings together chat, messaging, meetings, email, docs, voice and video calling, and content management – all built with Google security, into a single, unified experience. Workspace offers a fully integrated user experience, whether you’re in an office, working from home, on the frontlines, or engaging with customers.
Google is also introducing a new user experience with many new features already available while some will be coming soon. The two features available as of today are:
Linked previews: Preview the content of a link in other Google apps without leaving the original document.
Smart chips in Docs, Sheets, and Slides: Introducing the “smart chips” that display contact information when somebody is @-mentioned. A popup will display details providing context and even suggest actions like sharing the document.
Others features that will be launched in the coming weeks:
Doc creation in rooms: Google Workspace will enable users to dynamically create and collaborate on a document (Docs, Sheets, Slides) within a room in Chat, without ever having to switch tabs or tools.
Meet picture-in-picture across Docs, Sheets, and Slides: Users can see and hear the people they’re working with while collaborating.
