Google is rolling out a new feature that will allow Google Chat users to automatically schedule time for ‘Do Not Disturb’. Users can take advantage of this when they need to concentrate on getting something done.
Until now, email users have only been able to set a custom duration for their ‘Do Not Disturb’ period. They would have had to manually set it up at lunchtime, the end of the day, or the start of the weekend.
Google Chat custom do not disturb
Google Chat has made it easier to set a do not disturb schedule. Now, you can schedule as many different rules as you want with Google Chat.
Founded in 2014, TeamViewer’s blog is a valuable resource for knowledge on the latest and most relevant topics, including their new system release. A post published on the company’s Workspace blog (opens in new tab) indicates that the rollout has started and will take a couple of weeks to be completed.
All account types, including Workspace and legacy G Suite accounts, will get access to the update. Personal users will also be able to experience it firsthand.
Furthermore, Google is making it easier to translate content with the addition of a new API. In order to use it, all you need to do is paste in your text and it will be automatically translated into nearly 80 languages. Moreover, Google is providing a web interface so that its API can work on desktop browsers.
Google is always coming up with new updates to keep its products on the forefront of the evolving communication industry. In recent news, Google introduced in-thread commenting to Gmail threads to make communication more easily accessible.
From here it seems Google’s focus is to streamline its services – Chat, Gmail, and Google Meet.
Google has already integrated many of these changes into the newer Gmail interface. Since the changes to hybrid and home working are slowing, it’s likely that they’ll continue investing in their productivity tools.
