Google Adds Mobile Commenting to Sheets, Slides

The Google Docs suite just got a lot more mobile-friendly.

Google on Wednesday launched real-time mobile commenting for Sheets and Slides on Android and iOS, rounding out mobile editing for the Docs suite. The company also updated Docs commenting, making it easier to share your thoughts and add another person to the conversation.

“If you’re like most of our Google Apps customers, there’s a good chance you’re working from different locations throughout the day,” Google Docs Product Manager Ryan Weber wrote in a blog post. “Whether you’re on a tablet at the breakfast table, a phone on the train, or a laptop at the office, it’s important to have a suite of apps that allow you to be productive from wherever you are.”

So, beginning today, you can use the same iOS and Android-friendly mobile commenting experience already available in Docs in Sheets and Slides as well. You can also now quickly add someone else to your back-and-forth by typing their name in a comment.

“We know that mobility is critical for today’s professionals,” Weber wrote. “That’s why we continue to invest in features that make being productive on the go simple.”

Meanwhile, Google also today rolled out a new commenting experience for those times you’re using Docs at your desk. You can now instantly insert a comment using the bubble that appears on the right side of a doc.

Check out the video below for a peek at the new mobile commenting feature in Slides. The video also features a delicious-looking chocolate cake recipe from an actual Google engineer and his wife, in honor of National Chocolate Cake Day, which happens to be today.
