The company announced last week a few small updates to their Google Workspace product. At least one could mean a lot for how people share access to files, especially when they are in the middle of a meeting.
An update to Google Spreadsheets adds support for resizing the pivot table editor side panel.
We’re excited to announce that you can resize the pivot table editor side panel easily and without having to close it. This is such a useful feature for anyone with long name columns.
The latest update to the product will use your search history from Gmail in order to make it more tailored to your needs on the web.
In July, we announced great updates to email search in Gmail. Now when using Gmail on the web, we also offer better search results based on recent search activity. These enhancements make the results much more relevant and contextual.
Google’s latest update has already brought some major changes. Now, when you’re in a Google Meet Meeting, participants can share Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides files through chat right from the meeting. Additionally, participants have the option to quickly pass on a shared file wirelessly or not.
We are excited to introduce the ability to present or join a Google meeting from your Google Docs tab, Sheets, or Slides. Now, we’ve added the ability for your meeting attendees to collaborate during the meeting while staying in-conference chat with you by granting access directly from within a file!
If people use this product frequently, it could boost the adoption of Meet. It’s important to note that this is still a trial, so we’ll see if there are even really any users using it and whether they’re using it more often than they would otherwise use Slack.
