Google Docs is Getting Some Big Updates, Here’s What You Should Know

Google Docs is a fine example of Google penetrating a market that most people had assumed was owned by a single entity which was Microsoft in this case. The word processor has quickly become the most popular way for people to get any and all writing done, and it has created a situation wherein Microsoft Word has started to fade into obscurity although plenty of people still tend to use it as their word processor of choice.

With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that Google has some pretty big updates in store for Docs, at least when it comes to Workspace users and the like. Focusing on enterprise grade features and updates has been a pretty big priority for Google so far, so it makes sense that this would involve upgrading Google Docs and turning it into an even more useful resource than it currently is with all things having been considered and taken into account.

The first big feature that Google Docs is getting is an AI based summary creator because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up allowing you to read through brief descriptions of the contents of a document without having to worry about reading through it entirely if you just want an overview. This feature is already widely available, and you can see an AI generated summary in the sidebar. Users can also create summaries of their own if they so choose, although the AI summaries are likely going to get the job done perfectly well.



Google Docs is also getting a new pageless format that is meant to encourage collaboration, and there will be a few different kinds of collaborative email templates that users will get to take advantage of in the near future as well. Suffice it to say that Google is upping the ante for its word processor and these features are likely going to make Docs even more popular since it can facilitate an easygoing work process that is convenient and efficient.
