Google to Bring Emoji Reactions to Docs Comments for Its Users

Google Docs is one of the most popular programs for people that require word processors, and a major benefit of using it is that it can facilitate collaboration through its comment section. Users can highlight changes that have been made in a document which was shared with them and leave comments, and this can sometimes create a rather frustrating thread wherein you might have to type out a response to each comment in order to confirm that you have read it and are working on the desired changes.

In an attempt to improve the efficiency of the comments section available on Google Docs, the application will soon be letting users react with Emoji instead of having to type out lines of text. The initial rollout of this feature will be limited, but with all of that having been said and now out of the way it is important to note that when it finally gets a wider rollout it will definitely be a well received update to an essential service that people use.

Being able to respond with Emoji is useful because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up helping you respond in a matter of seconds, and every minute you save will contribute to your improved efficiency in the long run. When the feature is rolled out, it will be visible between the options that currently exist which enable you to Add Comment and Suggest Edits. The button will be placed here because this is where it is most needed with all things having been considered and taken into account.

Only Google Business account users will get the chance to use these Emoji, but it seems likely that Google would want to expand the availability of such a feature. This is in line with recent trends among tech companies that involve incorporating social media oriented features into a various properties. Emoji are a widely used form of communication and they can often help you express your feelings in an instant because an image is worth more than a thousand words after all.
