Google unveiled its Smart Canvas earlier this year, making collaboration during online work much easier and simpler than ever before using Google Workspace.
The feature allows users to include the wide array of tools offered by Google, key of which are Docs, Sheets, Slides and Meet to any document that they are working on.
To add to this, Google also introduced smart chips which allow users to include building blocks to connect people, work and events into a simple experience.
What is This New Google Docs Feature?
Today, via the new universal @ menu for Google Docs, the company is making it easier to add things like images, tables, in addition to the smart chips.
Users need to type @ while in the document, after which they will see a list of files, meetings, content elements, formats and people that are recommended.
This addition is quite major, since it ties all of Google’s online tools for collaboration in an easy method to boost the overall productivity, since users will no longer have to keep on switching tabs, apps and leave documents every time they need to do something.
In a separate post present on Google’s Workspace blog, the company has mentioned that Docs will now let users mark a paragraph to begin on a new page, using the Add page break before option.
The new feature makes a lot of sense for writers and journalists, who want for certain styles of paragraphs to create a new page, such as a title or a subtitle.
This new “Add page break before” will also let users import and export Microsoft Word and other documents that have the option applied to paragraphs.
To access this feature, users need to go to Format>Line and Paragraph spacing in the Docs menu bar, after which they need to click “add page break before”
What Else is Google Working On?
In other news, Google claims that the Pixel 6 series will be the fastest Pixel smartphone ever. Also, if the new Tensor chip performs well, this could be a game changer for Google.
However, it appears that Google is quite confident on the Pixel 6 series. According to Nikkei News, Google plans to double its smartphone shipments for the first time.
Google has asked suppliers to produce more than 7 million Pixel 6 series smartphones. This number is about twice its smartphone shipments last year. For the Google Pixel 5a smartphones, Google produced five million units.
