Google Cloud has announced Google Workspace, which brings together messaging, meetings, docs, and tasks in an integrated experience.
“This is the end of the ‘office’ as we know it,” said Javier Soltero, Vice President and General Manager of Google Workspace.
“From here on out, teams need to thrive without meeting in person, protect their time to focus on the most impactful work, and build human connection in new ways."
The Google Workspace user experience thoughtfully brings together core tools for communication and collaboration – such as chat, email, voice and video calling, and content management – into a single, unified experience.
Its new features include the ability to preview content a link without leaving the original document, as well as to connect users to relevant content and people right in Docs, Sheets and Slides.
In the coming weeks, Google Workspace will also enable users to dynamically create and collaborate on a document (Docs, Sheets, Slides) within a room in Chat, without ever having to switch tabs or tools. This will reduce complexity and help ensure all team members have visibility into relevant project work, Google said in a press statement.
