Google is renewing its office software on mobile devices for G Suite users, affixing the latest features to the Docs, Sheets, and Slides apps that might make it more manageable to get the job completed from the smartphone. The modifications done are mostly visual and incorporate a link preview feature with a new comment interface. Users can now react to comments on their files straight from Gmail.
The updates include the extension of a dark theme for Docs, Sheets and Slides. Following this is the addition of Google’s Smart Compose technology to Docs on mobile and the convenience to edit Microsoft Office documents without converting them. Other updates involve a modish vertically scrollable slide-viewing experience in Slides.
G Suite clients will be able to access the Smart Compose in Docs which applies a Google algorithm that interprets the context of a text and foretells what the user’s next words might be. With Smart Compose, you can actually tap on the predicted words rather than writing them yourself. Google is launching Smart Compose on the iOS Docs app forthwith and on Android from August 12th. Gmail and the web version of Docs already possess the aforementioned feature which allows Google to automatically provide recommendations to complete the sentences. It would be pretty helpful, particularly for users who are not experts at typing on their phones.
