Google Workspace has received some minor, but useful, updates. When you join a Google Meet call or begin presenting on one from a Docs, Sheets, or Slides file, you’ll soon be able to share that file with other attendees via the meeting’s chat panel.
You can give everyone on the call access to the file or just a few people. While on the call, you will all be able to collaborate on the document, spreadsheet, or presentation.
Google also says it will use your recent Gmail search activity to improve search results when you use the email service on the web.
According to the company, this will make Gmail search results more relevant and contextual.
Finally, a requested feature is on its way to Sheets that will allow users to resize the pivot table editor side panel.
This is useful when the names of some pivot table columns or fields are too long and you want to see the entire text.
These updates will be available to all Workspace and G Suite users within the next 15 business days, according to Google.
The company recently announced a welcome upgrade to the Workspace individual plan, increasing storage from 15GB to 1TB at no additional cost to users.
