Google Apps for Work rebranded as G suite with more productive apps

By : |September 30, 2016 0

Google has decided to rename its Apps for Work with a sleeker plate – G suite. When you move past the label, there are also a slew of smart updates across the board to make your work simpler and always going.

“What if technology lived up to its promise for us at work? What if it helped us cut through the noise so we could work together to focus on what matters? We created Google Apps for Work ten years ago (back when it was Google Apps for Your Domain) to do just that — to help people everywhere work and innovate together, so businesses can move faster and go bigger,” reads the official Google statement.

Starting with Docs, Sheets, and Slides that get a new “Explore” feature that uses natural language search to help you research reports, organize data or design better looking presentations.

In all these apps, an Explore button brings up a new sidebar with contextual options based on the app you’re using. In Docs, this means Explore will search and suggest images, web links or other Drive documents that appear relevant to the content you’re writing. In Sheets, Explore allows you to use words instead of formulas to analyze your spreadsheet data.

And in Slides, this will help you polish your deck by generating design and layout suggestions that can be applied in one click.

Next is a time-saving update called Quick Access for Google Drive which can halve the time it takes to find the file you’re looking for. This feature uses machine learning to anticipate the file you need based on your daily work habits, recurring team meetings or interactions with colleagues. For now, Quick Access is only live for G Suite customers on Android.

Then there is Google Calendar’s “Find a time” feature that is also expanding beyond Android. The feature that is going live today on iOS and will be coming to the web version by the end of the year also uses machine learning to not only find a meeting time that works for everyone invited, but also remembers which conference room you like, searches for backup meeting times and will smartly look at your other conflicting meetings to see which are easiest to resolve.
