Google launches Cloud Search for its G Suite customers

By : |February 8, 2017 0

Google has launched a new tool for its business users called Google Cloud Search that will allow users to search across G Suite products, including Drive, Gmail, Sites, Calendar, Docs, Contacts and more.

The service was introduced last year known as Springboard, and described as something like a Google Now for enterprise workers. Cloud Search is designed for use in big companies where different groups and individuals have access to different files. The service looks like Microsoft’s Office Delve app, which surfaces documents which are stored across multiple Office 365 services.

Additionally, the Cloud Search works as a directory service, allowing users to seek out colleagues’ contact information, while also viewing the events and files they have in common. You can even choose to send an email, make a call, or start a Hangout with just a tap.

“Cloud Search brings the best of Google Search and machine intelligence to G Suite. It provides both comprehensive search and proactive recommendations to help you throughout your day,” Google Cloud product manager Brent VerWeyst wrote in a blog post.

On the lines of Google Now, Google Cloud Search employs a card-style design to present information to users, whether you’re accessing the search service via your phone or laptop. The service also uses machine intelligence to highlight information it thinks you’re most likely to need.

As the company notes in the blog post, the basic purpose of Cloud Search is to reduce the time that the workers today spend searching for and consolidating information. Google Cloud Search is rolling out now for customers using G Suite Business and Enterprise editions. Google also noted that it will introduce more features in the future that will integrate with third-party applications.
