Google is making updates to its Workspace suite of apps and services today, including making them available to anybody with a Google account. Google claims that its Workspace apps have over three billion users, however, it’s certainly safe to assume that Gmail accounts for a sizable portion of that total.
Many individuals will soon be able to move to Google’s more modern and innovative system for Gmail, Docs, and Chat. All of them can be more easily merged in a single tab, for example, with chats sliding to the left to display a shared spreadsheet. It’s also tied to the company’s new smart canvas effort, which aims to connect its numerous programs via smart chips.
Space is fundamentally the same as a chat room, but Google intends to distinguish them as their top-level mode of communication, alongside Gmail, Chat, and Meet. Improved message threading, additional emoji replies, user roles, moderation tools, and “discoverable” places are among the new features added by Google.
Now that Workspace will be available to over three billion average people, the corporation will have to work extra hard to connect coherently with them all.
