#TechBytes: New features coming on Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides

In addition to several new features, Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides mobile apps can finally edit Microsoft Office files.

In a blog post today, Rany Ng, director of product management at G Suite, said the growing trend of remote working means that more and more people have to rely on G Suite's mobile apps to get their work done.

Comments interface: Google has improved the interface for comments, making it easier for team members to collaborate. While vertically scrolling through slides, users can pinch to zoom and easily switch to editing, presenting, and casting content. Android users can expect to see this appear in the next few weeks, while iOS users will have to wait a few more months, Ng said.

Google docs is one of the widely used apps for reading documents, editing, and making minor changes to them when you don't feel like opening a computer. This feature is gradually rolling out and will be available for both G Suite customers and users with personal accounts.

The brand-new remark user interface makes it much easier to browse through all remarks from a single pane. For those who've never heard about this feature that's already available on the web version of Google Docs, here is what it does for you. The company had introduced this feature on the Web a year ago and now will be available for mobile apps also.

Smart Compose aims to save you time by providing Docs users with suggestions for what to type next.

Smart Compose: This AI-powered tool will help reduce spelling and grammatical errors, and write faster. It has introduced Smart Compose, link previews, Office file support, and more. This is available on Android and will be rolled out to iOS within a few months. You can download the apps to avail these features for Docs (Android/iOS), Sheets (Android/iOS), and Slides (Android/iOS).

Users will now be able to view an updated comments thread around Gmail documents which can be resolved or replied directly to, through the message.
