Google's G Suite

Yesterday Google introduced a new brand and logo that better reflects their mission to help people collaborate: The G Suite.

Google also rolled out improvements and new features in many apps, thanks to its decade long experience with machine learning. TechRadar has put together a great review of the new features, which include:

  • Introduction of a new Explore feature consisting of intelligent assistants that help you craft better documents in Docs, Sheets and Slides.
  • Quick Access capability was introduced into Google Drive. Quick Access uses machine learning to automatically surface files it thinks you’ll need next based on your usage patterns.
  • Natural language processing was also added to Google Drive, making searching easier. Now you can phrase your search in everyday conversational terms.
  • Google announced a partnership with Box, which will now be integrated with Google Docs. This will allow users to edit documents directly from Box’s cloud storage.
