As part of its next update spree, Google has brought many new features to its G Suite apps. The most striking of all feature has been brought to Google Docs, which will now come with AI-assisted grammatical checking feature. The function will be based on Machine Learning and will help users in eliminating grammatical errors in their documents by suggesting the required change. Additionally, other G Suit apps have received security centre investigation tool, data regions, and Hangouts has received voice command functionality.
Google has remarked that the new grammar checking tool in Docs will be based on Machine Learning and it will keep improving itself over time. The feature will detect errors and will also suggest the required change to eliminate it alongside. Users will get rectifying prompt for simple grammatical errors like how to use articles in a sentence, to more complicated grammatical concepts such as how to use subordinate clauses correctly. The feature will remain native to Google Docs, and it is already available to the people who have signed up for the Early Adopter program.
Like we mentioned above, Google Docs isn’t the only application in G Suite which has received a new update. Google Hangouts now also comes with Smart Reply feature which will make smart suggestions to enable quick reply for the users. This feature will be available to Hangouts users as quickly as within a week.
Additionally, Hangouts Meet has been expected to receive voice command functionality. However, that might remain limited to select customers only. Gmail now also comes with a new addition to Smart Compose. The AI-based feature allows the users to autocomplete their emails based on quick suggestions. The feature will be able to fill in greetings, sign-offs and common phrases. It will also learn your address, and other frequently typed details to help you draft emails quickly.
Talking about another big release by Google, the tech giant spoke about Cloud Build – its new continuous delivery/continuous deployment (CI/CD) platform. The new platform seeks to make developers’ jobs easier, by helping them in building, testing and deploying their software. The platform will also be able to handle large scale operations. It works on environments like VMs, serverless, Kubernetes, or Firebase, and supports Docker containers. Apart from the 120 free build minutes on Cloud Build, additional minutes will be charged at $0.0034 per minute for the developers.
It is noteworthy that Google has announced the Cloud Build platform almost after two years of beta testing. Additionally, the tech giant has unveiled the Cloud Services Platform that offers businesses a set of cloud services on both the Google Cloud Platform and in-office environments. Google also seeks to install “virtual agents” in call centres under its Contact Center AI software which will likely replace some work at call centres. Google is partnering with companies like Cisco and Genesys for this project.
