Google announces new features for Google Workspace to make digital work more innovative

By Kenn Anthony Mendoza

Google introduces new features in Google Workspace to help people become more productive and get the work done whether they’re working in a hybrid or virtual setting.

First, Google Workspace introduced automated summaries in Google Docs to provide users digested conversations. Summaries allow users to catch up what they missed from Spaces. This will be launched next year.

Another feature is the automated meeting transcription for Google Meet to easily reference discussion at a later time.

Helping to ensure everyone in the team can be seen and heard

Google is also enhancing image, sound, and content sharing capabilities in Google Meet. Portrait restore uses Google’s AI to help improve your video quality by addressing issues caused by low light, low quality webcams, or poor network connectivity. This processing automatically happens in the cloud to enhance video quality without impacting device performance.

Portrait light uses machine learning to simulate studio-quality lighting in video feed, and light position and brightness can even be adjusted.

De-reverberation, meanwhile, filters out the echoes in spaces with hard surfaces, that can give conference-room audio quality whether the user is in the basement, a kitchen, or a big empty room.

Live sharing in Google Meet can make hybrid meetings more interactive by synchronising media and content across participants. Users will be able to share controls and interact directly within the meeting.

Helping to ensure hybrid collaboration is secure by design

Collaboration – across time zones, physical locations, and documents – must happen on a secure foundation. Google Workspace is built with a zero-trust approach and comes with enterprise-grade access management, data protection, encryption, and endpoint protections built in.

Google says its systems constantly learn from each attempted attack against billions of users. These insights anticipate and thwart new attacks by identifying emerging patterns and entry points.

This year, Google is scaling its phishing and malware protections that guard Gmail to Google slides, docs, and sheets.

If a doc, sheet, or slide contains phishing links or malware, users will automatically be alerted and guided back to safety.
