Google Docs and Sheets will soon count against Drive storage, but the deadline is changing

Google Docs and Sheets will soon count against Drive storage, but the deadline is changing

Google had always been fairly generous with its cloud storage, but that policy finally started to change late last year. In addition to losing out on free high-quality photo uploads, all files created in Drive will begin counting against your total storage allotment on June 1st. While that leaves most of us with just a couple of months left before these changes take effect, Workspace and G Suite users have been granted an extension, moving the date for those accounts to February 1st, 2022.

Google updates Chat UI for Workspace users to match personal accounts

Workspace customers have had access to Google Chat since last year, and it finally became available for personal users earlier this month.

Google Chat now suggests conversations based on your appointments

Google Chat now suggests conversations based on your appointments

When you're running from one meeting to another without a break in between, there's often a chance you're going to be a few minutes behind, whether it's because you need more time to finish a discussion or to take a technical break. Common courtesy is to let people know you're going to be late, but this should be as easy as possible, especially when you're already short on time. Thankfully, Google Workspace just rolled out a new feature that makes it very convenient to chat with people with whom you're about to meet.

But sometimes, aliases can also make things confusing when you're searching for something in Gmail. Thankfully, Google Workspace is rolling out a change that allows searches for email addresses in Gmail to return related aliases it's associated with.

Google Docs now warns you when mentioning a user who's out of office

Google Docs now warns you when mentioning a user who's out of office

Google Docs has made it easy for several people to collaborate on the same document. Since it's integrated with other G Suite products, the online productivity solution also lets users mention their co-workers or reply to their comments, allowing them to collaborate seamlessly. However, your colleague may be out of the office when you need something from them, which is why Docs will now let you know they're probably not going to reply to your comment as fast as you might expect them to.

Gmail is one of Google's most widely used products, which means the company likes to cram a lot of integrations with its other tools into it. Last year, a redesigned interface showed up for G Suite customers with support for Chat and Rooms sections in the sidebar. Now Google is rolling out an update that lets users resize these sections to suit their needs.

Third-party add-ons now available in Docs, Sheets, and Slides

Google's suite of office products are already pretty handy on their own, but with add-ons in the mix, things can get even better.

Unlimited Google Drive storage is getting more expensive with Workspace

Unlimited Google Drive storage is getting more expensive with Workspace

Google Workspace is replacing G Suite, and anyone interested in the new features can sign up or switch over to the service right now (unless they're managing an Education or Non-profit organization). But if you're one of the many people relying on G Suite's $12/month unlimited storage "hack," you might be better off sticking to your current G Suite plan — if you want unlimited storage on the new Workspace tiers, it will cost you at least $20 a month.
