Chrome omnibox will show Drive file suggestions for G Suite users, and I'm jealous (Update: Out of beta)

One of the little annoyances of my online life is the inability to quickly launch Google Drive files by just typing their name in the Chrome omnibox. I always start doing that then remember that this is reliant on my browsing history and bookmarks, so I go to Drive instead, find the file, and bookmark it if I think I'll need frequent access to it. Turns out things are a little easier for G Suite users, and they're about to become even better. Color me jealous.

One of the most common complaints we hear whenever a new Google product arrives (besides the pile of "when is it getting shut down" unoriginal jokes) is that G Suite users either can't try the new product at all, or there is limited functionality.

There is also a little-known My Devices page, mostly used within G Suite organizations, which works with all mobile devices logged into your Google account. Starting today, the latter page is getting a much-needed facelift.

Google mocks G Suite users again, states it intentionally removed Assistant reminders

Three months ago, Assistant reminders suddenly stopped working for G Suite users, with no warning or statement from Google. There hasn't been a proper fix either, other than reverting to an older version of the Google app or using Calendar for reminders instead. To add insult to injury, the company has now locked a support thread full of people asking for help and offered no explanation other than that the change was intentional and that it would update them on the situation later on.

Latest Material Design for Docs, Sheets, and Slides rolling out to G Suite accounts

Back in June, Google began rolling out new Material Design looks to Docs, Sheets, and Slides. It took a couple months for that roll-out to hit the wider public, but most Gmail accounts now have it. We say "most accounts" because it's rare for general users of Google's services to come in lockstep with what G Suite account holders are experiencing. Now, we're learning that G Suite users will see the fresh styling on those three apps.
