Google Workspace Updates Weekly Recap, 8th September 2023

5 Updates

Expanding autocorrect to Google Chat on web 

Google Chat on web will now automatically correct misspelled words, making it easier to send messages without typos.

Similar to functionality in Gmail and Google Docs, the corrected words are shown with a grey underline so you know when the auto-correction has occurred.

Expanding streamlined file organisation across Google Workspace 

Earlier this year, Google introduced streamlined file organisation with the new Google Drive location picker.

As a follow up, Google are expanding this updated visual experience to Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drawings, Sites and Gmail.

Users will now have access to helpful suggestions when moving files, adding shortcuts to files, or creating copies of files.

Updated zoom in/out capabilities across Google Docs, Slides and Drawings

Additionally, you can now smoothly zoom in or out in Slides using the trackpad or mouse wheel with a modifier key (cmd/ctrl), making it easier to control your view of Slides.

Dynamic groups now supports negation queries 

You can now create or edit dynamic groups to use negation in membership queries.

For example, you can opt to create a dynamic group that excludes all users from a particular sub organization or specific job title. There are a few limitations, however — any query using the “exists” macro and using the AND (&) operator or queries where the NOT operator is used inside of the “exists” macro will not be supported. | Rolling out to Rapid Release and Scheduled Release domains at gradual pace (up to 15 days for feature visibility) starting September 11, 2023.
