Today, Google announced improvements to its mobile office suite, making commenting way easier across both desktop and mobile apps with Docs, Sheets, and Slides.
In Docs on the desktop, when you highlight some text a little button will pop up on the right, you can then click it and start commenting. Prior to the update, you needed to remember a relatively arcane key combination or find the option in the menu bar.
Google is also bringing comments to its mobile apps for Sheets and Slides on both iOS and Android.
The latest features will need to be tested out before we can fully say how much of an improvement they are, but there was definitely plenty of room for improvement. The updates for all three apps should be rolling out starting today.
