Google a few months ago released its most significant Gmail update in years, refreshing the designing of its popular email app and adding a bunch of neat features meant to improve the overall email experience further and increase productivity—Fast forward, the tech giant has announced that one of the brand new design changes that hit Gmail earlier this year will also be available on other G Suite apps.
Google is expanding the side panel in the revamped version of Gmail to other G Suite apps in an effort to make navigation and multi-tasking for users smoother and quicker—With the new sidebar, users would be able to access three G Suite products from Docs itself – Sheets, Slides, and Drawings.
“We’re adding a quick-access side panel to the Docs editors and Google Calendar to help you quickly access other G Suite products without leaving what you’re working on,” the G Suite team wrote in a blog post.
The quick-access side panel which is available on the right side of your Gmail inbox, a feature which enable enables quick access to several Google apps, such as Calendar, Keep, and Tasks, with just one click, users can access content from these apps right inside Gmail, which might come in handy when you’re dealing with your daily email chores.
Going forward, the quick-access panel will be available inside Google Calendar and Google Docs. That way, you’ll also be able to work on G Suite apps and access calendar events, notes, and tasks with ease.
The features should be arriving from those on Google’s “rapid release” schedule and more broadly for all G Suite users over the course of the next two weeks,
