Tip of the Week: Gmail’s Newly-Improved Collaboration

Tip of the Week: Gmail’s Newly-Improved Collaboration

Clearly demonstrating their prioritization of their G Suite offering, Google continues to innovate the platform’s many solutions to improve the user experience. Most recently, this has included giving Gmail a few extra functionalities to help further integrate a business’ communications. Let’s look at these functionalities together.

Consolidated Communication Channels

Google is well-known for its communication tools and collaborative options. With the new integrations that are being added to Gmail, users will be able to use these tools even more to their advantage. Beyond just writing emails, users will be able to easily instant message and video conference amongst their teammates.

To accomplish all this, Gmail will incorporate…

  • Chats, an instant messaging platform
  • Meet, a conferencing solution with audio and video capabilities
  • Rooms, a collaborative workspace for your teams to share documents

…in addition to its familiar email capabilities.

Other New Features

Also as a part of this consolidation, Gmail will offer the following utilities to promote collaboration:

Shared Task Lists

Collaboration only works when everyone knows what their individual responsibilities are. Rooms enables you to generate and manage task lists to make sure each person in the Room knows what they need to accomplish, and to better track the progress made toward the group’s goals.

Automated Reminders

You may have already noticed Gmail reminding you to follow up on some of your emails. These automated reminders are Google’s attempt to keep their users on track and accountable.

Boosted Collaboration

These integrations are set to take Gmail’s cooperative nature and dial it up to 11. As just one example, documents can be reviewed and edited in real time directly from Gmail’s Rooms integration.

How useful do you think these features will be moving forward? Have you tried any of them out yet? Share your thoughts in the comments, and don’t forget to subscribe!
