Google Docs is arguably one of the best online word processors available on the market. However, Google aims to make this tool more than just a full-featured platform for word processors and collaboration projects. Now, after adding support for text watermarks, Google Docs will get the emoji reaction and make things more fun. Let’s check the details below.
Google Docs wins emoji reaction
Google recently shared an official blog post on the Workspace forum and Development of emoji reaction For Google Docs.The company says it “Provides a more informal alternative to comments to express your opinion about the content of the document.” Therefore, this allows the user to react to a particular part of the text document by simply highlighting that particular part.
This is similar to the reaction available on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and other platforms. Remember, even WhatsApp has been working on emoji reactions for the longest time.
Google also shared a short GIF to show how it works in Google Docs after the feature is exposed to users. You need to highlight some of the text in the document. Show new emoji reaction button With “Add Comment” and “Suggest Edit” buttons. You can check it because it is attached just below.
Users can click on new options to access the previously used emoji library. Updated to the latest version (Emoji 14.0).. Therefore, the library contains all the latest emojis, including gender-neutral options. Users can also use the search field at the top of the emoji panel to find a specific emoji. It has been shown that this feature is turned on by default when it becomes available to users. It cannot be disabled and is not under the control of the administrator.
The emoji reaction function is “Google Workspace Essentials, Business Starter, Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Standard, and Enterprise Plus” user. Not available for basic hierarchies such as GSuite Basic and Business customers or Enterprise Essentials users. Google says it has begun rolling out features to the Rapid Release domain. However, starting April 20th, more users will see this feature.
