Google has added few new updates in its cloud based Apps. Among them was the upgrade to Google documents, a internet-based writing program.
From their blog they added “Voice typing has helped change the way we work on the go (when it’s easier to talk than type). We’re now bringing that innovation to the web, where improvements to voice transcription make even long-form dictation, like sharing your brainstorming ideas with teammates around the world, a breeze.”
The update supports over 40 languages. A reviewer at the Economic Times found that it was really only useful with single input in a quiet room, as otherwise the voice recognition software made too many mistakes. However, one can assume the feature will be tailored in future updates to allow for use in more business settings.
Google has been in the news lately with the unveiling of its new logo on Monday. As most news firms summarizes, the new, friendlier-looking logo is meant as a symbol that the company is no longer limited to just a search engine. Having been restructured into a new, larger company called Alphabet, Google is focused on becoming a large resource of various sites, apps, and technological products.
