Google Docs adds new smart canvas features

What’s changing

In 2021, Google launched smart canvas to drive the next era of collaboration in Google Workspace. We’re now announcing new smart canvas features that will create a more flexible, interactive, and intelligent experience, enhancing the content and connections that fuel collaboration across Google Workspace.

Now you can:

  • Add a summary to your document, giving readers a high level overview of its content.
    • Note: For some Google Workspace editions, you’ll see automatically generated summary suggestions in certain cases. See below for availability.
  • Create pageless documents in Docs, making it easier to collaborate on documents with wide tables, large images, and more.

You can read more about these features on the Google Cloud Blog

Why it’s important

Summaries in Docs provide a brief overview of the main points in a document, so you can quickly parse the information that matters and prioritize where to focus. You can also edit the summaries, or create your own.
