Google Docs: Save time searching with new features

What’s changing: Google is building Quick Access into Google Docs to make it available to more G Suite users. In addition, Google is adding a natural language search feature while you search for data. Google hopes that these new improvements will help you spend less time searching for documents and more time working.

Expand Quick Access in Docs to more users

Google launched the Quick Access feature in Docs earlier this year to help users spend less time searching for the right material and more time coming up with creative ideas. Now, Google has made this feature available to all G Suite users. (Previously, it was only visible on a subfile of G Suite instances).

Quick Access uses artificial intelligence to suggest related files on the right side – the “Explore” panel of Docs. These suggestions are based on your Google Drive activities and information in your documents. Users can add that information to their documents to enrich their writing, discover project-related content, and more.

Add natural language processing to search in Explore

Google is making searching in the Google Docs “Explore” panel easier by adding natural language processing.

This means users can search in a more natural and intuitive way. Just describe what you're looking for, and Docs will find it for you. So you can search with phrases you use every day like “show me slides shared with me last week” or “show documents I created this month” and Docs will bring you the best results.

This is similar to Natural language processing is used in other Google products and will show you files and related information from your Google Drive, including Docs, Sheets, and Slides files.
