Gmail's search functionality has been improved, and now include collaboration features.
- Pivot tables can now be resized in Google Sheets.
- In Meet chat, users can share files or the presentation that is currently running.

Google has announced that its Workspace apps will soon receive updates that include new functionality. According to the search engine giant, updates to Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides have been made, along with minor changes to Gmail. Gmail should make it simpler for users to search, while Google Meet will allow users to share files during chat in Meet and the Sheets app makes it simple for users to view data.
According to Google, the new updates to these apps should already be visible to the vast majority of users worldwide and shouldn't take more than 15 business days to fully implement. The Gmail app's search improvements are one of the most important new updates.
Google claims its free email service will now provide customers with better search results after announcing improved search and suggestion capabilities in Gmail in July. According to the blog post, these results are based on recent search activity within the Gmail client.
In other words, depending on what users have already searched for in the app, the upgrade will make search results more contextual and relevant. The company is also updating Google Sheets to enhance pivot tables' functionality. Pivot tables can now be resized in the spreadsheet app when creating or editing them, according to Google, who claims that this was a feature that was frequently requested.
The chat function now allows users who are presenting or joining a meeting from a file to share the same files. Access to the files—which may be a document, spreadsheet, or presentation—is automatically provided; this can be done for everyone or even just a small group of people, and all of these settings can be altered in the share menu itself.
For devices with larger displays, such as tablets and huge foldables, Google recently introduced drag and drop. When both Workspace apps are open in a split view, side by side, the update allows users to easily drag and drop data from one Workspace app into another. The upgrade makes it simpler to import files between documents. The function was previously released on Google Drive and
