Google Docs is getting emoji reactions later this year


Emoji reactions are a great way to signal your appreciation for a Slack message or Twitter DM without putting any real effort into it. Google Docs is hopping on the bandwagon.

Live translations are also coming to Meet calls later this year, including English-to-Spanish to start. Read more... More about Google Io , Tech , and Consumer Tech
