Another Google Apps Alert Update



Posted: 17 Dec 2014 03:45 PM PST
People using Google Hangouts on the web can now add custom status messages and see the status messages of others in the Contacts view. Status messages can be added via the settings menu:

By default, custom status messages will be displayed outside of the domain, though admins have the option to restrict them to be displayed within the domain only via Admin console at Apps > Google Apps > Talk/Hangouts > Sharing Settings.

Note: Hangouts status messages are only visible to others using Hangouts. They are not shared to people using Google Talk. Similarly, status messages set in Google Talk will not be shared to Hangouts.

This feature is coming soon for the Hangouts Android and iOS apps.

Release track:
Rapid release and Scheduled release

Today we announced that we’ve added Google Docs to the App Launcher for consumers, making it easier for people to get straight to Google Docs when signed into other Google products.

For Google Apps customers, we’ll be adding all three of the Docs editors―Docs, Sheets, and Slides―to the App Launcher in early January. The editors icons will be on the first screen along with your other Google Apps products:

We’ll announce in early January when the Docs editors have been added. Groups and Contacts will be moved to the ‘More’ screen to make room.

We’ve added some helpful new features to the Google Drive apps for Android and iOS.

On Android, you can now search for files in Drive from the Google app. For example, you could say “OK, Google — search for team meeting notes on Drive” and find files in the Drive app without having to open the app and type in your search query.

On iPhone and iPad, you can now get more of your content in Drive by uploading it from other iOS apps.

The Android update will roll out over the next week or so and the iOS update is already available on the App Store.

Release track:
Rapid release and Scheduled release

We’ve also added a few more Office-friendly improvements:

  • Import/export support for merged cells in Word Documents and slide numbers in Powerpoint
