The upcoming Google Docs will place the Toolbar at the top for a streamlined experience across apps. Google is also planning to update Workspace apps with all the features that are borrowed from their web versions. This includes fresh iconography, colors, and rounded elements.

Google has shared a screenshot of the apps tablet interface. We have to wait and see whether the UI will scale properly on mobile. We also don’t know when the search engine giant will roll out the update. Google is also pushing a change where you will view Type @ to insert option. This will help you to make use of the smart canvas functionality in Sheets.

You will be able to manage children’s devices and other online activities with the help of the Family Link module. You can manage app approval and screen time limits.
