The Google Docs, Slide, Sheets and Forms apps have been given new features in a bid to ease the process of creating content.
Jude Flannery, engineering director at the company, announced the updates in a post on the Google for Work blog, noting that over 100 updates have been made to Docs this year.
"Now we're taking the first steps to incorporate the power and intelligence of Google into Docs. We hope to make analysing your data more intuitive, editing more accessible and document styling more dynamic," she said.
The new Research feature (video below) in the Docs Android app is designed to reduce the number of steps needed to pull information, such as quotes, facts and images, from multiple documents into a new document.
Flannery explained that the feature means users need never leave the app during the process of creating a document.
Docs also gained a 'save new changes' option to allow people working on a joint document to track all the changes made by different users.
An Explore feature, meanwhile, presents spreadsheet data in a more visual way to make sense of data logged in Google Sheets.
Users can simply select data and create charts or annotations through the added Explore panel to make it easier to interpret data, as the video below demonstrates.
Google Forms is to receive a refresh which will add new themes and the option to add photos or logos to forms created in the app.
Flannery said that the updates will also be extended to other Google productivity tools in a bid to suit the varied uses and user base of the apps.
"You'll now notice a new arsenal of templates in the Docs, Sheets and Slides homescreens to make your work really stand out. Whether you're creating a project plan for the team's next big product launch, or a simple budget spreadsheet to manage office finances for the next quarter, you'll find a template for every scenario," she said.
Flannery also introduced improvements to voice typing through Chrome, highlighting improvements to the neural network-powered transcription capabilities so that long-form dictation can be carried out. Support is offered for over 40 languages.
Google has pushed out updates to the Google for Work portfolio of apps throughout most of this year, having bolstered the cloud security of Drive for Work with file tracking and alerts.
