“Google Docs is getting collapsible headings as part of its ongoing effort to imitate features that Microsoft 365 and even Office have had for ages.”
Google Docs is an online word processor that helps users write textual content inclusive of images and videos. We have been hearing Google has joined the AI race, of course a little late, but this time the company is in trend with its online editing tool, Google Docs.
What is the purpose of Docs in Google Workspace?
Google Docs is getting collapsible headings as part of its ongoing effort to imitate features that Microsoft 365 and even Office have had for ages.
The announcement stated that the change will be available soon for Google Workspace and Personal users, but as is often the case, we discovered that the feature is not yet available for us specifically.
This is a good thing; it will keep documents from becoming cluttered or unruly. We’re just puzzled as to why it took until 2023 for this to happen.
When we say that Google software has always been behind the times – whether it’s determined to chase the AI moment after Microsoft recognises success in that space or continuing to lack reorderable headings in the document outline – we’re not being clickbait.
The best way to improve a productivity tool is not to add features that rely on jargon and assurances of a personal assistant doing your work for you.
Take note, Google: make it simple to export images from Docs without requiring me to download a zipped.html file of the entire document, implement the reorderable outline feature, and generally go back to 2003.
