Google Docs will learn how to notify about changes to shared files

The Google Workspace blog has a description of a new feature that will appear in Google Docs in the near future. This is an option to receive notifications about changes in documents: just like you can now receive notifications about comments.

This way you can immediately see that someone has started work on a common project or made changes to your text . The interface of the emails themselves is quite simple and clear: you can immediately see what was added or removed, and who did it.

If you start to fill up notifications for a document that you are no longer working with, you can turn off notification and comment messages right in the email. In addition, notifications must be enabled manually for each document, which will also save you from email blockages.

Unlike many Google Workspace innovations, this feature will become available to all users, both with and without a subscription. The update will roll out gradually, it will take 2-4 weeks depending on the type of account. It will just have time to spread by the beginning of the school year.
