In an attempt to bring more powerful editing functionality, Google has introduced a new feature to its browser-based text editor.
Named “Compare Documents”, the latest feature will allow users to compare two Google docs to find differences between two files. Afterwards, the latest addition will show the difference between two docs as “Suggested Edits” in a new document.
Talking about the recently implemented changes, the company noted, “This feature makes it easy to see changes between two docs over time. For instance, educators can use this tool to compare essays and track revisions, saving them time when grading. On the other hand, business users can use this tool during contract negotiations to see what terms have changed throughout the negotiation process and to compare the final version of the doc to the initial version.”
If you are interested in using the latest feature, you will need to go to Tools and select Compare Documents. While the update should be available to a number of users, Google has noted that the company is releasing the update on a rolling basis. As a result, if you don’t see the update immediately, you will need to wait few more days before you can access the feature.
