Google Docs is getting new ‘Show Editors’ feature to easily identify changes in shared documents


Google Docs adds ‘Doc Editors’ option to easily track who’s making changes to a shared document. The new feature allows users to select a portion of text in a document and see who edited it. This makes it easier to track corrections when multiple collaborators are working on the same document. Google is releasing the update in two phases. Accounts that wanted to be in the Quick Publish domain can already see the changes, while gradually publishing domain accounts began to receive it gradually from May 3rd. The latter will see its effects in their Google Docs versions in about 15 days.

Google announced the update via a blog post, and changes to the Google Docs function, which now offers the ‘Show Editors’ option, will allow users to highlight a text, and right-click to see who has recently edited it. It will also display a list of authors with their latest revisions and respective timestamps. Additionally, users can view the version history of each revision. There will be no special management privileges for the new feature.

The search company also announced that the new Google Docs ‘Show Editor’ feature will only be available to Google Workplace Business Standard, Business Plus, Enterprise Standard, Enterprise Plus and Education Plus customers. It is also inaccessible to Google Workplace Essentials, Business Starter, Enterprise Essentials, Education Basics, Leading and Nonprofit Companies and G-Suite Basic and Business Customers.

Last year, Google announced that users could edit Microsoft Office files using Google Docs, Sheets and Slides. This feature was first introduced in 2019 for its web applications and later for Android applications.
