GOOGLE HAS ANNOUNCED Google Currents, the promised enterprise replacement for Google+ which was lanced like the puss-filled boil it was, earlier in the month. Google announced the change of course during its annual developer conference oriented towards Google Cloud activities, called Cloud Next 2019. It's not the first time we've heard about Google Currents: in 2011 the same name was used for Big G's online magazine platform, then became Google Play Newsstand and, finally, the modern Google News.

Google is also making it easier for G Suite customers to search third-party data sources - like Salesforce - from Cloud Search, expanding the data capabilities of Sheets, offering a cloud telephone service that gives users a phone number that works from any device and more.

The updates include features like Google Assistant integration. However, an event can not yet be created through the Assistant, although this feature should be available in future.

Lokey added that over five million businesses are using G Suite, including digital innovators like Netflix, Spotify and Lyft, which built their companies using G Suite and continue to scale using it. Lokey said over 90 million students and educators are also using G Suite applications. As of publishing this update, Google+ is permanently shut down.

Voice also uses text-to-speech technology to automatically create call menus in up to nine languages.

Google has also made it possible to edit in real-time in Microsoft Office.

Live captions are coming to Hangouts Meet, the G Suite video conferencing system, and a live streaming feature that can support up to 100,000 viewers is becoming generally available.

And G Suite now works more closely with Microsoft Office files, which is important for companies that might have standardized on G Suite but share files externally with clients or partners.
