From the beginning, Google Docs has been built with collaboration in mind. Everyone edits the same document and there’s no need to worry about attachments. While we’ve been very satisfied with Google Docs’ ability to facilitate collaboration between people working at different computers in different locations, we’ve always felt that there was a huge potential to push collaboration with Google Docs even further.
Today, we’re extremely excited to announce that Google Docs Motion BETA is in development and will be available later this year. Google Docs Motion will let you use your body to control Google Docs and will launch with a number of key features:
Gesture recognition - over 10,000 supported gestures
Emotion detection - writing tone corresponds with emotions
In-depth tutorial - start being more productive in a few minutesWork together on business proposalsWhether you are letting your creativity flow in drawings, creating a business proposal in documents, working on charts in spreadsheets or uploading files to the document list, Google Docs Motion increases collaboration and speeds up productivity. Ada Wong, Google Docs Motion Head Tester, has uncovered that there are incredible health benefits associated with using Motion. In her words, “It’s become an important part of keeping myself fit."
