Google Docs gets new research tool, lets you search without leaving your work

Google docs has released a new search tool! This tool will allow you to ‘learn’ more about the information in your document. You will find a sidebar on the right side in Google Docs.

The new tool is offering the ability to search for any topic without leaving the document you are working on it. This will prevent clicking back and forth. Now  you can stay in the document to do searching. Cool feature!

You just need to type on the search bar and the results can be added to the document itself. Even the images can be dragged and dropped in your document. The results can be anything you want such as images, quotes or other basis information.

Referring to Google:

The Research tool will appear along the right-hand side of your document. You can start a search by typing into the search bar. You can narrow your search to specific types of results (e.g. images, quotations) by using the drop-down menu in the search bar.

To access the tool:

– Select the Research option from the Tools menu.
– Use the keyboard shortcut (Cmd + Opt + R on Mac, Ctrl + Alt + R on PC).
– Right-click on a specific word and select Research.

The research tool leverages Google search to provide recent information, alongside historical information. Quite impressive! So just check it out the new research tool in Google Docs.
