Weekly Update - April 13, 2019: Cloud Next, Hangout Chat & Meet, Currents

This week was Google Cloud Next ‘19, a three day conference showcasing updates and features for G Suite, Google Cloud Platform, developers, businesses, and educators. It’s both promotional - look who’s using Google Cloud! - and informational. I was particularly interested in the updates for communication and collaboration, including Google Docs, Google+, Voice, Hangouts Meet and Chat. But that’s not all - there are updates this week for YouTubers, webmasters and more.
Read on for more updates for businesses, YouTubers, webmasters and more.

  1. As can be seen by developments related by the posts on the principal problem with "Currents" is its failure to provide for any kind of window to the world outside the organization. With Currents, GSuite members cannot even communicate with other GSuite members! For the time being, we on GSuite are still communicating with each other using our old G+, but it is unlikely that will last much longer.

    1. Interesting you can still communicate with a few folks on the plus. I think Currents is really something different from Google+ - like you say, it's not meant for anything other than internal communication. The demo actually looks pretty nice for that at least.

    2. I agree. I'm still monitoring developments and posting on while exploring Twitter, Facebook, MeWe, etc. Still a bit fuzzy about what's going on!

  2. Repected Mam,

    1. Hi Nikhil, I don't know how long it usually takes. My guess would be at least a week, and maybe as long as a month. For social media I'm mostly also on Twitter: @peggyktc.
