Weekly Update - November 28, 2020: Hangouts, Meet, YouTube

This week there are updates to classic Hangouts and Meet, new features being tested on YouTube, and more for YouTubers, business owners, web creators, and social media mavens.

I posted a couple tutorials:

Google’s Recorder app now has machine learning based “Smart Scrolling” that marks important sections of the transcript and highlights keywords as you scroll.
Google Contacts is now available in Gmail on the web. You will also be able to see your email history with them. Google Workspace customers can see additional information like office and desk location. (It may take a couple weeks for this to be available in your account)
You can now edit Microsoft Office files in the iOS Google Docs, Slides and Sheets apps.This feature is already available on Android and the web. This replaces Quickoffice.
