If you’re currently on Google Apps or even have a personal gmail account, you are probably well aware that long, inconvenient software updates are a thing of the past.
One of my favorite aspects of Google Apps is that updates no longer require me to exit out of my window, and there’s definitely no need to shutdown and restart my computer in order to complete an installation. Instead, Google introduces small changes frequently over time and all I need to do to see them is to refresh my page. Their updates never interfere with my productivity, and in fact, improve my efficiency.
Do you ever find yourself having to learn a whole new interface with every update? If you’re on board with Google, then I’m guessing your answer is no. For the rest of you, say farewell to the time spent by both you and your team every couple years or even months trying to navigate an entirely new system. Google never lets you fall behind!
Google’s updates are valuable to me as a user. They focus on functionality beyond just the look of the display and make already simple actions even easier.

Other than following The Official update feed from the Google Apps Team, Google holds live webinars once a month to discuss new features that have recently been released in Google Apps for Business. Can’t find time on Wednesday’s? Here’s the archive of anything you missed!
Google’s pace of innovation directly affects those who use their products. Just when I think I can’t get any more productive, Google will discover a way that makes sending an email or sharing a document even easier. The day that update is released, is the day I work faster, smarter, and more efficient. I don’t need to wait until next year for a brand new software update. With Google, I am always using the latest technology.
