Google Docs is upgrading its comment feature to make co-editing and collaboration easier for users.

The cloud-based word-processing software, which allows users to view and edit documents together, will add a blue dot to new comments from another user. When a user hovers over the blue dot, the badge will read "New."

As part of the update, users will be able to filter comments and sort them by “For you,” “All comments” or “Resolved.”

"We hope these improvements make collaboration easier by enabling you to quickly navigate to and take action on important comments and conversations," reads a Google Workspace Updates blog post.
