The pane allows you to tap into a Google Search directly from Google documents to find additional information about a particular topic or idea.
In a blog post, this is how Google software engineer Sarveshwar Duddu explained how to use the feature:You can access the research pane from the Tools menu by right clicking on a selected word that you want to learn more about, or by pressing Ctrl+Alt+R on Windows or Cmd+Alt+R onMac.
In addition to more than 200 updates to its core apps suite, Google has also added 450 new fonts and 60 new templates, let users save their Gmail messages as Google Docs, and upped the program’s storage to 5GB.
With all of these new interactive features, it may be hard for Microsoft Word to keep its grip on the word processing market.
