Google Docs adds a ‘new’ badge to unread comments so they …

Google is adding a new badge to unread comments in Docs on the Web, marked with a blue dot. As they hover over them, they expand to show the word ‘new’ (see below). When you click on a comment to indicate that it has been addressed, the badge disappears.

In the comment history, a new filtering option is added, which allows you to display comments that are directly addressed to you, comments that are marked as resolved, and all comments unfiltered.

Both of these new additions should help users quickly navigate new discussions in larger documents with ease – especially in the midst of the pandemic, where many more people might be working together on a document or at least working on one more often, these are welcome changes! Neither administrators nor end users need to do anything to get these new features to appear and start using them – well, just wait.

Fast release domains should start seeing both new tools over the next two weeks, while scheduled release domains will have to wait a little longer – two weeks from March 15, 2020. Oh, and guess what? This will also be available to regular Google Account users! It’s always a good day when Google is rolling out Workspace tools to ordinary people at the same time.
