link previews and Smart Compose

What’s changing 

We’re improving the Android and iOS experiences for Google Docs users with two new features. These were previously available on the web, and are now available on mobile as well: 

  • Link previews, which help you get context from linked content without bouncing between apps and screens. 
  • Smart Compose, which helps you write faster and with more confidence. 

Who’s impacted

Why it’s important 

Together, these features will help make it easier and quicker not only to read and review content on mobile devices, but also to create and collaborate on content, wherever you are. 

Additional details 

Link previews 

Linked content can enrich documents with useful information, but if clicking a link means opening another window, that can be distracting and disrupt your reading flow.

Earlier this year, we launched link previews on the web. Now, we’re adding link previews to mobile as well. When you click on a link in Docs, dynamic information about the content will appear. This may include the title, description, and thumbnail images from public web pages, or the owner and latest activity for linked Drive files. This can help you decide whether to open linked content while staying in-context.
