Google Docs spreadsheets now have smart autocomplete

With remote work becoming more and more popular – including a promise for the “new normal” even after the end of the pandemic -, the trend is that software-as-a-service (software-as-a-service or SaaS) explode in popularity, precisely because they are cloud-based and can be accessed anywhere, from any device connected to the internet.

Precisely because of this, Google has been improving its Docs productivity suite more and more, adding features that make it as good as traditional software executed remotely. The novelty this time is the Smart Fill feature for Spreadsheets (Sheets in the original in English), rival to Excel; the tool is gradually being made available to G Suite / Workspace end users and corporate users.

Smart Fill is nothing more than a feature similar to Gmail’s Smart Compose: it uses artificial intelligence to analyze cell fill patterns in a spreadsheet and suggests autofill options based on the information you’re working on. In an example GIF from Google itself, the software automatically lists all emails from corporate users in a Workspace environment.

In addition, Smart Fill can also suggest content from the Google Information Map, answering questions such as “How tall is the Eiffel Tower?” and other knowledge that may be in any cell in the table. As we mentioned earlier, the feature is gradually being made available to all users, whether they are corporate or not – so if it is not yet available to you, just wait a few days.
