Additionally, this feature will not have an admin control and it will be available to not just Google Workspace but also G Suite Basic and Business customers with personal accounts. It will be slowly rolled from the end of April until May 2022.

Google Docs has been useful for many users who cannot afford to pay subscriptions for the same features from other apps. With it, you can create, edit, share, and print documents. Also, it features work, school, or personal documents templates along with a smooth collaboration feature with anyone with a Google Account.
