Google continues to develop their suite of Office-like apps, Google Docs, Google Sheets and Google Slides, and the latest update to the web, Android and iOS versions of the app are all aimed at improving collaboration on files.

highlight a piece of text. When you highlight that text, on the right you will now see a comment bubble pop up. Click on it and add your comments about that portion of the text. Want to add someone to collaborate on the document, just start typing in their name and it will popular their email address in the comments and will send them an email notifying them. They can then add comments to the document too, bringing teams together in a more efficient way as everyone is working from the same, literal, page.
