The takeaways from the 9 week digital Google Cloud Next ’20 conference are industry specific for cloud computing and actionable. Нowever noise is less on standard news about Google’s most significant yearly event. The fact that thousand professionals from the technology industry from across the globe are not travelling to San Francisco is making this difference.
The Digital Event Google Cloud Next 20
Even if I have been attending Google Cloud Next 19 On Air before, it was actually a completely different event than the digital NEXT ’20. Before I would run the main stage streaming for hours on my computer.
Now, I have researched the program and added to my playlist the breakout sessions, digital demos and even 1:1 meeting with Google Experts I’m interested in. I would have done less being at the event’s location physically.
A digital event is not as spectacular as the performance, experience in celebrating the industry together with everyone involved at the premises, yet the messages reach each Google Cloud Customer or personal user in a very knowledge – focused way. Google’s straightforward approach to cloud customers and users changed the very Google!

Google Cloud Next’20: New Generation Gmail
“It’s too much” is what Google has been listening to related to information overload and too many tools to run and keep up with updating. The new generation G Mail comes to resolve this problem.
First, G Suite communications improvement is about an application already popular for billion people, such as G Mail. The better work together is based on managing the communication flow itself all in one as teams interact while texting, talking or during a video-conference. Users can get things done switching between Chat, Gmail, Meet and third party applications. You can’t loose tasks this way, can you? One can even block time for themselves as part of the communication flow.
