Google is introducing new features to Sheets, which will be released in the upcoming weeks. Following the recent addition of emoji reactions to comments in Google Docs, Google has now announced that this feature will also be available in Google Sheets. According to Google, this update aims to enhance collaboration by allowing users to express their opinions on spreadsheet content in a quick and creative manner. It adds a touch of fun to the typically mundane process of providing feedback.

To add emoji reactions to comments in Google Sheets, users simply need to hover their mouse over the desired comment and click on “Add emoji reaction.” They can then choose an emoji from the available options or use search terms to find a specific one. However, it’s important to note that users can only add emoji reactions if they have the necessary permission to comment or edit the document.

In addition to the emoji reactions feature, Google has also introduced support for two new field types for filtering in Connected Sheets for Looker: field only fields and parameters. These updates are currently being rolled out for Rapid Release domains, but the emoji reactions in Google Sheets will only become available to Scheduled Release domains starting on October 19.

All the new features mentioned in this update will be accessible to Google Workspace customers and users with personal Google Accounts. This ensures that a wide range of individuals can take advantage of these enhancements to improve their productivity and collaboration within the Google Sheets platform.
