Google Docs Improved, Will this Affect Wave?

A new version of Google Documents is now on its transition process and a list of better features are presented to the public for a more developed data management. Here are a few to mention:

Real-time collaboration

In this new addition, users are allowed to see updates from other collaborators as they do changes or editing in a specific document on a real-time basis. This feature is very helpful especially in situations when problems occur.

Higher quality imports

There is a better consistency of importing from a desktop into Google Docs. Scanning through files is no longer a hassle.

Communication through Chat

This is the most exciting part with the new version of Google Docs. As a user makes changes, he or she can communicate with other collaborators through the use of chat within the document itself.

Ruler

Google documents have a ruler for setting margins, indentations, and tab stops.

These improved features above make Google Docs a lot more fun to use, however, many might be asking now if this innovation will affect Wave.

Is this going to be good for wave or will this mean that wave is no longer up for use? Or, does this mean Google Docs will gain better advantage over wave when it comes to collaboration?

Despite of these uncertainties, what’s good about this is that there are still remarkable differences between the two. One to point out is Docs doesn’t have the ability to work with robots which Wave is capable of doing.

Many might suggest that it may possibly be more interesting if Docs becomes a client of Wave. This way, collaborators can edit documents using Wave or vice versa, which really makes integration and work collaboration easier and faster.
