Google Docs Gets Updated Citation Feature

Google has released an update to Google Docs, updating the citation tool to "streamline the citations process, ensure correct formatting, and reduce the chances of manual errors."

The updated citation feature, accessible from the Tools menu, allows users to search cited materials and automatically format them for MLA, APA and Chicago styles. Searches can be conducted for online articles using a URL and for printed books using ISBN.

The new feature will be available to all Google Workspace users, as well and G Suite Basic and Business users and users with individual Google accounts.

The updated feature rollout began today to rapid release domains, with the full rollout expected to be concluded in late November to early December.
