Google Docs get discussions and email integration

March 16, 2011: 12:27 PM ET

The collaborative abilities of Google's office products keep getting more robust.

In a Blog post today, Google (GOOG) announced that Docs will now have fullly integrated discussions ability.

Today, we're updating comments in Google Docs to facilitate rapid and seamless discussions and integrate with email in an intuitive way. Since there are a number of significant improvements, this update is only available for newly created documents for now.

Think of it as annotations on steroids.  As per usual, Google has a video that explains the new functionality much better than I can.

It sure beats passing around documents in email.
