Free collaboration app from Google
Currents is a free software developed by Google for internal enterprise communication. It is one of the many products that the software giant offers to G Suite users. The app enables discussions and interactions across organizations while you are in the office or on the go. With this, you and your team can exchange ideas, as well as documents, without flooding your email inbox. The app lets you organize the content by relevance or time, to make sure that the most important one comes first. Note, however, that the app is only available to G Suite customers.
Out with the old, in with the new
The Currents app is Google’s replacement for Google+. However, it is entirely unrelated to the now-defunct Google app. Whereas Google+ provides you with access to electronic libraries of magazines, Currents will let you seamlessly communicate with your team. It helps you keep everyone in the know. If you are a leader of an organization, it will give you the chance to connect with your employees.
Currents has a new look streamlined for faster and easier posting of content and tagging it to anyone. Content posted by top executives can be given priority to ensure that all employees see it. You can also organize your content using the app’s home stream. This feature ranks all posts by relevance, so important topics remain visible. Users can also follow tags on topics or search for specific information using the search function. Plus, Currents comes with key metrics, helping admins and users measure the engagement and find valuable insights.
On top of the new white interface, Currents also offers a few other features. Google will give announcements through the app—plus, there will also be fun-based things like pets and wellness. There will also be post analytics, which allows the breakdown of views, reshares, likes, and comments on your posts. With Currents, all Google+ collections will be removed and all posts within them will be grouped with a system-generated tag.
With Currents, business organizations will have a better way to engage employees. This social networking app offers a simple way to communicate with an entire team, building a more productive community. You can share ideas and get instant feedback. With this, you can learn from each other. If you are looking for a way to connect with your team, no matter where you are, this app is worth a try.
