Google Docs and Google Drive are testing an electronic signature feature
Google has announced the launch of open beta testing of electronic signature in Workspace. This is reported on the company's blog.
The new feature will be available in Google Docs and Google Drive for individual and group accounts. With an electronic signature, service users will be able to sign documents without having to print them out in paper form.
"To simplify the workflow, we initially integrated eSignature into Google Docs, which will allow users to request and add signatures to official documents directly in the cloud service," the company said.
Google plans to launch additional features for eSignature in the future, including the ability for multiple users to sign documents, the ability to request eSignature from non-Gmail users, and the ability to sign PDF documents.
Over the next 15 days, the company will introduce the new feature free of charge to a limited number of Workspace users. Users from different groups can participate in the beta testing of the new feature if their administrators apply for it.
