A new version of Gmail for G Suite has apparently leaked, and reveals a plan to integrate a range of Google products under one roof. According to the leaked pictures, Google will roll Chats, Meet, Docs, and Rooms all into the workplace Gmail app. The change would allow users to simultaneously collaborate on documents and video chat without leaving the app. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Google could be about to reveal a new version of Gmail for G Suite users that brings Google Chat, Docs, Meet, and Rooms all under one roof. Google recently integrated Meet into Gmail – an apparent effort to fend off the growing popularity of Zoom – but its next move would turn its workplace version of Gmail into an all-out productivity powerhouse. The images of the update were dug up by developer Tahin Rahman, who posted them to Twitter and claims to have found them on Google's Cloud Next website. Android Police first picked up on Rahman's tweets. The pictures, which appear to be slides for an upcoming presentation, show tabs for Google Chat, Meet, and Rooms along the bottom of the Gmail app, and in the sidebar of the web app. Further pictures reveal users will be able to collaborate on documents inside the app, while running video and text chats all inside the same window. Another slide reveals that you'll also get reminders to respond to chat messages, much like Gmail does right now. The integrated collaboration tools could be a big boon for Google, which is battling Slack and Microsoft for dominance in the workplace. In January, The Information reported that Google was working on a "unified" communications app for businesses. The question is whether of these features might make their way to the standard version of Gmail too. Google did not immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment.

At Google Cloud Next, Google Cloud announced it will work with customers like Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, Verizon, Fox Sports, and the French auto company Renault. Previously, Google Cloud had said it would triple its salesforce over the next few years. Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian had said that it plans to specialize in going after customers in specific verticals like finance and telecommunications. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. When Google Cloud CEO Thomas Kurian took over the company, he made it clear that one of its goals would be to go after customers in specific verticals like finance, telecommunications, and more. And previously, Google Cloud announced plans to triple its salesforce over the next few years, including hiring salespeople specializing in specific industries.  Now, Google Cloud is making headway on this front, attracting customers in more traditional industries. At its virtual Google Cloud Next conference, the company announced partnerships with Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, Verizon, Fox Sports, and the French auto company Renault.  A big part of this was introducing its hybrid cloud product Anthos last year, which allows customers to run their applications on both private data centers, Google Cloud, and even other clouds like AWS. For industries like finance and government, having that option is crucial because of current regulations on how sensitive data can be stored.  Google Cloud announced on July 7 that it will sign a multi-year contract with Deutsche Bank to move its services to the cloud. Google has also nabbed Goldman Sachs as a customer and while the details are thin on what the two are working on, the company was featured in Kurian's keynote on Tuesday. Similarly, Google had already been making moves in the finance sector by working with KeyBank to use its product Anthos.  Read more: 195-year-old KeyBank explains how a partnership with Google Cloud is helping it build software faster and even take better advantage of Microsoft's and Amazon's clouds too "We have hybrid and multi-cloud support across the board with our customers," Kirsten Kliphouse, president of North America at Google Cloud, said in a press call. "We don't want them to be locked into one cloud provider, and they're looking to Google to make sure that they don't do that." More customer wins for Google Cloud Previously, Google Cloud had said that its next big focus would be to go after the telecommunications market. On Monday, it announced a partnership with Verizon to use its Contact Center AI product, which provides support to customers using conversational AI tools and analyzes customer service interactions so that they can be improved.  Outside of Telecom, Google Cloud also announced a partnership with Renault and Fox Sports to use its artificial intelligence products. For example, these services will help Renault with its supply chain operations and Fox Sports with labeling and storing video content. Already, Google Cloud had been boasting of its large enterprise customers, such working with the retailer Lowe's, particularly during the coronavirus pandemic when traffic is going up for the e-commerce business, and a 10-year partnership with the travel technology company Sabre to automate its flight reservation systems. It says other retail customers include Target and eBay. At its last earnings call in late April, Google Cloud announced that it generated $2.8 billion in revenue this past quarter, up 52% from the year before.  Although Google's advertising business had taken a hit during the coronavirus pandemic and Google Cloud was facing delays in building data centers and closing large deals, analysts called Google Cloud one of the company's "bright spots."

Today Instagram launched an app called Reels, a direct alternative to the mega-popular music-based video social network TikTok.While TikTok has the youth market on lock, Instagram hopes to steal a bit of the pie with an as-easy-as-possible entry point for those users who already have an Instagram account.This system is currently only listed as the app “Cenas”, and will eventually appear as “Insta Reels.”The reason the app is only listed thus far as “Cenas” is its Brazil-centric launch.Much like other social network offshoots of this sort, Instagram is doing a sort of test run.With the first wave in Brazil, Instagram will be able to gauge the popularity and usability of the app without millions of users around the world attempting to flip all the switches at once, so to speak.

Apple may not have launched the 16-inch MacBook Pro in October when some projections had expected it to show up.But, with that timeline passed, 2020 is looking more likely, and it may currently be in production according to IDC Analyst Jitesh Ubrani, Forbes reports.Explaining the signs that the 16-inch MacBook Pro was still coming, Ubrani said, "We're also starting to see early signs of this from the supply chain.However, the timing of this is still uncertain."This would suggest that a November launch date of this year may also be too soon to hope for.Forbes also reported that a source in Asia said production was indeed underway.

Walmart recently patted itself on the back for reaching what it called a “grocery pickup milestone,” with 2,000 stores in 29 states now including alcohol as part of their online grocery offerings.The retailer can also include alcohol in deliveries from nearly 200 stores in California and Florida “with more being added in accordance with local and state regulations.”Online grocery is already a wildly competitive and experimental space with retailers keen to attract consumers and cement their loyalty as the sector grows.But when you factor in booze—and the state and local laws that regulate it—we get another reminder why no one has come up with a blanket solution that works across all 50 states.Why booze is problematic for retailersAccording to Megan MacDonald, senior marketplace channel analyst at digital marketing agency Tinuiti, expanding into booze is costly for retailers, as many states mandate that alcohol can only be sold by liquor stores and bottle shops—and/or businesses require separate licenses to sell beer/wine and liquor.
