Google jus announced that it is finally adding mobile comments to Docs, Sheets and Slides.

The announcement came in the form of a cute little anecdote about chocolate cake. From the Google Docs Blog:

When Jim, one of the engineers on the Google Slides team, brought a zucchini chocolate cake into the office last week, we knew we had to get the recipe. So we asked him and his wife, Alison, to let us in on the family secret—just in time for Chocolate Cake Day. They worked together in Slides (mobile commenting across Google Docs just launched today!) to perfect the recipe. Alison writes:

Growing up, my grandma made zucchini chocolate cake often, especially when there was a surplus of zucchinis at the local farmer’s market. The cake is ridiculously moist and pairs well with many different frostings, though cream cheese is my favorite. Thanks to mobile commenting, Jim and I went back and forth on the recipe—Jim on his Nexus 9, me on my iPhone—until we had it just right.

The scenario is even demonstrated in a video so you can see how the functionality works.

Google gives an overview of comments and discussions in the Docs editors help center here.
