The text editor now allows users to insert Google Maps chip (opens in a new tab) directly in your document with the increasingly useful @ menu.
In the future, Google Docs users just have to type the @ symbol followed by the location or address they want to include to add the Google Maps map view to their document.

The office software makes it easy to add emoticons to work by allowing users to search for and insert symbols directly into the text.
Users will now just have to type “@” followed by a term, emotion, object, or whatever else they need to bring up a popup menu of emoticons. In addition, users can also type “@:” or “:” to view a drop-down list of emoticons and the option to go to the entire emoticon catalog.
