Google removes boredom from spreadsheets with Smart Fill, an AI-driven feature that automatically retrieves and populates data based on context. Smart Fill was first announced by Google in June and will be launched to all Sheets users on November 5th.
In Google̵7;s words, Smart Fill makes data entry “faster and less prone to error.” When you fill in columns, sheets will automatically detect patterns and complement the rest of the column automatically for you. For example, if you have a column full of addresses and another column for zip codes, Smart Fill looks for appropriate zip codes and asks for your permission to enter them automatically.
Smart Fill can also retrieve data from Google Knowledge Graph or your contact list. Business customers using Google Workspace can use Smart Fill to automatically retrieve data from the company’s address book.
Google is now launching Smart Fill for Sheets. The company says that all users, including corporate customers and free accounts, will have Smart Fill by November 5th.
