The new Cloud Search provides G Suite, both comprehensive search and proactive recommendations using the best of Google Search and machine intelligence like, when Cloud Search app is open on a phone or laptop, “all the information relevant is organized into simple cards or ‘Assist cards'” as Google put it, “are designed to be timely and relevant and help you prepare for an upcoming meeting or even suggest files that need attention.”
Later as the company said, more assist cards to Cloud Search will be adding over time.
