Google Docs Get Real-Time Comments

Google Wave may be dead but its legacy lives on.

The Mountain View-based company introduced a new feature on Google Docs that allows users to have real-time discussions within a document and invite new users to the conversation by email.

The comments show up on the right-hand side of the document and it includes timestamps and user names, similar to how Google Wave used to operate.

Users can also send comments to a Google Doc via email. Visually the system looks similar to notes on Word documents.

But it works more like a real-time instant message chat, without the speed.
