Out of Office Information Will Now Display When Replying to or Mentioning a User in a Google Docs Comment
Google Workspace Updates | In Google Docs, you’ll now see out of office information when replying to or mentioning other users in a comment. When mentioning a single user in a new comment or thread, you’ll see the OOO banner and information on when they plan to return.

Control Background Replacement in Google Meet With a New Admin Setting
Google Workspace Updates | Google is adding the ability for admins to enable or disable the use of custom or preset backgrounds in Google Meet for meetings organized by an organizational unit (OU) level. The setting will determine whether meeting participants can change their background when joining a meeting.
