Google has added two new ways that make it easier to find comments that require your attention and action in Google Docs on the web.

New comment activity since the last time you viewed a document will be “badged” with a blue dot. Additionally, when you hover over the blue dot, you’ll see a “New” banner.

A blue dot emphasizes the new comment activity since the last time you viewed the document.
 

In the Comments history dialog, Google added new filtering options. You can sort comments by: “For you”, “All comments”, or “Resolved”.
