Similar to the cross-reference feature of Word, how can I insert a cross-reference to a figure in Google Docs?
With my new Docs add-on, Cross Reference.
It's still in its infancy, but I will be adding more features and fixing some bugs shortly.

This may be a new feature but you can now add a link to a heading (right click pick link then click heading and scroll down to the relevant one)
Not sure it works exactly equivalent to Word's feature but it's something.

Let's say you want to add a link to chapter 10 in table of contents (TOC).
Step 1 . Go to chapter 10. Select title, Select Insert option in menu. Insert bookmark.
Step 2. Go to table of contents page. Select text referring to chapter 10. From the menu, select Insert. Insert Link. Then select Bookmarks from the new menu that appears. Selcet bookmark specific to chapter 10. Done!
You can also edit the link text.
You can apply similar method to cross-reference images.

I think the most similar way to achieve this is to create a bookmark and reference it whenever need it.
Insert bookmark before Table 1.
Bookmark can be inserted from menu Insert > Bookmark
Go to the place where you want to refer Table 1
This is not ideal, after all you have to type "Table 1" twice. But it does allow user to navigate within the document. Therefore somehow similar to cross reference.

At this time Google Docs doesn't have the cross-reference feature.
The above is based on my personal experience with Google Docs and that there is nothing relevant to cross-reference features on the official documentation. To find the official documentation, go the link on the references section.
