Google Rolls Out New Updates for Google Docs, Slides, and Sheets Apps
Google has today announced a bunch of mobile enhancements to the Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides apps in an effort to make it even easier to view and collaborate on content while you’re on the move. The company is also rolling out Dark theme support for Docs, Sheets, and Slides apps on Android, with iOS support coming later.
Breeze through Slides presentations: There’s a new viewing experience in Slides with a vertically scrollable stream of slides that you can pinch-to-zoom. This new view helps you review slides faster, and you can easily switch to editing or presenting content.
Stay focused when reading in Docs: When you click on a link in Docs, you’ll see a card with dynamic information about the content, such as the owner and latest activity for Drive files, or titles and descriptions of public links, along with a visual thumbnail.
Easily edit Microsoft Office files: Office editing brings the collaborative and assistive features of G Suite to your Office files and eliminates the need to convert file types. Google will be rolling out Office editing to Docs, Sheets, and Slides mobile apps on Android in the coming weeks, with iOS to follow later this year.
Write faster and with fewer errors, in Docs: Google is bringing the power of Smart Compose to mobile, making it even faster and easier to write documents on the go. Smart Compose in Docs will roll out to G Suite customers over the next few weeks, on both Android and iOS.
