As it turns out, commenting wasn't all Google had in mind for Docs, Sheets, and Slides yesterday. The company is pushing out updates to the Android apps that add support for more document types.
In Docs, you can import .txt, .rtf, and .html. You can then export as .docx, .rtf, .pdf, .txt, or .html. In Sheets, you can open .csv or .tsv and export as .xlsx, .pdf, .html, .csv, and .tsv. Slides will let you save presentations as .pptx, .pdf, and .txt.
The apps are getting smarter. The Sheets Android app will offer to format your spreadsheet right-to-left if it notices that you're using a language such as Hebrew on your device. Once switched, columns will progress from right to left, and your row numbers will shift to the right side of the screen.
Sheets gained support for viewing filters created on the web in the previous Android app update. This release lets you create new ones from your mobile device and edit those that already exist.
Unlike server-side changes, this update is rolling out gradually. Downloading the latest version directly may help you, and fortunately we know precisely where you can look.
The APK is signed by Google and upgrades your existing app. The cryptographic signature guarantees that the file is safe to install and was not tampered with in any way. Rather than wait for Google to push this download to your devices, which can take days, download and install it just like any other APK.
