Google Drive's redesigned Material You widget sure does look weird

Google Drive's redesigned Material You widget sure does look weird

Part of Google's Material You design philosophy is a renewed focus on widgets, revitalizing a stale look that has plagued the platform for years.

Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides now supports embedding Office files in other Office documents

Just because you've made the switch to using Google's productivity apps doesn't mean everyone else has.

Google Sheets can now auto-suggest the formulas you always forget

It's been more than two years since Google acknowledged Drive spam is a real issue with the service, and we've been patiently waiting for any action to be taken.
