Here's what Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides upcoming dark theme might look like on Android

According to a recent teardown by our friends at 9to5Google, the Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides Android apps may be gearing up to add dark theme support. And it won't just be for the main document-browsing UI, we're talking full-on dark theme in their respective document editors, too (though not in the case of Slides). Even better, screenshots of the change in Google Docs have been published by @Alex193a, so we can see what it will look like in action when it does eventually land. Now we just have to hope this comes to the web versions as well.

Sharing Google Drive files and Docs is getting easier (and prettier)

Google is tweaking the way the sharing dialog in its G Suite services will look. The change, which affects things like Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, and Slides, has a more "task-focused" interface, separating link-based sharing from targeted contact sharing. In short, it should be a bit easier to use, shows more information at a glance — like who you've shared something with and what their permissions are — and generally offers a more friendly look. (It's also much prettier.)

Latest Material Design for Docs, Sheets, and Slides rolling out to G Suite accounts

Back in June, Google began rolling out new Material Design looks to Docs, Sheets, and Slides. It took a couple months for that roll-out to hit the wider public, but most Gmail accounts now have it. We say "most accounts" because it's rare for general users of Google's services to come in lockstep with what G Suite account holders are experiencing. Now, we're learning that G Suite users will see the fresh styling on those three apps.

Google Docs gets new fonts to improve reading speed, so now everyone can reject your screenplay much faster

Today Google has announced that Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides have access to a small pile of new "Lexend" family of fonts meant to make reading a bit easier. Based on a bit of research which claims that character size, spacing, and stretch can enhance understanding if customized to reading speed, the new fonts come in eight different widths from "Zetta" to "Deca."

Google Sheets introduces Slicers, Scorecards, and Themes for more effective data visualization

Google Sheets is a handy tool for tabulating and working on data, especially since it's cross-platform and free to use. While it doesn't yet match the functionality of Microsoft Excel, it has been consistently picking up new features every month — from deduplication and trimming of whitespace to enhanced formatting tools. Today, the Sheets team announced three new data reporting tools that can help get you closer to a dashboard running only on Google Sheets.

Google docs '.new' domain shortcuts now let you easily switch accounts

If you haven't already used the ".new" domain shortcuts with Google's G Suite services like Docs, Sheets, or Slides, you're missing out. The feature allows you to quickly and easily create a new blank document (or spreadsheet, or presentation, etc.) without all the tedium of navigating Google Drive to open one. The only real disadvantage was they would previously only open a new document under your current primary Google account, but now you can append a number (i.e., docs.new/2) to open a new blank document under a different account listed in the switcher.
