Google Docs and Sheets will soon count against Drive storage, but the deadline is changing

Google had always been fairly generous with its cloud storage, but that policy finally started to change late last year.

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.
