Google Docs, Sheets and Slides Get Updated With Several New Features
If you’re into productivity features offered by Google, I’m sure you’re familiar with Google Docs, Sheets and Slides. These 3 apps got updated this week, with some important features added. For example, you get support for opening and editing Microsoft Office files directly inside these apps.
You can also suggest edits for other users’ documents, that can be accepted or rejected. A good piece of news is that you can access and create Docs, Sheets and Slides without a data connection. Users can also crop images and add borders in Docs, Slides and Drawings, plus connect images in Slides and Drawings, as well as recolor, change opacity and add effects in Slides.
One can type an asterisk in Docs and Slides to automatically convert into a bullet now and there’s the possibility to copy and paste charts between Spreadsheets in Slides, after the update. People with sight impairment will get an easier screen reader use, with better text to voice verbalization and improved keyboard navigation. The updates are rolling out right now and you can get the fresh Docs here, fresh Sheets here and new Slides here.
