Google Apps Update Alert




Posted: 15 Dec 2014 09:58 PM PST
New versions of the Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides apps for Android are now available on Google Play.

The Docs app now has line spacing controls that let you choose single, double or fractional line spacing, the Sheets app has new scrollbars for faster navigation, and the Slides app now supports inserting, moving, resizing, and rotating text boxes, shapes, and lines.

All three apps are now even friendlier with Office files with easier file creation and other updates, and we’ve added better accessibility options.

Release track:
Rapid release and Scheduled release

Get the Google DocsSheets, and Slides apps on Google Play

Currently, when composing an email in Gmail, people have the option to share Google documents and other files stored in Drive via links by clicking on the ‘Insert files using Drive’ button.

With this launch, we’ll enable the option to share files in Drive as attachments, allowing the file owner to remove the source file from Drive if so desired, without needing to worry about also removing access to the file from recipients.

When clicking on ‘Insert files using Drive,’ you’ll now see the buttons below in the lower right corner of the insert window. Clicking the Attachment button will add your selected file as an attachment. Inserting files as Drive links will be the default option:

Notes: 

  • This feature only applies to files that weren't created in Drive (so Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, etc will not work)
  • Gmail attachments have a 25MB limit

Release track:
Rapid release, with Scheduled release coming in early January 2015
