Google Docs, Google Sheets and Google Slides all have an update rolling out in the Play Store for Android. The update brings the normal raft of bug fixes and performance improvements but also has some new editing tools.
There are new toolbar items will allow you to more easily format tables, images and drawings within your Docs, Sheets or Slide documents. The editing features are tools that have been on the web-based versions of the apps so these updates bring feature parity between the platforms.
The updates across all three apps are the same and all bring these same editing features to images, tables and drawing so
regardless of which one you happen to be using at the time, you will have the same editing toolsets across all of them.
The new builds are hitting the Google Play Store now and for those who have the apps installed your Android devices, you should see the OTA updates over the course over the next few days.
For those of you who don’t have them installed, you can download them from the Play Store. Keep in mind that the apps leverage Google Drive for storage and if you store files in the native Docs, Sheets and Slides format, they do not count against your Drive quota. You can edit Microsoft Excel, Word and PowerPoint documents with these apps too (although not all features are available).
