Material Design for Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Sites on Web
Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Sites will be getting a new look and feel on the web. While there are no functionality changes, users will notice some visual improvements, including:
- Interface typography that uses Google’s custom-designed and highly-legible typefaces
- Controls (like buttons, dialogs, and sidebars) that are updated and consistent
- Iconography that is legible and crisp, with a fresh feel
The four products in this update join other G Suite products like Gmail and Calendar in sharing a common design language.
Why you’d use it
This style change is part of a new, consistent design approach from Google. You can expect to see similar changes across other G Suite applications in the future.
How to get started
- Admins: No action needed
- End users: You’ll see the new look coming your way.
