After the Docs update rolled out this morning, it appears Sheets is getting the same love from Google, with an update rolling out to Android devices bringing an L style makeover and Excel compatibility.

With the introduction of Excel compatibility, the update removes the last piece of usefulness which Quick Office still had over Sheets. Like the Docs update, the Sheets update includes many new features as well as the Excel ability, including : Charts, the ability to create and edit Excel docs, the ability to see the difference between Excel and Sheets files, open locally stored files, ability to send files as Excel, formula lists and the ability to drag to select and auto-fill cells.

Like the Docs overview, it also has an L-style makeover, which will be refined as Google moves towards an official L release. The visual changes for Sheets include :

  • Fewer persistent icons in action bar
  • Floating new document button
  • New account selection drop-down style
  • New details page
  • New editing UI

There’s screenshots over at Android Police to check out and you can check their page for an APK download as well, or wait for the update to rollout to your device over the next week or so.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.
