Google adds document editing, better comments and layout editing to Docs, Slides and Sheets

Docs - Slides - Sheets
Google has today announced that they’ve added some new editing functions to their Android office apps – Docs, Slides and Sheets.

The new features offer some improvements that should make your day to day life a little easier if you’re needing to edit your documents on the fly:

  • People can now edit document, spreadsheet, and presentation titles directly from the overflow menu in the top right corner of each app, making renaming files faster and simpler.

  • Within the Slides app, individuals can now change the layout of an existing slide to one of several predefined layouts, allowing them to update presentations on mobile more effectively.
  • People can now reply to comments when working in Office Compatibility Mode in the Docs app. In addition, when in OCM, suggestions and comments now appear in the Comments panel in the order they were made—rather than as all comments first and all suggestions second.

The updates will be rolling out through Google Play over the next few days, so keep an eye out for the update prompt.

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.
