Google Docs suite updated with a few handy new features

Google is updating Docs, Slides and Sheets with a few new features including real-time spellcheck and more.

Published onJanuary 21, 2015

Google Drive and Docs have come a long ways over the years, and in 2014 Google even unbundled its Drive apps for Android, allowing folks to grab only the apps they actually plan on using. Now with the latest update to Google Doc Suite updates rolling out today, the experience is getting even better.

The latest versions of Docs, Sheets and Slides now support more advanced features including real-time spell checking for Docs, the ability to hide rows and columns in spreadsheets, and the grouping of shapes in presentations for Slides.Google is also pushing improved security with Touch ID support for our iOS-using friends, and better support for screen-reading services like TalkBack for those with low vision.

Google says the updates will be rolling out sometime later today, though we’ve yet to get our hands on an APK yet. Of course, don’t be surprised if it takes a few days before the update arrives to your device. For those that have already received updates for the Google Docs Suite, we’d love it if you shared the APK files and encourage you to share them with us through our Contacts page.
