Material Design Comes To Google Docs, Sheets, & Slides


Google is rolling out a new look for their G Suite of apps today bringing their Material design to Google Docs, Sheets & Slides.

Beyond the updated look there are no functionality changes today. Google is merely bringing all the apps up to date with other Google only apps like Mail and Calender which were updated to the material design last year.



Users will find new control buttons, dialogues windows, and sidebars sporting a new look. There is also updated iconography which would make it easier for users to see even if they are on a smaller display.

The Material design update is currently active for all Google users and on by default for all Google Apps for Business users.
