Whenever there’s an update to apps that you use often, whether it’s a major overhaul or just minor things, we always get excited. No? It’s just us? Okay, maybe excited may be too big a word, but it’s always nice to see changes and improvements yes? This week, we have some minor changes for Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides, while Google Forms now has the new version as the default option.

Previously, if you wanted to turn off the notifications for whenever someone shared a file with you or requests access for a file, you would have to go to Google Drive’s settings itself. But now, with the latest update for Docs, Sheets, and Slides, you can do so as well in the Settings menu of each of the apps. That way, you won’t be flooded with notifications in case there is a lot of file sharing and requesting going around in your office. As for Sheets, you can now view the named ranges and go to their locations in the app itself instead of just the web version.

The New Google Forms has been in existence since September last year, but it was just opt-in previously since Google was still experimenting with it. But now that additional features and functionality have been added, the new version has now become the default option when you create your Forms. But if you’re still used to the old one, you can still opt out and use what you’re used to.

The updates to all these Google apps have rolled out but gradually. So expect it to fully reach all users in around 3 days.
