Previously available as an opt-in option, the new look for Google Docs and Sites is now rolling out to all rapid release domains. You’ll see clean menus and toolbars, prominent action buttons, and colorful presence that pops when you’re editing with others.
Some of the changes:
- We made it clearer that your document is always saved, by showing “Saving...” right after you make a change and then “All changes saved” once it’s fully saved.
- We added an icon to the Share button so you can tell if your document is shared at a glance.
- If you’re looking for options that were previously under the Share button (e.g. “Email as attachment...”), you can now find these in the File menu.
- By default, the documents list automatically fits a comfortable number of documents on your screen (large desktop monitors show more, smaller laptop screens show fewer). We also added density options to give you more control.
If you’re not quite ready for the new look, choose Help > Use the classic look (or in the gear menu, for some products). We’ll support the classic look for at least a few more weeks, but encourage you to use the new look.
