Material Design for Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Sites on Web

February 5, 2019

Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Sites will be getting a new look and feel on the web. According to Google, while there are no functionality changes, you will begin to notice some visual improvements starting February 11. Some of these changes include:

  • Interface typography that uses Google’s custom, legible typefaces
  • Controls (like buttons, dialogs, and sidebars) that are updated and more consistent with other Google products
  • Iconography that is legible and easy-to-read

The four products in this update join other G Suite products like Gmail and Calendar in sharing a common design and look.
