New features in the Google Docs and Sheets mobile apps

The latest releases of the Google Docs and Sheets mobile apps include the following new features:
  • Print Layout view in Google Docs for Android and iOS (Beta) - You can now select Print Layout from the overflow menu in the top right corner of the Docs app on Android and iOS to see a fully paginated, read-only version of your document. While you can’t make edits in that view, the document itself will be updated in real-time when collaborators make changes to it. This feature is currently in beta; additional functionality, including the ability to edit in Print Layout view, will roll out in the future.
  • Autofill in Google Sheets for Android - Using the autofill feature, it’s easy to repeat information or complete a pattern in a Sheets spreadsheet on the web. This launch brings that same functionality to the Sheets app for Android. Simply select the data you want to repeat, as well as the cells where you want to repeat that data. Tap the selected data again to open a menu, and then select Autofill to automatically populate those cells.
  • More intuitive keyboard functionality in Google Sheets for Android - Previously, when a user clicked into a cell, the Sheets Android app would automatically open the alphabetic keyboard—regardless of whether that cell contained text or numeric values. Going forward, the app will launch the alphabetic keyboard when the cell contains text and the numeric keyboard when the cell contains numbers or symbols. It will also offer an easy way to shift between the two keyboard options.
