Last month Google announced it was dropping ‘web’ from its Google Web Fonts brand and today made their robust font collection available to download for the desktop via sync with SkyFonts.

The goal of Google Fonts has always been to bring beautiful, open-source fonts to the web, fast and free of cost. Starting today, you can download these fonts for offline access on your desktop. We’ve made all of the fonts from the Google Fonts directory available in SkyFonts, a tool from Monotype that allows you to install and sync fonts from the web onto your Windows or Mac OS X devices.

Google’s font collection includes a wide range of typography and features over 600 fonts. You can download the Google fonts for yourself here.
