Google Drive’s spreadsheet maker renamed Sheets, gets offline support & speed improvements

Google Drive has always had a way to make, edit, and manage spreadsheets, and today, the software has received significant upgrades. The web application, now known as Google Sheets, now has the ability to work offline. This is a significant addition for those who need to be productive without an internet connection. Additionally, Sheets has gained significant speed and performance improvements that allow content to load more quickly. The app can now also crunch even more cells and data simultaneously…

New filter and calculation views have also been added. “Filter views is a new feature unique to Google Sheets that lets you quickly name, save and share different views of your data. This comes in handy when you’re collaborating so you can sort a spreadsheet without affecting how others see it,” Google writes on its official blog. Improved text flowing and function help modes. “Whether you’re new to formulas or a wiz at running complex functions, it’s now easier to set up and perform calculations. New function help and examples guide you as you type, and error highlighting and coloring make it easy to spot and fix mistakes,” Google says.
