Google’s suite of office apps on Google Drive have been rebranded from Documents, Spreadsheets and Presentations, to Docs, Sheets and Slides. I know… why the rebranding? Maybe because they’re all now in Google Drive and that confuses users?!
According to Google’s official blog post about the change they had this to say:
To make it even easier for you to create stuff quickly, Documents, Spreadsheets, and Presentations–now called Docs, Sheets, and Slides–are now available as apps in the Chrome Web Store. Once installed, shortcuts to these apps will appear when you open a new tab in Chrome.
If you’re a Chromebook user these will show up in your directory by default when the next Chrome OS update rolls out in November. Beyond that I can’t think of any reason that they’ve renamed these… except that Google DRIVE is confusing to end users. Oddly, prior to being Google Drive this was all called Google Docs… which ya know… made sense. The apps are available for Chrome now: Docs, Sheets and Slides.
