Google Apps Want To Go Home


Over the summer Google made some changes to how the file type icon (the colorful rectangle we see in me up or left corner of Google Docs) behaves in Google Docs, Google sheets, and Google slides. These changes make the desktop version of these applications behave more like the mobile apps that they are related to. The screencast below explores the changes made to these icons and the changes and functionality in the Google drive productivity Apps. I think this will make switching between the mobile version and the desktop version of Google Drive and the Google Apps for Education much easier in the long run.
