Google’s Workspace apps, including Drive, Docs, Sheets, and Slides, are getting a new look in the next weeks as the tech firm refreshes its design.

The new look is based on the company’s Material Design 3.

Moreover, the company is providing a range of new functionality to its Workspace apps with new smart chips. A new search chip will allow users to filter files easily on Google Drive.

In Google Sheets, a ‘place’ smart chip will let users insert the Google Maps data to select and preview the location.

Meanwhile, a ‘finance’ smart chip will let users insert stocks, mutual funds, and currencies.

On a separate note, Google Chrome expanded its zoom tool’s capacity, as users can increase the size of text, images, videos, and interactive controls on mobile web pages by up to 300% while preserving their original formatting.

The new feature is not available for all Chrome users, but you can access it now if you download the Chrome beta on your phone or tablet.

In order to activate the feature, tap the three dots icon in the top right corner of the browser, hit Settings > Accessibility, and then adjust the zoom level to your liking.
