Docs, Sheets & Slides Get Six Pro-Designed Templates

March 2, 2016 - Written By Justin Diaz

Google Docs does many great things for its users, including allowing them to create new documents for any need based off of a number of included templates, and as of today, Google is enhancing this capability by introducing six new templates to their services like Docs which are designed by professionals like Reading Rainbow and Quickbooks by Intuit. While there were already a number of different available templates to choose from before, having a handful of professionally designed templates at your disposal can make all the difference when it comes time to put something together that you’re looking to impress with.

Templates in Google Docs were launched towards the end of last year and were spread across Google’s other office services as well which include Sheets and Slides in addition to Docs. Today’s launch of the professional templates will be added into the mix for all three apps, and what’s more, is that Google is making them available across all platforms where Docs, Sheets, and Slides can be accessed which includes the Web as well as Android, and of course, iOS too. It’s worth noting that not all the new templates will be geared towards all three services, as they are specifically laid out to be an enhancement tool for certain ones.

For example, users can access the newly added lesson plan and book report templates from within Docs that were designed by Reading Rainbow which has been inspiring and teaching children through a television program for decades. Alternatively, the Quickbooks designed annual business budget template can be accessed within Google Slides, naturally. While the templates designed by Reading Rainbow are aimed at students and education, so is the template for Slides that was designed by the Google Science Fair, a competition open to teens around the world that Google holds online every single year. There are also two more templates included as part of the six, both of which are meant for Slides as well, with one having been designed by GV (formerly Google Ventures) called GV Pitch which aims to assist entrepreneurs, and another one that was designed by authors of the best-selling novel called “Made To Stick” called Big Idea. If you use any of these three services frequently regardless of platform, these new templates are already live across all three platform mentioned above.
