Google is always working to improve and add new functions and features to all their products. We will post here any new updates on the products we use.

- Check out a refreshed UI for pivot tables in Sheets, and new, customizable headings for rows and columns.
- View your data differently with new pivot table features. When you create a pivot table, you can “show values as a % of totals” to see summarized values as a fraction of grand totals. Once you have a table, you can right-click on a cell to “view details” or even combine pivot table groups to aggregate data the way you need it. We’re also adding new format options, like repeated row labels, to give you more fine-tuned control of how to present your summarized data.
- Create and edit waterfall charts. Waterfall charts are good for visualizing sequential changes in data, like if you want to see the incremental breakdown of last year’s revenue month-by-month. Select Insert > Chart > Chart type picker and then choose “waterfall.”
- Quickly import or paste fixed-width formatted data files. Sheets will automatically split up the data into columns for you without needing a delimiter such as commas between data.
These new Sheets features will roll out in the coming weeks—see specific rollout details below. To learn more about how G Suite can help your business uncover valuable insights and speed up efficiencies, visit the G Suite website. Or check out these tips to help get started with Sheets.

In early January 2018, we will simplify Drive navigation by removing the Google Photos tab. You can continue to access your photos and videos in Drive by creating a Google Photos folder in My Drive. Learn more in the Help Center.
You can still access your photos and videos in Google Photos on the web, Android, and iOS.
