Update brings new fonts, creative templates

In an update on the Google Docs Blog, the Google Docs Team announced the availability of 450 new fonts and 60 creative templates. The new fonts and templates, part of an array of new features and updates announced today, expand the range of documents users can create, bringing Google's offering more in line with the capabilities of its main productivity suite competitor, Microsoft Office.

In addition to a range of template options - divided into Work, School, Home, and Fun sections - and fonts, today's update brings the ability to import images from Google Drive and increased support for screenreaders. Google Docs also supports importing images from webcams and the LIFE Photo archive. The update also increases the size limit for files from 2MB to 50MB. Users are also now able to specify default page sizes for new documents.

The update comes as Google continues to push for greater market share for its free productivity suite. Google's recent update to its Android Docs app brought a new user interface, as well as real-time collaboration capabilities matching those of the browser-based app.
