Google today announced it has started rolling out its faster, more powerful version of Google Sheets: users will be automatically upgraded “over the next few weeks.” When you get the upgrade, all your new spreadsheets will use the new Sheets format. Google wouldn’t say when existing spreadsheets will be upgraded to the new Sheets, though the company did say it will share details on that process “in the coming months.”
When Google revealed the new version in December, it showed offline editing (syncing to Google Drive occurs as soon as you’re online), speed improvements (faster scrolling, load times, and in-app calculations), as well as the addition of filter views, which lets you share different versions of your spreadsheet with other people. Other new features include multiple cell selection, easier hyperlinking, and add-ons.
