Some time ago I posted about templates, and how to use them in Google Drive. Google has now introduced a new template gallery for the desktop versions of Docs, Sheets and Slides, offering a new interface design and lots of new template designs.
In Docs (for example), simply choose File from the menu, then New and From template…
This will open the new template interface, where the designs are helpfully grouped into types:
In many cases the new layouts are responsive, so they present well on mobile devices with different screen sizes, formats and resolutions.
You can still find the old templates, including any that you created and saved, by navigating to
and using the old template interface as described in the prior post.
