Google Rolls Out Updates to Docs Sites

Preview your docs in thumbnails, upload up to 1GB of files at a time, and other updates enhance your experience when using Docs and Sites.

On their blog earlier this week Google announced some exciting new features in Google Docs and Google Sites. New features released to both platforms are aimed at improving the overall user experience.

Updates to Docs:

  • Users may now choose to view their documents in the standard detail list, or in a thumbnail view that lets the user preview the document before opening it.
  • The document search function now includes spelling suggestions; this works just like the spelling corrections in Google Search. When you enter a misspelled word in the search box, Docs will prompt you with a different spelling.
  • Upload documents up to 1GB in size. This is an increase from the current 250MB limit.

These updates affect all editions of Google Docs, including Standard, Premier, Education, Team and Partner Editions.

To access the new features:

  • Thumbnail view can be opened by clicking the new thumbnail icon located in the view options at the top right of the documents list panel.
  • Google Docs search automatically offers a suggestion for the correct spelling of a word if you make a mistake entering it into the search field.
  • Any document that is not being converted to a Google Doc has a file size limit of 1GB.

Updates to the Sites API:

  • Copy sites and site templates using the site feed. It also now allows you to list, update, and create sites.
  • Permissions can now be managed through the Access Control List (ACL). This means that sharing settings can be configured through the API.


To take advantage of updates to the API update the code at https://developers.google.com/google-apps/sites/.
