After officially showcasing its 'Project Athena' that promises to bring the Material Design like look and feel to its Chrome OS, online giant Google has now released a new look for its specific application suites such as Docs, Sheets and Slides.

The new look seemingly throws cues at users that hint at the Material Design look and feel that the company aims to bring out with its Android L operating system.

An important enhancement that the Material Design inspired new look brings along is the new "+" button (located on the lower right-hand corner), which allows users to create new content with just a single-click. New content can include new slides, spreadsheets and documents.

Also, the new look and feel brings with it, a new Chrome extension installing, which makes it easy to edit Office files. Users also get to edit documents offline.

"You can quickly create something new with a click on the + button, edit Office files by installing the new Chrome extension (, and once you enable offline editing, everything on your home screen is editable even when you're not connected to the Internet," states Google, in an official Google+ post.

Finally, Google has incorporated a new Start page for its Sheets, Docs and Slides app suite, with which the company claims that users can get back to their favourite content easily.

"Now when you visit,,, you'll find an easy way to get back (access) to your most relevant and recently edited documents, spreadsheets, and presentations," adds Google.

Along with the above enhancements, users should also find new organisation menus on the top right-hand corner.

Last month, Google introduced the Material Design, which promises a refreshed look and design for Android L.
