A few things to look forward to on Google. Your files on Google Drive will get a more colorful and cleaner look thanks to a little update. The more interesting announcement is reserved for the public beta launch of a new Google tool – the Google Web Designer.
First things first: launch into Google Drive and you should see a band of color with the product icon on the top-left of your Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drawings, Forms and Apps Script windows. Each product has a different color. Clicking on the product icon takes you back to the Google Drive files and folders. Google Drive has also been updated with a new compact header designed for quick access as you can see in the screenshot below.
The Google Web Designer Editor
Google Web Designer is a visual tool for easily designing interactive HTML5 sites and ads. The tool has been launched in public beta and is available for free download on Windows and Mac. The designing software is meant for advertisers primarily who want to easily create animated ads for mobiles and desktops. Though most of the features are custom-made for ads, it can also be easily used for making full scale HTML5 webpages. Google Web Designer is an attempt to simplify the design process for cross-platforms and multiple screens.
