Google is providing more functionality for users making spreadsheets available to large audiences. Users can publish a file as a web page and embed or share that URL. With the latest Google launch, users now have the ability to publish spreadsheets in five additional formats. 

New Formats include:
  • Comma-separated values (.csv)
  • Tab-separated values (.tsv)
  • PDF document (.pdf)
  • Microsoft Excel spreadsheet (.xlsx)
  • OpenDocument spreadsheet (.ods)
When opened in a browser, the URL will automatically download the spreadsheet in the chosen format. Keep in mind that spreadsheets in these additional formats cannot be embedded. For more information, see Publish Google Sheets spreadsheets in five additional formats

Users who are working in Chrome, and have turned on offline access, can now insert images into Sheets even when working offline. The images added to Sheets will sync once the users is back online. For more information, see Insert images into Google Sheets when offline
