February 5 Release: Edit Google Slides Offline

Users now have the ability to create, view and edit presentations without an internet connection with Google Slides offline. This is automatically enabled for users who have already enabled offline editing of Docs and Sheets. Offline access to presentations is only available in Chrome and on Chrome OS devices. Read more about Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides offline.

Mid-February Release: Google Forms Refresh

Just as you can in Docs, Sheets, and Slides, now you can invite others to work simultaneously with you as you create and edit a form—or chat with the group about your ideas without ever leaving the app. With new features like auto-save, undo/redo, and keyboard shortcuts, it’s easier to get stuff done quickly in Forms. NOTE: Unlike the previous version, forms are no longer tied to a specific spreadsheet. Responses are collected and stored only in the form. If owners prefer to see the data in a spreadsheet, they can specify a destination spreadsheet for the data at any time. For more info see Google's official announcement,
