Behind the scenes with Google Web Fonts

In the past few months, we added over 450 new fonts to Google documents and presentations, making it even easier for you to create beautiful work. 

The 450+ fonts available to you in Drive are made possible by Google Web Fonts, a directory of open source web fonts for the world to use. Many of Google's own web pages are already using Google Web Fonts, such as Google's About page and Google's World Wonders Project which use Open Sans. And the use of web fonts is surging: Over the last year, Google Web Fonts has seen a 10x increase in the amount of requests, recently crossing 1B font views per day across 100M+ web pages.

Watch the video below with Googlers Ilya Grigorik and David Kuettel as they take an in-depth look at the technology behind Google Web Fonts.
