First, electronic devices on planes! Love to hear that Delta is the first to apply and that I can hopefully use devices on my flight coming up in 2 days. Woohoo! http://news.delta.com/index.php?s=43&item=2152
Second, transcon economy comfort is awesome and has changed in the last 6-8 months. Highly recommended. I always upgrade to economy comfort for the extra leg room and priority boarding. On transcon flights (JFK-SFO/LAX/SEA) they also give you free movies, a snack pack (better than just cookies/peanuts), and free booze. Now I just want the same for non-transcon flights. Delta Connection flights, which I often take, need some of these things as well.
Third, one of my flights recently got overbooked for the holidays due to a plane change. I got a personal phone call (not an automated message or email) from Delta asking if I wanted to stay on the flight or rebook with compensation (not just... oh, we rebooked you). Awesome to get this choice and not find out last minute at the gate like other airlines. Quite impressive.
I'd probably think this was standard if I was super-elite with them, and to be fair, I have status, but currently only the lowest level, Silver (will make Gold this year though). It's also pretty awesome that I get upgraded to First on nearly all short-haul flights with Silver status. Loving it.
Stay tuned for the full version of the talk at I/O in SF later today at 4:55pm ET / 1:55pm PT. Videos will hopefully be posted afterwards. Good luck !
I'm really excited by all the new changes. The team did a great job. Copy and pasting a long list of items is slick -- asking someone which state or country they're from in a dropdown is super easy now.
Today we’re launching a more robust, powerful version of Google Forms. 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.
The new update will be rolling out over the next few days. Read the full blog post for more details at http://goo.gl/Wa2lv, or watch the video below for a tour of the new Forms.
Keep an eye on our page this week as we highlight some of our favorite Forms productivity tips—plus share details about an opportunity to Hangout with the engineers behind Forms!
Specifically for Google Sheets, we announced the ability to edit XLSX files directly in Sheets -- no need for Office!
Sheets on Android also got a refreshed UI along with several new features: find/replace, formula editing, and charts. iOS updates coming soon.
The team did an awesome job with this. Just in time for holiday traveling! Forget purchasing wifi on the plane, spreadsheets will continue to work offline. The speed improvements are so great, and I'm really loving so many of the new features.
Thanks to for building this feature back in 2007!
