Google took to Twitter currently to deliver a tiny though useful underline that creates it easier than ever to create a Google Doc. By merely visiting a array of ‘.new’ URLs, such as ‘docs.new’ or ‘slide.new’, users will immediately be taken to a new vacant document.
The underline works opposite all request types, including Sheets, Docs, Slides, Sites, and Forms. Google is aiming to make this underline as foolproof as possible, so there are a crowd of options accessible to emanate a same form of document. You have 3 options only to emanate a spreadsheet, including ‘sheet.new’, ‘sheets.new’ or ‘spreadsheet.new’.
Introducing a .new time-saving pretence for users. Type any of these .new domains to now emanate Docs, Sheets, Slides, Sites or Forms
Whether this deems pardonable or useful is contingent on your Google Docs and by-pass use in general. If you’re consistently formulating new papers by Google Docs, you’ll wish to keep these new links in mind.
Here’s Google’s strange chatter from this morning:

This isn’t a initial time Google has updated Docs this year. In July, we saw a further of Smart Replies in Hangouts and Grammar suggestions.
Do we see any use out of a underline like this, or is it only a rubbish of time by Google? Let us know.
Update 1/3: The latest Drive app to supplement a .new by-pass is Google Forms. Users can possibly form form.new or forms.new in a residence bar to fast open a new document.
