Google renames Google Drive apps, releases them to Chrome Web Store

Google Drive users will find new standalone Web apps in Chrome for the popular software suite.

Meet Google's renamed Drive apps.

Say goodbye to Documents, Spreadsheets, and Presentations. Say hello to Docs, Sheets, and Slides.

Google quietly renamed its Google Drive applications today while releasing them as standalone apps inside the Chrome Web Store.

Once users install them, they will be available as shortcuts every time they open a new tab in Chrome.

They're also coming to Chromebooks. In a few weeks, Google says, Docs, Sheets, and Slides will appear in Chromebook users' app list by default.

They aren't the only new Web apps available in the Chrome Web Store. Google also has released apps for Drawings, Forms, Google Apps Script, and Fusion Tables.
