Google announced today that Google Docs now supports web fonts using the Google Font API. To start off, there are six new fonts available.
"This is just the beginning of fonts in Google Docs," says software engineer Jeremie Lenfant-Engelmann. "We added six new fonts today and we’re already testing our next batch. You’ll see many more new fonts over the next few months. And because Google Docs uses web fonts, you’ll never need to install a new font: when you load your document, the latest set of fonts will always be there, ready to use."
The six new fonts include: Droid Serif, Droid Sans, Calibri, Cambria, Consolas and Corsiva. "Right now our font support covers most Latin and Western European character sets. However, we’ll be adding web fonts for other languages (like Hebrew and Greek) soon.," says Lenfant-Engelmann.
