Back in September, Google announced templates for Docs, Sheets, and Slides. It was only available on desktop, however, until now.

The company announced that it has expanded the functionality to Android and iOS.

"Focus on your content, not your formatting, with the new templates in Docs, Sheets, and Slides on the web," Google said with the initial launch. "Choose from a wide variety of documents, spreadsheets, and presentations pre-designed for a multitude of use cases, including newsletters, invoices, pitch decks, case studies, and more. Simply visit the Docs, Sheets, and Slides home screens to access these new templates and get started."

"If you and/or your employees previously created your own templates, you can still access them (and create new custom templates) at," it said. "We understand that some businesses and brands have additional needs when working with templates, and we’re looking to address these in future updates."

And that's probably where the mobile functionality comes in. You might say this is even more helpful on mobile than on desktop as it potentially reduces the amount of work you have to do on a doc (or sheet or slideshow) from your mobile device, which can be more of a pain to work with on your phone.
