In September, Google announced a bunch of new templates for Docs, Slides, and Sheets. In December, these became available on Android and iOS.

Building on these offerings, the company just announced even more templates, and some of them are specifically geared toward businesses. The new templates are designed by experts in their fields. This includes Intuit, GV, and Made to Stick authors Chip and Dan Heath.

Intuit's QuickBooks contributed a new annual business budget template in Sheets to make it easier to manage budgets.

"GV provides venture capital funding to bold new companies," says product manager Brian LeVee. "In the fields of life science, healthcare, artificial intelligence, robotics, transportation, cyber security and agriculture, GV’s companies aim to improve lives and change industries.The new GV pitch template in Slides helps entrepreneurs share their vision, based on proven presentation tactics."

"And, in the bestselling book, Made to Stick, brothers Chip and Dan Heath revealed that 'sticky' messages of all kinds draw their power from the same main traits," LeVee adds. "In their big idea template in Slides, they use these principles to help you build and deliver your most memorable presentation yet."

On the educational side of things, there's a new Reading Rainbow-designed lesson plan and book report template in Docs and a Google Science Fair-designed Slides template for science projects.

Google discusses each of the new templates in a blog post here.
