Google launched a new “Go Google” campaign today to flaunt its array of cloud-based services, and now the Google Docs team is doing the same by rounding up a host of improvements it made to Google Docs in April with the announcement of 450 new fonts and 60 new templates.

“Today, we added over 450 new fonts to Google documents to make it easier for you to add a little something extra to whatever you create,” explained Software Engineer Isabella Ip on the Official Google Docs Blog.

To select the new fonts, click on the font menu, and then select “Add fonts” at the bottom. This will open a menu to all the Google Web Fonts available. Users can narrow their search for the perfect font by alphabetical order, date added, and “trending.” Once a font is selected, users are free to implement them in Google Docs, especially in one of the service’s 60 new templates that were unveiled today.

Other Google Docs improvements include expanded image support with Google Drive, search capability in Life magazine’s photo archive, and the ability to capture and add images directly with a webcam.

For those unaware: Google Docs is a word-processing Web application in Google Apps, which is Google service that features several cloud-based applications like traditional office suites. Its popularity among businesses and educational institutions is rapidly increasing due to enhanced sharing features, accessibility, and cost.
