Google recently revealed its plan to deep-six Quickoffice, so updates for apps like Docs are pretty much a given. The latest version of Mountain View’s word processing application introduces a cluster of new features, including support for Android L, which should make early, early adopters smile. Other noticeable changes in software version 1.3.251.9 include a redesigned  interface more in line with Google’s Material Design language, along with the ability to create and edit Microsoft.docx files.

Obtained early by Android Police, the refreshed app doesn’t appear to be available in Google Play just yet, so you’ll want to keep an eye out for an update notification. Until then, here’s a glimpse of what you can expect to see in the not so distant future.
