Google’s giving users even more flexibility over how their apps look. Neat, right? Last week, we got the ability to resize the Chat and Room Sections features in Gmail. Plus, offline support for Google Calendar (finally!). Read about these updates and more in the links.

Enable Offline Support for Google Calendar on Web From Your Computer
Google Workspace Updates | You can now enable offline support for Google Calendar on Google Chrome from your computer. When enabled, you can view your calendar and events from four weeks prior or any time in the future by week, day, or month. This is particularly useful when you’re offline or have unreliable internet access.

Quickly Navigate to Active Cells and Ranges With the New Range Name Box in Google Sheets
Google Workspace Updates | Google is adding a range name box, located to the left of the formula bar, to improve navigation in Google Sheets. Previously, active cells were only indicated by a blue outline and could be located by scrolling or using the arrow keys. Now, you can use the range name box to jump directly to coordinates and named ranges in a sheet.

Resize the Chat and Rooms Sections in Gmail on the Web
Google Workspace Updates | You can now resize the Chat and Rooms sections in the left-side navigation of Gmail on the web. This makes it easier to stay on top of your most important conversations and navigate to relevant chats faster.
