When it comes to creating charts and in depth analysis of your data in a Google Sheet, speed was never the first word that came to mind. I would often find myself setting aside a chunk of time in my day to build all the charts I needed to properly draw conclusions from my data sets.

The recent addition of the Explore feature has changed all of that.

Just highlight the data set and the and click the Explore tab in the bottom right corner of Google Sheets to instantly create charts and perform the analysis that you used to do manually. Not only can it recognize trends in the numbers but Sheets can now even decipher the textual cells and incorporate that into the analysis. Make changes to the data and the Explore view will update and adjust in real time to show the impact. Try it for yourself and dig deeper into your data faster than you ever could before.
