- The changes will go live for all eligible customers over the next four weeks.
Google’s handy tool for doing online surveys and quizzes will finally get a makeover. This has been announced by the search giant (opens in new tab) a few highly sought-after features for Google Forms, including additional font style and size options.
From this week you will be able to change the look and feel of your forms using different fonts and sizes. The new fonts can be used on different parts of your form. This was not possible in the previous version of Forms.
This means you can now customize the header, subhead, and body text of your form separately. Prior to this update, the customization options in Forms were limited. For example, your chosen theme will be applied to the entire form. Also, you could only choose from four fonts: Basic, Decorative, Formal, and Playful.
Now you have more detailed control over the appearance of your form. In the screen provided by Google, there are additional font options, including Lobster, Handlee, Barlow and more.
Next to the font settings are the font size setting buttons on your headers and text boxes. As usual, you can customize the font color and change the background.
Google Forms is used primarily for educational purposes and polls, so its latest makeover should appeal to PC owners and users of the best student Chromebooks.
The update is available to all Google Workspace customers, older G Suite Basic and Business users, and personal Google account owners. It will take up to four weeks before the latest change goes live for everyone.
