What's new in Google Apps:
Instead of needing to navigate to an event’s details in order see the event location, the event location will now appear on your calendar, when there is enough space available.
You can now continue working in other tabs uninterrupted without losing track of your next meeting. Event notifications in browsers which support Web Notifications (like Google Chrome) will allow you to use native browser notifications instead of interruptive alerts
Working with long and complicated formulas is tough enough as is; you shouldn’t have to struggle to simply read them. Fortunately, this launch makes it easier to view and type those lengthy equations in Google Sheets on the web, by allowing you to drag and expand the formula bar.
Google has added the ability to set an expiration date when sharing Google Drive Documents, Sheets, and Slides files. For instance, imagine you are working in a team for three months and need to share data with them. You can now share that data, but also put an expiration date on the sharing permissions, so when the three month project is over, you don't need to remember to go back and remove the team's permissions from those files.

When looking at Search results or items in the Shared with me, Recent, or Starred views in Drive, you’ll now see one of two options in the toolbar at the top of the screen. If the item you’ve selected is not already located in My Drive, you’ll continue to see the option to Add to My Drive.
