And with offline access, you can create, view, and edit files wherever and whenever. All changes are automatically saved as you make them.

Or simply type a question into Explore and have Google AI retrieve the answers you need.
Work seamlessly across Sheets and Excel
Seamless compatibility with Microsoft files, including many of the keyboard shortcuts you rely on, reduces the friction of working across multiple platforms. Sheets opens up whole new ways of collaborating so that you can worry less about having the right version on file and focus on bringing your best ideas to life.
Maintain control with enterprise-grade security

Use Data Loss Prevention controls to keep sensitive data safe. Set expiration dates on your content. With Sheets, your content is continuously protected by one of the world’s most advanced security infrastructures.
Analyze data from multiple sources, including BigQuery
Additional APIs and connector tools help you process data from multiple sources — in CSV, Excel, or any other file format. Sheets provides all the tools you need to analyze, visualize, and get insights from your data. And with Connected Sheets, you can analyze billions of rows of BigQuery data in Sheets, without requiring SQL knowledge.
