Google Docs Launches Snazzy New Chart Maker

The Google Docs team unveiled an attractive new chart creation tool today for Google’s spreadsheet tool. New features include automatically recommended chart types based on the data you’ve input, more control over colors and imagery, advanced visualizations and the ability to embed dynamically updated charts around the web.

ReadWriteWeb’s COO and spreadsheet man Sean Ammirati said the service still doesn’t look as powerful as Excel, of course. “Honestly, though, it’s getting closer and those visualizations are cool,” he says. “I could also see bringing Excel sheets over for some of them.” Check out the demonstration video below.

You can try out the new charts editor via this link: goo.gl/newcharts. Imagine being able to play with these tools on an iPad.
