Using Docs, Slides, Sheets, and Forms in Google’s ‘.new’ links are now easier.
Google Docs has found out a new time-saving way to instantly create new Docs, Slides, Sheets and Forms document with its new domain .new. The company this week introduced its “.new” domain, which can be used to instantly create a new file across any of these services, it says.
Now, instead of going to Google Drive, and then clicking on “New” and then choosing the service you want to use and create a document of your need, you can now just type “doc.new” in your address bar of the browser to open a Google Doc online and use it as usual.
Not only “doc.new”, but you can also type “document.new” and “docs.new” to open Google Doc. Similarly, if you want to use other services like Slides, Sheets, and Forms, you can type “slides.new”, “slides.new”, “presentation.new”, “sheet.new”, “sheets.new”, “spreadsheet.new”, “site.new”, “sites.new”, “website.new”, “deck.new”, “form.new” and “forms.new” to open Google’s services accordingly.
(Don’t type in the “www” — just the domain.)

If you are working with Google Docs on a regular basis, this .new domain name can help you a lot and save your time throughout the day. You can also bookmark it to open your desired document in just a click and save time a little more.
This is all possible because Google owns the .new domain, which allows it to create whatever subdomains it wants on the site.
After Google twitted the news on Thursday, users were so excited about the new trick that they started requesting on twitter for other domains, too. Some of them asked for an email.new.
Although Google didn’t respond to those requests, it wouldn’t be surprising if the domain was used in other ways across its apps in the future.
