We've added the ability to rotate full-screen dashboards. This allows you to show your dashboard on a vertical external display using a Chromecast or Apple TV. For example, here's a full-screen dashboard with the following URL:
When you click the "90°" button, the URL changes to
If you chose a category like Text and Images, it would slide over to show you all of the widgets in that category. This worked fine, but it wasn't very easy to see all of the different types of widgets that are available.
Now, when you click the "add widget" plus button it shows an entire "add widget" layer. This give us a lot more space, and we're able to show you all of the things you can add to your dashboard on one screen.
We're pretty excited about this new add widget menu. Not only is it easier to use, but it also gives us room to add more widgets in the future.
You can now show custom data on your dashboards from Google Drive spreadsheets! These new Google Drive widgets can be used by anyone, including people with free accounts.
Google Drive widgets were a very popular development request, and we have even more exciting stuff coming soon.
