So what’s new?

  • Simplified design meant to be viewed and responded to on all device types
  • Brand new colors and themes
  • A quicker way to view the summary of responses
  • Better mobile editing and viewing

What features aren’t available in the new Forms just yet?

  • Data validation
  • Add-ons
  • Date or time questions

When these become available is up to Google. You may see them greyed out for now.

Opt in

If you want to create a form using the new Google Forms, opt in to the new version. When editing a form created using the old Forms, you may also see a link at the top to try out the new version. If you don’t see a link at the top of your form to try the new version, you may be using a feature not yet available in the new Forms (see above for list).

Opt out of the new Forms

If you’re editing a form and want to go back to the old version of Forms, click the Exit icon in the bottom left corner of the form. At the moment, you can only opt out of the new Forms on a computer.
