We recently introduced a feature that allows users to copy charts from spreadsheets into documents and drawings.

We also introduced some new chart types to Google spreadsheets. We now support candlestick charts and combo charts (which allow you to show columns, lines, and area lines all on the same graph). You can also use the GeoMap chart to insert a data-driven map of the world, a continent, or a country into your spreadsheet. Our TreeMap chart is also useful for statistics.

How to access what's new:
- Create a chart in spreadsheets.
- Select the chart by clicking on it once, which will display the chart’s name. Click the chart name or the arrow next to it to open the dropdown menu of chart actions. From the menu, select ‘Copy chart’.
- Open the document or drawing where you’d like to insert the chart and position the cursor where you’d like the chart to go. Use the Web Clipboard dropdown menu and hover over the item.

The ‘Call phone’ feature in Gmail is now available in 38 languages. This was previously only available to users in the U.S.

You can now buy calling credit in your choice of four currencies (Euros, British pounds, Canadian dollars or U.S. dollars). To help reduce the cost of staying connected, we’re also lowering our calling rates to over 150 destinations around the world. For example, it’s now only $0.10 (or €0.08) per minute to call mobile phones in the U.K., France or Germany (landlines are $0.02/min), $0.15/minute to call mobile phones in Mexico and $0.02/min to call any phone number in China and India. The complete list is available on our rates page.

Release track:
Rapid*

Editions included:
Google Apps, Google Apps for Business, Government and Education

How to access what's new:
- Google Apps administrators must have the Google Voice and Google Checkout services enabled in the administrator control panel in order to be able to use this feature.
- Google Apps users need to have the voice and video plugin installed.
- Users will then see the ‘Call phone’ option in Gmail chat. This feature is rolling out gradually over the next few days.
