Google Tables is a product that originated in Area 120. No, Area 120 is not a place in the Nevada desert where aliens are studied. It’s the name for Google’s in-house incubator.
Tables was launched in September 2020. It can be viewed as a middle ground between spreadsheet software and database software.
Visually, Tables has rows of data, just like a spreadsheet. Functionally, it acts a lot more like a database than a spreadsheet app such as Google Sheets.
