Google announced new and improved templates to its online suite of applications. You can now launch Google Docs, Sheets, or Slides and you will see their templates listed. You can click on the "More" button in the upper-right hand corner and you will see all the templates offered. If you like to use templates and you like to use Google Apps, you might give these a try.
Here is the Google Blog article on this release:
Please note: You have to navigate to each google app separately. You cannot access the templates right now through google drive (as far as I know.) If you do, you can select "New", then "Document." From there, you can select "File" - "New" - "From template"
