Google Fonts (formerly known as Google Web Fonts) is a font embedding service library. This includes free and open source font families, an interactive web directory for browsing the library, and APIs for using the fonts via CSS and Android. Popular fonts in the Google Fonts library include Roboto, Open Sans, Lato, Oswald, Montserrat, Source Sans Pro, and Raleway.
On March 3, 2020, Google updated the catalog website with support for variable fonts. On 2 March 2021, the Google Fonts team announced they were adding support for open source icons.
As of October 2021[update], Google Fonts had 1284 font families, including 182 variable font families.
The library is maintained through Google Fonts' GitHub repository, where all font files can be obtained directly. Source files for many of the fonts are available from git repositories within the Google Fonts' GitHub organization, along with libre software tools used by the Google Fonts community.
