Google is adding new features to help you customize chart text and numbers in Google Sheets. Specifically, you can now:
- Directly click on almost any chart text element and update both its content and style, most notably individual data labels and legend items.
- Set advanced number formatting options on both your data labels and axis labels, including the option to conditionally format by color.
- Use a contextual sidebar editing experience, making it easier to format individual data labels, legend items, and single data points.
See images below for demonstrations:

- Admins: There is no admin control for this feature.
- End users: This feature will be ON by default. Visit the Help Center to learn more about adding charts or graphs in Sheets, or adding data labels, notes, or error bars to a chart.
- Available to all G Suite customers and users with personal accounts
