Google Fonts (previously called Google Web Fonts) is an interactive directory of free hosted application programming interfaces for web fonts. It was launched in 2010, and revamped in 2011. Many of the fonts are released under the SIL Open Font License 1.1, while some are released under the Apache License; both are free software licenses. The fonts are also served by Monotype’s SkyFonts, and Adobe’s Edge Web Fonts and Typekit services.
Google Fonts is designed to provide a platform for users to discover fonts and is used extensively, and example font faces include Lato, Raleway, and Lobster.
