Where did Google Sets go? I can't find it.

Did it move to another Google app or within one of the options inside Google Docs?

Google Sets was shut down in September 2011.

You can closely recreate this feature using Google Docs Spreadsheets when you build a keyword list.

Follow these sets after opening up a fresh document in Google Spreadsheets:

  1. Enter values in a single column
  2. Select all values in this column

    spreadsheet with seed values

  3. Hold down Ctrl or Cmd

  4. Click and drag the blue dot that appears lower bottom right of this selection
  5. The rest of the list will now be filled in with extended guesses using the Google Sets Labs.

    populated guesses using google sets data

Pretty awesome. – Kzqai Nov 7 '11 at 15:49
It should be option key on Mac. Cmd repeats the selected items. – suzanshakya Apr 26 '13 at 13:23
Sadly, this feature is not available in newer Google Spreadsheets – mr.moses Jan 15 at 20:51
