Google Fonts 2016 Glyph Sets
Three levels of glyph sets were developed in June 2016 as a new baseline standard for fonts in the Google Fonts library. Exising fonts in the library can be upgraded to these as part of a drive towards new quality standards. All new fonts submitted to the library must now support the Plus level as a minumum requirement.
Three sets are available in this directory: Plus, Pro and Expert.
Glyphs App Tip
Inside FilterLists are text files with a list of glyphs for each set. Open Glyphs and in the left bottom sidebar, create a new list filter, and paste the contents of these files to check if your fonts supports these characters. A ✓ will indicate you are all set. Otherwise ctrl + click on the numbers to generate missing glyphs.
