The google_font() helper function can be used wherever a font name should be specified. There are two instances where this helper can be used: the name argument in opt_table_font() (for setting a table font) and in that of cell_text() (used with tab_style()). Because there is an overwhelming number of fonts available in the Google Fonts catalog, the info_google_fonts() provides a table with a set of helpful font recommendations. These fonts look great in the different parts of a gt table. Why? For the most part they are suitable for body text, having large counters, large x-height, reasonably low contrast, and open apertures. These font features all make for high legibility at smaller sizes.
