Rotating text in Google Sheets is really useful when you want to quickly fit the text in a cell or to represent it a way that is different from others. There are two ways to rotate text in Google Sheets.

The first way is to use the options from the navigation menu. To do that, select the cell you want to rotate the text and select one of the options from "Format > Text Rotation" menu. As you can see, there are a bunch of options to rotate text up, down, stack vertically, etc.

For finer control, you can even select a specific angle of rotation from the "0° Angle" menu.

Alternatively, you can also rotate text in Google Sheets using the Menu bar icons. Just select the cell, and then select on of the rotation options by clicking on the "Text Rotation icon."

Again, for finer control, you can control the text rotation by selecting specific angle from the drop-down menu next to general rotation icons.
