Apple today updated its suite of iWork apps, including Pages, Numbers, and Keynote for macOS, iOS, and iPadOS, with support for new features.

In the latest version of Pages, Keynotes, and Numbers Apple has added support for easily sharing documents with co-workers through Messages and support for new collaboration features in iOS 16, iPadOS 16, and macOS Ventura, including integration with FaceTime.

The latest updates also add support for getting notified when changes are made in a shared document and improved support for Stage Manager on iPadOS 16. All of the new versions are available for customers on the App Store.

Restoring the ability to include builds on master slides in Keynote, which was removed years ago, would be better than some of the new features Apple has been adding. I haven't tested this latest update, but I'd be pleasantly surprised if it were there.

Only for Ventura?

Update: no, on my Monterey Mac they also update (go to the apps in the app store).

Formatting options like alternating rows colour in Numbers is still limited to the macOS version.

They need to combine these into one app. That would make a nice workspace, keeping recent documents in one area as well as any sharing activity. Would also make it easier to share document elements across tabs.
Combining three ~500MB apps into one probably won’t make 32GB device owners too happy when OS+System Data can easily take up 20GB. It’s a significant chunk of even a 64GB device.

The apps themselves share a lot of code; you'd be surprised.

This missing feature! I have a 10+ year radar (now feedback) that I keep just adding, "yup — not fixed".

12.2 is no different...

I wish Apple showed the same care for their calendar app. I couldn't take its longstanding bugs anymore and I switched to another calendar application.

iWork has been maturing into a really decent office suite that integrates well with the Apple ecosystem. I actually prefer Pages to Word and Numbers has pivot tables and a growing library of functions that makes it quite usable.
