Google's suite of office products are already pretty handy on their own, but with add-ons in the mix, things can get even better. Introduced for Gmail back in 2017, add-ons allow for integrations between popular third-party services and Google's own apps. Now these types of add-ons should be available on Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides, too.
Two years ago Google introduced extensions for Google Docs and Sheets. These third-party add-ons expanded on what the browser-based word processor and spreadsheet could do, often integrating them with online services. Now that functionality has made its way to Android.
With people relying on Google's office suite more extensively as a result of its Android integration or the inability to use much of anything else on a Chromebook, the company needs to do more to fill in the gaps in the software's functionality. So now the company has rolled out add-ons support for Google Docs and Sheets (the new version). Similar to browser extensions, these tools provide additional features and third-party integration that enhance what the two programs are capable of.
The new "Add-ons" option is tucked away in the menu bar, and in it you can easily search for and install new extensions.
