Here is a free Slack app to connect Google Sheets with Slack. This app is named “Sheet.chat“. You can connect multiple Google Sheets and then it lets you preview any of those sheets within the Slack channel with which you have connected this app. You can also view the list of all sheets. Another good feature of this app is it lets you search in a particular sheet and shows the result in Slack channel.
Some other useful features are also provided by this app. You can preview the first N rows of a Google Sheets or last N rows of Google Sheets. So, pretty good options are there to use. Just connect this app, add a Google account of your choice to add Google Sheets, connect your Slack channel, and use all such options within your Slack account.
In the screenshot above, you can see that I performed preview and search commands of this app in my Slack channel and it provided results from my Google Sheets document.

Step 1: Open homepage of this app and sign up to this app with your Slack account. Also, authorize it to access your account.

A command /sheet sheetname add is also there to add a new Google Sheets document, but it is not working for now. It will be added later.
