Google has introduced some really interesting Android add-ons for Docs and Sheets apps.
Web versions of Google Docs and Sheets already have too many apps to help you ease the work. Now those using Google Docs and/or Sheets on their Android devices can use some popular apps directly from there. You can read the full announcement here.
Currently there are 9 standalone Android apps which have been integrated and can be used as add-ons on Google Docs and Sheets apps. The integrated add-ons are:
- Google Classroom.
- Zoho CRM.
- ProsperWorks CRM.
- Teacher Aid.
To use any of these apps, make sure you have already installed these add-ons on your Android devices separately. After that, you can
open Google Docs or Sheets → Open a document for editing → click the three vertical dots icon → access Add-ons menu → and then you can install the add-on that you want to integrate with Google Docs or Sheets. Or else, you can access Google Play Collection to find all the apps that have been integrated.
Note: Don’t worry if you don’t find any Add-ons option or menu. It is possible that the next update of Google Sheets or Docs in your country can solve this issue.
After the integration, you can make use of that particular Android app as an add-on in Google Docs/Sheets.
These 9 apps are really good and helpful to improve the productivity. For example, when you have to add electronic or digital signatures in your Google Docs document, you can take the help of DocuSign add-on (also available as Chrome extension).
And when your need to is to manage your sales sheets, schedule, and tracks events, use voice notes in the document and do other things, then simply add Zoho CRM add-on and use it.
