It’s been more than two years since Google added support for add-ons to its web-based Docs and Sheets office suite, allowing you to integrate third-party tools to sort sheets, add fonts to documents, create forms, merge labels, use additional types of charts, and more.
Now Google Docs and Sheets for Android also supports add-ons.
There are 9 available at launch, including add-ons from DocuSign (for digitally “signing” documents,” Scanbot (for scanning documents using optical character recognition), and AppSheet (for turning a spreadsheet into a mobile app).
Each add-on needs to be installed as a standalone app in order to work with Google Docs and Sheets for Android. You can find available add-ons in the Play Store, or open a document or spreadsheet on your Android phone or tablet, tap the 3-dot menu icon, and choose “add-ons” to get a link to the Play Store that shows just the apps that can be integrated with the app you’re currently using (Docs or Sheets).
