Google has just announced add-ons for Android Docs and Sheets. The third-party add-ons can expand the capabilities of Docs and Sheets as well as integrate them with online services. These extensions were introduced two years ago. As of July 28, Android users can enjoy these new features too. Google announced the arrival of the third-party apps as a way for its users to increase their productivity.
“Whether it’s readying a contract you have for e-signature from your phone, or pulling in CRM data on your tablet for some quick analysis while waiting for your morning coffee, Android add-ons can help you accomplish more,” said Saurabh Gupta, Product Manager for Google Apps, in a recent blog post.
There is a significant number of new functionalities that you can now enjoy straight from your Android device. Here are some of the most important ones.
DocuSign is a tool that manages electronic signatures and digital transactions. Users can trigger or complete a signature from Docs and Sheets on Android and then save the file to Drive.
With the help of ProsperWorks, users can import their CRM data and create advanced dashboards, graphs, or reports, from their Android device.
Google has also rolled out AppSheet, designed to create mobile apps in Sheets without coding knowledge.
Ultimately, Scanbot scan documents, barcodes, and QR codes. Then, the app can insert them into Docs as editable text.
The new batch of add-ons for Android Docs and Sheets will also include ZohoCRM, EasyBib, PandaDoc, Teacher Aide, and Google Classroom. You can find them on Google Play or get them straight from the Docs and Sheets menus. More add-ons are on the way, and developers have a clear path to port more apps and services. As of now, there are only nine add-ons available for Android’s Docs and Sheets.
Google Docs and Sheets are productivity tools that allow users to create online documents and edit them in real time with other co-workers. Then, the files can be stored in an online Google Drive free of charge. The documents can be accessed from any device, anywhere in the world as long as there is an internet connection. Furthermore, some work can be done even offline.
