Google is always thinking of new ways it can improve its apps and services, and this week, a major update rolled out to Gmail for Android and web customers.
Gmail for Android and Gmail for web received an update this week bringing support for add-ons. The purpose of add-ons is to get business customers using business-like apps within Gmail itself. Here’s how they work.
The Gmail team is trying to attract more business customers to its email service. Rather than users having to install separate applications, many can be loaded right in Gmail for easy access, these will be known as add-ons. There are already quite a few that are available, which can be browsed from a new ‘Get add-ons’ option located in settings. Once an add-on is installed on one platform, it will automatically be there on the other. This works interchangeably between Android and web. iOS users will have to wait.
Some popular add-on company’s include: Asana, Dialpad, Hire, and Trello. More are “coming soon” such as DocuSign, which will allow you to sign agreements and other documents directly in Gmail. You can check out the full listing of add-ons here.
