Have you ever been working on Google Doc, only to find you couldn’t do something you needed to? Google recently launched add-on stores for Google Docs and Sheets, which bring new capabilities to your documents and spreadsheets. To see what’s available, click “Get add-ons” in the Add-ons menu of any document or spreadsheet. Every add-on was created by Google’s developer partners. If you find one you want to use, clicking on it will make it available to use right away across all your documents and spreadsheets. Some of the more popular add-ons include Avery’s LabelMerge, which makes setting up and printing address labels a breeze, and the EasyBib add-on, which simplifies the process of citing sources in school essays or professional reports. Google wanted make the add-on process as easy as possible, so they’ll update automatically and look and feel like they’re native features of Google Docs and Sheets. There are about 25 add-ons currently available, with many more on the way in the coming months.
