Gmail Gains Third-Party Add-Ons
Google today added support for add-ons to Gmail on the web and Android devices. Add-ons allows power users to bridge Gmail with other business apps for smoother productivity and workflows. Moving forward, Gmail will be able to "contextually surface your go-to app" based on the email at hand to get things done faster. Google says add-ons function the same across the web and Android, so they will only need to be installed and activated once. Google has been testing add-ons with developers since earlier this year. Some of the first to support add-ons include Asana, Dialpad, DocuSign, Hire, Intuit QuickBooks, RingCentral, Smartsheet, Streak, and Trello. The Trello add-on, for example, lets people turn emails into actionable tasks within Trello than can be shared with colleagues. Google says add-ons for Gmail will first be available to its G Suite business customers.
