Announced today, Google is introducing a new layer of features to its Google Docs and Google Sheets productivity web apps. The word processor and spreadsheet editor will now support additional features through user-installed add-ons developed by select partners.


The add-ons are accessible through a menu in the tool bar when editing a document or spreadsheet and include a number of partners like Mail Chimp and Avery. Once prompted from the tool bar, Docs and Sheets will present a store-like interface laying out the various supported add-ons allowing you to install them to your apps.

While Google has partnered with a number of developers to launch its add-on feature, the company says to expect support for more add-ons to continue to roll out soon.

Add-ons should be available starting today in Google Docs and Google Sheets and all your documents and spreadsheets.
