Google’s Docs and Sheets app for Android, one of the company’s most used office program, has just been equipped with new add-ons. The update is meant to make it easier for users to work on their official documents on their mobile devices.
The add-ons – which are third-party services – can be accessed and downloaded from the Google Play Store or directly via the Docs and Sheets app. Google Docs is the very worthy rival of Microsoft’s Word, so the new features could help it become more appreciated by users.
Many people are forced to work on the go, so devices have become more powerful and intricate so as to allow them to perform even the more complicated tasks. These add-ons offer many features, such as DocuSign, which lets you prepare a contract for e-signing.
You can also put CRM data in spreadsheet form or use Scanbot to scan pages and create editable text. The initial set of the add-ons for Docs and Sheets required several partnerships, but the results were worth it.
Add-ons like EasyBib, Teacher Aide, ZohoCRM, PandaDoc, and Google Classroom are all working together to make your job easier. Use AppSheet to create apps without having to learn how to write code; try ProperWorks to create and update graphs, reports, and dashboards.
Back in April this year, Google rolled out an update for its Drive app which allowed users to download Sheets, Slide, and Docs files to edit offline. When you enabled offline access in Google Drive, a copy of their Sheets, Docs, and Slides files was then synced to your computer or device.
All of these third party services have long been available for desktop software, in addition to a long list of add-ons available for Google Drive and Google Apps. The company’s approach to mobile seems to come in rather late, but the update will likely appeal to many people who need their smartphones to do office work.
Google Play Store now has a limited yet respectable collection of Android Add-ons which work seamlessly. The list is expected to increase as Google signs with more partners.
