Google has reportedly announced third-party add-on support for its Docs and Sheets, which would let outside developers have a chance at designings features and tools for the web documents.
The third-party developers would be able to offer up integrations that can help with specific tasks, like printing labels or sending customized emails.
According to Cnet, the idea is to give users access to tools that other engineers have dreamed up, instead of only having to rely on what Google has built.
Users can install the add-ons by simply opening up a Google doc or spreadsheet, click on the "Add-on" menu, and then hit the "Get add-on" to browse through the list and install.
There are 30 add-ons available at launch, including Avery Label Merge, which allows users to import addresses or names from Sheets into Docs for printing, Bibliography Creator, which installs a side menu to a document where users can plug in information to properly populate a citation, and a Mailchimp integration lets one pull info from a spreadsheet to a doc to create customized email messages.
Google said that more add-on were on their way, the report added.
