Google is trying to make its productivity apps more useful on Android using third party apps. Functionalities can now be imported into Google Docs and Sheet from third party apps like DocuSign, ProsperWorks & Scanbot. Users can accomplish tasks like electronically sign documents, access CRM data, and create mobile apps based on data saved on a spreadsheet using third party add-ons. These add-ons are intended help users get the work done on the go via Google Spreadsheet and Docs.
Both Google and Microsoft are in a race to top with each other and in the process of utilizing the power of third party apps, the users prefer to attract them. As of now a small set of add-ons is available from a selected set of Google partners. Users can design their own add-ons in future and send them to Google, upon confirmation from the company depending on the usability of the add-on it will incorporate it into Sheets and Docs. Google’s productivity software on the web contains functionality builds on existing partner integration. Users accessing services from their desktop can avail these integrations.
These add-ons can be accessed from the add-on section of Sheets and Docs and also in the add-on collection in Play store. The hinted about bringing these features to the iOS but nothing in specific has been disclosed.
