Gmail add-ons are a great feature to add more functionality to your Gmail inbox without using any third-party apps. Some tools are really helpful to get things done more easily than before. These add-ons let you do a certain task without even leaving the current tab. Here’s a little guide for you to search for them, install them, and remove them from your Gmail account if you don’t want unused add-ons.
What are Gmail Add-ons?
Gmail add-ons are similar to Chrome extensions and they are designed to expand the functionality and productivity of Gmail. The difference between an extension and an add-on is that the add-on is installed only on your Gmail app, not on the browser.
Some popular Gmail add-ons are Zoom, Slack, DocuSign, Mailtrack, Evernote, Trello, Classroom Manager, etc.
Steps to Install Gmail Add-ons
Gmail add-ons can be found in the Google Workspace Marketplace.
1. To add an add-on to your Gmail, go to the G Suite Marketplace.
2. Click on the “Works with Gmail” from the side menu bar.
3. Now, you will see a list of add-ons that are compatible with Gmail. You can use the search bar here to search for a suitable add-on and click on it.
