Use add-ons & Apps Script

Install and use add-ons (English only)

You can use add-ons to do more with Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms. Visit the Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms add-on stores to see what is available. 

Important: Google Editor add-ons are moving from the Chrome Web Store to the G Suite Marketplace. Note the following: 

  • If an add-on hasn't been moved to the G Suite Marketplace, you won't be able to install it. 
  • If you've previously installed an add-on that hasn't been moved to the G Suite Marketplace, you'll still be able to use it. If you uninstall the add-on, you won't be able to reinstall it on G Suite Marketplace. 
  • If you're working on a document with others, and you turn on an add-on that hasn't moved to the G Suite Marketplace, only people who have previously installed that add-on will be able to use it. 
  • Some previously installed add-ons might need to be re-installed across Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms. Learn how to install an add-on. 
  • If you're a developer, learn how to migrate your add-ons to the G Suite Marketplace
