Install and allowlist Classroom add-ons

This article is for administrators.

As a Google Workspace administrator, you can set up Classroom add-ons so teachers can share engaging activities and content with students. Add-ons can be attached to assignments, quiz assignments, questions, materials, or announcements.

What you need to use add-ons in Classroom

  • You must be using Google Workspace for Education Plus or the Teaching and Learning upgrade.
  • Add-ons can only be created and assigned on the web version of Classroom.
  • Add-ons can be viewed, completed, and graded on both the web and mobile versions of Classroom

Set up an add-on

There are 2 ways for administrators to set up an add-on:

  • Domain install: Install an add-on for all teachers within your domain
  • Allowlist: Allow teachers to individually install add-ons

  1. Go to Google Workspace Marketplace.
  2. On the left, click Works with Classroom.
  3. Browse the available Classroom add-ons. 
  4. Click the add-on you want to install for your domain.
  5. Click Install.

From the Admin console:

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

  3. Click Add app to Admin Install list.

FAQs

Do I need a subscription or licenses for each Classroom add-on?

Some Classroom add-ons require a subscription to access some or all of the content. Access to different add-ons varies by product. 

To learn more about the requirements for an add-on, or to get support with using an add-on, find the add-on in Google Workspace Marketplace.
