Google has snuck out some rather cool new functionality to its cloud based productivity suite Google Drive.
Called add-ons, you can now use them to add extra functionality to your Google Docs and Spreadsheets experience.
Here’s a video explaining it all:
So what are these add-ons and what do they do?
Lucky for us that Lifehacker has produced a list of the best ones. They include:
- HelloFax, which lets you fax a Google Doc without leaving the app
- Mapping sheets lets you take a spreadsheet full of address information and put it all on a Google Map
- UberConference – lets you set up and run a conference call from within your Google Doc. Great for collaborating across distances
- Track Changes – gives you reviewing tools a bit more like those you are used to in Word
These are just some of those currently available – it will be interesting to see what will come in time as developers get to work.
