Many people don’t know that Google operates a Marketplace, like an app store, with hundreds of add-ons and managers that work with the Google Workspace (formerly G Suite) applications like Google Drive and Google Meet video conferencing. These add-ons are similar to the browser extensions you can add to your Chrome browser but even better! The software works on top of your Google Workspace applications no matter where you are or what device you are using. In fact, most of them work just as seamlessly from your phone as they do from a desktop.

Find the ones that make sense for you and you’ll be well on your way!
