Gmail Add-ons for workflows was first made available in the developer preview earlier this year. But, now the add-ons are available for the end users to install. This feature will eliminate the act of switching between business apps during your workflow. As of now, ten add-ons are available to use and one coming soon.
How To install an add-on in Gmail
You have through the settings in Gmail and select “Get add-ons” to add any of your choice. Here, are the list of add-ons available right now :
