Desktop add-ons for Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms

Apps Script makes it easy to create and publish add-ons in an online store for Google Sheets, Docs, Slides, and Forms. There’s no better way to distribute scripts to large numbers of users, whether you want to ship your code to the whole world or keep it private to the users in your G Suite domain.

Android add-ons for Docs and Sheets

Developers can use Apps script to connect Android apps to the Google Docs and Sheets apps on Android. This allows users to pass data to and from their Docs and Sheets to those apps, all from their mobile device.

A living, breathing platform (well, metaphorically)

  • The Gmail add-ons framework is now available to all developers.
  • A new Card service supports Gmail add-ons by defining several UI widget elements that you can use to create a Gmail add-on interface without HTML or CSS. These widgets function on both desktop and mobile. You can only use the Card service in a Gmail add-on project.
  • You can now view and explicitly edit Apps Script project manifests. These files give you more direct control of project properties.
  • You can now directly control the OAuth scopes that your project requests during authorization. Use this control to prevent your script project from asking for more access than it needs.
  • You can now deploy a script project directly from the project manifest.
  • We've updated the Publish script editor menu item to more accurately represent the various kinds of deployments a project can have, such as add-on, web app, or API executable deployments.
