Google Workspace add-ons are already doing a lot of cool and beneficial things for Gmail users.
In addition to offering new ways to interact with other daily used apps, Google Workspace add-ons for Gmail are about to become more feature-rich.
The new compose-time functionality will allow third-party add-ons to alter and format messages in Gmail. With the new and enhanced functionality, users will be able to –
- make modifications to the To, CC, and BCC fields
- adjust the subject line
- insert content to the beginning and end of the message and more
These new compose-time functionality enhancements require the user’s authorisation to access the features. Once authorised, they will work in both Gmail on the web and mobile. However, Google Workspace Admins are the only ones that can whitelist which third-party add-ons they want to be enabled for their organisation – for security reasons.
