Publish Gmail Add-ons to your domain

We extended the Gmail Add-on preview toward the end of last year, so that developers can bring the functionality of business apps they rely on directly into Gmail. Now, we’re also making it easier for you to develop and publish Gmail Add-ons domain-wide. Create add-ons for users to access tools directly in their inbox, like your company directory, HR tools or other CRM solutions.

You can now:

  • Publish Gmail Add-ons to users in your G Suite domain. This lets you build and deploy custom add-ons for workflows or processes that are unique to your company.
  • Install Gmail Add-ons for G Suite accounts before they’re published. This way, you can test your add-on before releasing widely in the workplace.
  • Plus, G Suite admins can install add-ons for their domains. This helps G Suite users perform domain-wide installs for any add-on you build, so more people have the chance to try your add-on (or experiment with add-ons domain-wide).
Check out this video to see what it’s like to build an add-on then start building it yourself with this hands-on codelab. You can also view already-built add-ons in the G Suite Marketplace. Or, if you have another project in mind, submit your add-on idea for consideration.

We’re on a mission to make work easier and a big part of that means giving you the tools you need to speed up workflows. Build on!
