Google has announced the implementation of its add-on feature on the Gmail client, with both the desktop web client and Android app benefiting from the move.

Google has finally implemented the addition of native add-ons to the Gmail client. The company announced the launch of the feature earlier in the year and it has finally made its way into consumer hands after spending months exclusive to developer previews.

The add-ons feature has been available to other Google services like Docs and Drive for a long time now, but has only just made its way to the world's most popular email client. Google has kicked off the venture with partnerships with Trello, DialPad, Wrike, Asana, and Intuit QuickBooks. Docusign is said to be set to launch their own add-on, one that will allow users sign documents digitally without having to go through extra hoops.

This feature will be available to both the web client and the Android app, with an installation on the web reflecting on the app. Users of Google's Inbox by Gmail, however, will not be getting the new feature at the moment.

You can find a list of available add-ons here.
