ITS and Google only support the official mobile apps offered by Google for use with U-M Google accounts. ITS does not provide end-user support for third-party add-ons and apps other than to ensure they are available for use at U-M.

The following add-ons are available in U-M Google. Their vendors provide support for the apps below.

Add-ons vs. Extensions
An extension is something that you add to your web browser to customize your experience while browsing the web (e.g., Google Chrome). An add-on is something that you add directly to a product like Google Docs, Forms, Mail, etc., to extend these products' capabilities and functionality. Extensions do not need to be approved for use in U-M Google, whereas add-ons do. However, the same third-party warnings apply to extensions as they do add-ons, and caution should be used when installing these within your browser.
