Android add-ons can be found in Google Play, as well as directly from the add-on menus in Docs or Sheets.

Google on Thursday rolled out a series of third-party add-ons to Google Docs and Sheets, making it easier to use the tools from a mobile device.

The internet giant partnered with eight other companies to create the add-ons. For instance, a DocuSign add-on allows users to to pull up a document already saved in Google Docs and prepare it to be signed.

"The secure and reliable signing from DocuSign paired with the power and speed of Google Apps brings you to the next level of productivity," explained DocuSign on it's blog.

Other add-ons include the ProsperWorks Customer Report Builder, which pulls ProsperWorks CRM data into Google Sheets, and a Scanbot add-on, which allows a user to scan printed text documents and insert extracted information into a document.

Other partners include AppSheet, PandaDoc, ZohoCRM, Teacher Aide, and EasyBib.
