Google has approved third party add-ons in Gmail as promised earlier this year. Native add-ons will be offered inside Gmail from Tuesday, Oct. 24.

In a post on a blog stated that Google spoke to developers telling them that they can “easily create add-ons for your app or your organization” which can be done by writing their add-on code once then it will run natively in Gmail on web and android “Instantly.”
