Yesterday Google has launched separate add-on stores for Google Docs and Sheets. Once you install an add-on it will become available across all of your documents or spreadsheets and you can start using it right away.
You use Google Docs and Sheets to browse through add-ons for Docs and Sheets, select Get add-ons in the Addons menu of any open document or spreadsheet. (Add-ons for spreadsheets are only available in the new Google Sheets). Today I discussed about 4 Google Docs Add-on feature:
Google Map for Docs
This add-on will insert a Google Map in your open doc.
Simply select the entire address text, click “Get Location” menu item, review the Google Map, and click “Paste to doc” button.
* Each address must be entirely in one line. If the address is splitted in several lines, this will not work.
* It’s possible to get the location from multiple addresses, but each line need to have a complete address.
EasyBib Bibliography Creator

The Bibliography Creator by EasyBib allows you to easily create a bibliography for your research paper. Automatically cite books, journal articles, and websites just by entering in the titles or URLs. Format citations in MLA, APA, and Chicago style.

Clicking on a table of contents heading in the sidebar will move your cursor to that section of the document. After selecting a format in the list, clicking on the refresh button will number automatically your document’s headings.
Texthelp Highlighting Tools
Use Texthelp’s Highlighting Tools to select and highlight key areas of your document to collect, group, and learn from later. Simply highlight the selected text, and the tool will extract it and place it in a new document (by color or location) for students or their educators to review. Used by educators in the classroom to help students identify and group key facts together, collect words to learn, or for collecting research areas to assist studying. Texthelp’s Highlighting Tools are great for almost all content and grade levels.
