Pull rich data from apps directly into Google Docs with third-party smart chips

What’s changing

Last year, we announced that the expansion of smart canvas would include third-party smart chips, a new feature that lets you add, view, and engage with critical information from third party apps directly in Google Docs. Today, we’re excited to share that third-party smart chips in Docs are now generally available for all users. 

Since introducing third-party smart chips, developers have been able to build app integrations. Several partners, including Atlassian, FigmaMiro, and Whimsical, have already created smart chips so users can start embedding content from those apps directly into Docs. 

To access third-party smart chips, an admin or user must first install a partner’s add-on from the Google Workspace Marketplace. After that, simply paste a link from the third-party source into your document and select “tab”. You will then see a smart chip populate in your document that previews critical information from the app, right in the flow of your work.
