The Google Workspace Marketplace is a directory of third-party applications that integrate with Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Docs/Sheets/Slides, and Forms. Its “Recommended for Google Workspace” apps program is a “distinct way for third-party developers to better reach” customers and the 2022 edition is out today.
Google is highlighting 12 tools in particular. They have been reviewed by the company and undergone a third-party security assessment. Overall, the Marketplace is home to 5,300 public apps and has seen over 4.8 billion installs.
Partners who submit their apps will be evaluated based on the quality of their solution, their strategic investment in Google Workspace integrations, and security and privacy posture.
After your domain enables, you might see them in the sidebar or more deeply integrated. Many offer functionality that first-party Google applications do not have and are often geared towards specific enterprise use cases.
