Calling all developers: try our developer preview today!
As you can see from above, Android add-ons offer a great opportunity to build
innovative integrations and reach Docs and Sheets users around the world.
They’re basically Android apps that connect with Google Apps Script projects
on the server-side, allowing them to access and manipulate data from Google Docs

Android add-ons are available today as a developer preview. We look forward to
seeing what you build!

What about the existing Email Settings API in the Admin SDK?
This update to the Gmail API effectively replaces the older Email Settings
API, so we're also announcing its deprecation today and will turn
it down fully on July 7, 2017. We've put together a migration
guide to assist clients in porting their existing integrations over to their
