The Google Sheets spreadsheet editor is a powerful tool for many tasks. In addition, the tool is free and available wherever there is an Internet connection. However, just as you can increase the flight range of an aircraft by attaching external tanks, so the functionality of Google Sheets can be extended by "hanging" several extensions (add-ons) to the editor.

The list of extensions to Google Sheets consists of dozens of programs for a variety of situations and areas of activity. We will talk about just a few tools for different purposes so that you get an idea of the possibilities of extensions.
