With Google’s annual developer conference going on, the company is pumping out news about developing things. Makes sense, I guess.

Google’s online office suite is not going untouched. The company is pushing new APIs that allow app makers to integrate more closely with Sheets and Slides. One enables developers to export data directly to Sheets, let users make edits, and then import those changes back into the app.

This functionality is available today, and you can get started at developers.google.com/sheets.

The Slides API can push charts into slides using data compiled in a separate app. Unlike Sheets, this API isn’t ready just yet. Google says you can expect a release in the coming months and sign up at developers.google.com/slides for early access.

Sheets and Slides both see heavy use in classrooms. On that note, Google is pushing one more API. The company previously launched a way for developers to integrate their apps with Google Classroom. Now it’s pushing deeper integration.

Example uses of the Classroom API includes coursework endpoints which enable developers to access assignments and grades, plus the ability to load and store information in Drive. Check out developers.google.com/classroom to get started, and hit up the source links for more details.

    Hi @FSMcas:disqus, I’m the developer of Plughy. I get your frustration about it being a link and not the GIF itself. But as @phil_oakley:disqus already mentio1 this is not really possible. I’m already very happy that I achieved this much with Plughy (listening for text changes, i1erting text etc.).
    But… I have an idea for showing the GIFs as well! Will work on that in the future. Next to that, a small pop-up with 3-6 GIFs is also on the feature list. This way you can see search results and select the GIF you want to sent :).
    Any other questio1 or remarks, just let me know!
