Google Workspace Marketplace is not quite like the Google Play store where you can get millions of free apps. In fact, the Google Workspace Marketplace is crowded with paid apps and the one which seems free ended up being just a trial version. Being a Google Workspace user, I have found that there are multiple apps that are out there in the marketplace but need some recognization.
After creating a list of best Google Workspace marketplace app, which are mostly paid, I thought why not make a list of free Google Workspace app that can automate a lot of your work. I also found that some of these free apps are rather better than paid apps. So without further ado, let’s install these apps.
Here is the list of 8 free Google Workspace Marketplace Apps that I like so far.
Works with → Gmail
One of my favorite tools for Gmail is Mailtrack. It makes my emailing experience so easier with a lot of tracking options it offers, all for free. Using Mailtrack you will never miss any important conversation. I think this app is most valuable for sales experts, freelancers, and direct customer relationships. All you need to install this app from the Google Workspace Marketplace and install the extension from the Chrome app store.

PDF is the most portable, reliability and secure document type that is popular among Financial Institutes, Education, Medical Sector, Small Businesses, etc. However, one of the frustrating things about PDFs is that they are not easy to edit.

Here is what ZIP Extractor does for your archived files.
