Gmail contextual gadgets going away on August 1st, 2018

On August 1st, 2018, we’re planning to shut down all Gmail contextual gadgets. A Gmail contextual gadget is a gadget that is triggered by clues in Gmail, like the content of a subject line or an email message.

We recently launched Gmail Add-ons, which satisfy many of the same needs as Gmail contextual gadgets but also offer a better developer experience, cross-platform support, and more stability. We recommend that admins turn off their contextual gadgets and develop new or install existing Gmail Add-ons to serve their use cases. If Gmail contextual gadgets aren’t removed before August 1st, 2018, they’ll disappear automatically.
