Extensions and Apps for Teachers and Students
Extensions, Apps and Add-Ons
Extensions affect something global on your browser. When you install the extension, that feature is available on every single site you visit. Extensions use downloaded components to modify your browser.
Apps are basically websites. They run within Chrome's browser, and they may not even require any downloads. Sometimes they may need to install a small component on your local machine, but that will only make a difference when you're using that particular Web app.
Add-Ons are tools in Google Drive that are built by third-party developers and allow increased functionality in docs, sheets and forms.
