Now rolling out: SharePoint Add-in Web Parts in modern pages

We are pleased to announce that we are rolling out new capabilities to modern pages that let users add app parts from SharePoint add-ins. With this new capability, the set of available parts for modern pages expands considerably, and now includes dozens of options from the SharePoint Store. There are many new possibilities for page designers to tailor their sites to specific needs and scenarios – as part of designing out new sites, make sure you visit the SharePoint Store to see all the available add-ins available for use.

For developers, SharePoint Add-ins continue play a significant role as an option for developers to extend the user experience of SharePoint. Along with the SharePoint Framework, where developers can build new web parts using client-side development techniques and open JavaScript tools and technologies, add-ins provide developers with more options in building out integrations. Provider-Hosted SharePoint Add-ins streamline how application developers build new applications using the platform of their choice, or bring existing in existing applications, and connect them into SharePoint sites. Alternately, developers can host their application scripts and resources directly in SharePoint via SharePoint-hosted add-ins.

Add-ins provide several integration mechanisms, including user experience integrations with app parts and custom actions, as well as process integrations with remote event receivers.

Finally, SharePoint Add-ins can be made available to site owners and users via the SharePoint Store, increasing their discoverability across users of Office 365 and on-premises SharePoint. Add-ins can be deployed at different scopes within a tenancy or farm – for example, to specific site collections, with specific controls over application security and access.

These capabilities are now more broadly available with support for add-ins in modern pages. You can get started by browsing the SharePoint Store, and discovering the many new options that add-ins can provide to your modern pages.
