Digital signage integrations are like rainbow sprinkles — you can eat your ice cream without them, but why would you want to?

Connecting your signage system to third-party apps can turn boring ol’ slideshows into dynamic displays.

But what integrations should you add to the mix? And better question, what’s even out there? We rounded up some of the best so you can let those creative sparks fly.

The best digital signage integrations are:

  1. Power BI
  2. Google Drive
  3. TV Dashboards
  4. YouTube
  5. World Weather
  6. Google Calendar
  7. Dropbox
  8. HTML Embed 
  10. PosterMyWall

Let’s take a closer look.

Understanding the best digital signage integrations

There are so many things you can do with digital signage integrations. From showing off your company spirit to sharing data with frontline teams, the world is literally your oyster (er, audience, I guess).

At Fugo, we’ve made it easy to connect with the content providers, social media platforms, and dashboard companies you’re already using. That way, you can upgrade your signage and integrate multiple tools into content creation and publication workflows. Think Canva for TV screens, but built specifically for digital signage.

So without further ado, let’s start with one of our favorite integrations:

1. Microsoft Power BI

It’s hard not to love the sheer power of Power BI. By integrating your data into a digital signage platform, it’s easier than ever to break down silos for your team.

You’re likely already familiar with Power BI — you can collect, share, and synthesize business data into a single local. 

But what about the benefits of integrating with Fugo?

  • Integrate data with your digital signage without paying for viewer license fees
  • Securely display TV dashboards without having to worry about unwanted interlopers
  • Display data in large areas where people need updated info quickly (like conference rooms, sales offices, and warehouses)

While Fugo’s integration with Power BI is included in a subscription to Fugo’s Core plan, you still have to pay for a Power BI plan if you plan on sharing dashboards with individual users (starting at $10 per user per month).

2. Google Drive

If you own Google Workspace, there’s a good chance everyone in your company is using Google Drive. So why not integrate it with your digital signage? Doing so comes with a number of benefits, including a simplified content publication schedule. 

Let’s say you have an ever-changing gallery of content, but you don’t have time to manually upload and publish each file. With a Google Drive integration, you can add and update necessary content, then adjust the duration of each file (or let the auto settings do their thing).

This means you can:

  • Share entire folders of images, documents, and videos
  • Sync live updates as they’re made
  • Set the playback order for your list

If you already have a Google Drive account, you can integrate with Fugo in 15 minutes or less.

3. TV Dashboards

Ah, TV dashboards: the not-so-secret secret of highly successful teams. While it’s not exactly an ‘integration’ in the typical sense of the word, it’s quite possibly one of the best features you could add to your digital signage program.

TV dashboards are available on every Fugo plan so you can get up and running fast. All you have to do is sign up for a free trial to integrate with your third-party dashboard/business intelligence/KPI platforms.

The benefits speak for themselves:

  • You can scale the reach of your data by sharing it on TV screens, rather than massive email distribution flows or purchasing extra user seats for your data platform
  • Users can access just about any web page or dashboard sitting behind a secure login. 
  • Cut your costs and deliver data to frontline workers — all at the same time!

You can sign up for a 14-day free trial with Fugo and set up your first TV dashboard in minutes.

4. YouTube

Did you know video content can be six times more engaging than static imagery? If you’re not using YouTube to empower your brand, you could be missing out on a world of amazing benefits.

Enter YouTube: one of the world’s biggest video repositories. Even if you don’t publish your own content on YouTube, you can easily connect with third-party video or audio. 

Imagine streaming quality video to highlight your product or service. Well, that’s what this integration was designed to do!

Other use cases include:

  • Putting your own product or service on display
  • Broadcasting your livestreams to employees
  • Creating and playing video playlists (including music)
  • Muting video and adding subtitles in quiet environments

To get started, all you have to do is copy/paste the video URL into your Fugo integration. From there, you’re free to stream video content as long as you please. Just check out the details in our guide below.

5. World Weather

Small talk champions, this one is for you.

A full integration with the Fugo weather app lets you forecast the temperature in any location (and on any screen). If you don’t want to dedicate an entire screen to the weather, you can configure it into a unique design for your display using the Fugo Design Studio.

This weather app is extremely helpful in outdoor working environments (or places where workers might need to know about changing weather conditions). Drivers or shippers, for example, need to think about the weather before leaving your facility. Convenient signage explaining the details can help them evaluate conditions before hitting the road.

It’s easy to customize your display however you see fit:

  • Display the weather in 150 different languages
  • Change units from Celsius or Fahrenheit
  • Show a 3-day forecast of weather in any area

There are a few other benefits to keep in mind. With automatic updates, your signage instantly updates to the most recent forecast — no need to manually change the data. Plus, you can customize your display with any image or animation you choose. How’s that for white-labeled signage?

Best of all, it doesn’t cost a penny to integrate with the Fugo weather app. You can add it into your content playlists any time.

6. Google Calendar

This is yet another must-have integration for frontline teams and busy professionals. An on-display calendar keeps meetings top of mind and ensures your corporate events don’t fall through the cracks.

If you already have a Google Workspace account, you can integrate your Google calendar in a matter of minutes. Then, you can reap the benefits of digital signage, including:

  • The ability to share any calendar on your Google account
  • The power to display Google calendar events by month, week, or agenda
  • The magic of automatic editing anytime you adjust an event on your Google calendar

This is also a 100% free integration. Google Workspace accounts, however, do cost money. If you don’t already have a plan, you can check out Google Workspace’s pricing here.

7. Dropbox

If you’re not using Google Drive to power your file sharing, you’re probably using Dropbox. The good news? Fugo integrates with any Dropbox plan so you can keep track of content without losing your sanity.

The same benefits you can get with our Google Drive integration also apply to Dropbox. Not only can you easily upload image or video folders, but you can also change out frequently-updated documents like menus, wine lists, or business hours.

You can also:

  • Customize the order in which content displays on-screen
  • Change the length of time each piece of content remains on-screen
  • Personalize background images and pick your favorite transitions

As always, this is a free integration for users who already have a Dropbox account. If you’re not already paying for a plan, you can start with a free Basic account and see what you think.

8. HTML Embed

So HTML Embed isn’t an integration per se. But since it allows you to embed custom apps or widgets, it facilitates integrations so to speak.

First, you install the HTML Embed App. Then, you enter your snippets of code. Now just sit back, relax, and enjoy your visually-appealing content. Best of all, it doesn’t cost a dime!

Imagine what you could do in just a few clicks:

  • Seamlessly render content with pure HTML in proper markup (including divs and inline CSS).
  • Turn anything from web pages to online service into eye-catching content for your screens.
  • Automatically update the content behind your embeddable code (with no manual effort required).

Not sure what kinds of embeddable material you should add to your display? Think third-party reviews, Google Maps, countdown clocks, and more.


You don’t need us to remind you that content is king. Social media in particular can be a major draw for customers. That’s what makes such a powerful integration for digital signage: it’s putting your brand to work for engagement, awareness, and social proof.

For the unfamiliar, lets you build social walls for trade shows, lobbies, and points of sale. In addition to aggregating hashtags or mentions, you can also set up live polls and reactions to maintain the flow of engagement.

There are so many possibilities for x Fugo:

  • Upload content to your social media wall without actually posting it on social media
  • Use moderation and filtration tools to remove anything you don’t want on display
  • Gather insights or improve team morale with a flood of positive reinforcement from customers

A basic plan will let you connect with a single social media platform. If you want to connect with more than one, you need to upgrade to their Professional plan.

10. PosterMyWall

If you love the idea of building posters for your business, you’re going to love our PosterMyWall integration. This is perfect for portrait-style screens needing a pop of color, visual interest, or movement.

You can use PosterMyWall in a lot of different use cases. Think:

  • Menus
  • Discounts
  • Social graphics
  • Events / webinars
  • New products
  • E-paper screens
  • Holidays
  • And more!

Just keep in mind you need a paid account to get PosterMyWall graphics without watermarks. 

Psst — if you like the idea of working with templates but don't want to add another tool to the tech stack, Fugo offers dozens of free signage templates you can tinker with at any time.
