Bug Description

Ubuntu-restricted-extras is a package which I recommend for installation to every new Ubuntu user. However, currently it isn't shown under the ubuntu-software (gnome-software). So, I don't want to recommend new users to use terminal in order to install something simple as that. Is it possible to include it under gnome-software, maybe under the "Add-ons" category?

I don't know if this can be done easily, but maybe you can hack it somehow?

To do this you'd have to provide AppStream data with that package.
