Google recently rebranded and included a lot of new features with Google Workspace.
Similar to G Suite, all Google Workspace plans provide a custom email for your business and includes collaboration tools like Gmail, Calendar, Meet, Chat, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, Sites, and more.
Google Workspace continues the evolution of G Suite. In fact, it’s not even the first name change. The service was originally called “Google Apps for Your Domain.” Later, it was rebranded to simply “Google Apps,” before it was eventually renamed to “G Suite” in 2016.
Google talked about how the name “G Suite” had the connotation of a very traditional work environment. As the concept of a workspace changed, it felt the name needed to invoke that shift.
At the core, Google Workspace is the same service as G Suite. It’s the culmination of several changes Google made throughout 2020. The separate tools have deeper integration with each other. Rather than jump between Gmail, Docs, Meet, etc., everything is available in one central spot
Is Google Workspace Free?
Google Workspace is not a free service, though all the tools available in Workspace do have free consumer versions. There are a few different pricing tiers to match the needs of your organization. Starting from $8.4AUD
At the bare minimum, everyone in the Workspace gets a custom and secure business email address, video meetings, cloud storage, and support. From there, it depends on how large your organization is and what advanced features you want.
The main take away here is Google Workspace is the natural evolution of G Suite. It offers the same set of tools and premium features for a price, with some additions thrown on top. If you used G Suite in the past, Workspace offers the same experience.
