Google Introduces (Yet Another) New Name for Google for Work

Share this

Google has announced yet another new name for its suite of cloud-based office productivity and collaboration software. The product most-recently known as Google Apps for Work in now called "G Suite." 

According to Google, "[the] new name ... better reflects [their] mission.

The G Suite is a paid version of the tools also available to registered users of Google's free Gmail, including:

  • Gmail
  • Google Calendar
  • Google Docs
  • Google Drive
  • Google Hangouts

The paid version adds business-specific features such as:

  • custom email addresses at your domain (@yourcompany.com)
  • at least 30 GB of storage for documents and email (more storage can be purchased)
  • 24/7 phone and email support
  • administration/management dashboard

The change has no real effect on end-users. We have not seen any changes yet in the functionality of the individual applications in the suite or the administrative dashboard. End-users aren't even seeing the new logo (seen above).

Over it's lifetime, the product has been known by a variety of names, including:

  • Google Docs
  • Google Apps for Your Domain
  • Google Apps 
  • Google for Work
  • G Suite
