Google have rebranded G Suite to the new Google Workspace – encompassing all the same Google products you know and love. They have even changed their URL to workspace.google.com.

What is Google Workspace?

Google Workspace is the premium platform for Google products and applications, such as Google Drive, Google Docs and Google Meet – for businesses and educators.

For the past 14 years G Suite has been a go-to online platform for collaboration between workplaces, education and research.

Even though Microsoft Office 365 now has online sharing features through OneDrive, Google has been the most popular choice for sharing information and documents between users across the world.

As of April 2020, Google Workspace has 6 million paying businesses, and 120 million G Suite for Education users. That’s impressive numbers.

One of the many benefits of Google Workspace is the free domain email for your business. Even if you don’t have a domain or website, you can set up a custom ‘@your-business.com’ email address.
