Introducing Google Workspace and a new set of offerings to better meet your needs
We’re excited to announce that G Suite is now Google Workspace: everything you need to get anything done, all in one place. Google Workspace features:
- a deeply integrated user experience that helps teams collaborate more effectively, frontline workers stay connected, and businesses power new digital customer experiences
- a new brand identity that reflects our ambitious product vision and the way our products work together
- new ways to get started with solutions tailored to the unique needs of our broad range of customers
As part of this, we’re evolving our offerings to better serve the diverse purchasing needs of our large and expanding customer base.
- For smaller businesses, we’re introducing tailored offerings that make it easy and cost-effective to get started with Google Workspace— including best-in-class collaboration and productivity tools, security protections, and administrative controls.
- For larger enterprises, we’re introducing a set of offerings with additional productivity features, enterprise-grade administrative controls, and our most advanced security and compliance capabilities, available at both the team and organization level.

Education and Nonprofit customers
We are also bringing Google Workspace to our education and nonprofit customers in the coming months.

G Suite for Nonprofits will continue to be available to eligible organizations through the Google for Nonprofits program.
G Suite Essentials will now be called Google Workspace Essentials. There are no additional changes to Essentials at this time.
The productivity apps you know and love in G Suite aren’t going away—Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Meet, Chat, and all the others will continue to be the foundation of the Google Workspace experience. In the future, we’ll continue to evolve our products to be more flexible, more helpful, and simpler.
