Introducing G Suite

In: BlogDate: Sep 30, 2016By: Claire Lickman

Google has announced they are rebranding Google Apps for Work into the G Suite, consolidating all of their cloud-based services under one Google Cloud umbrella.

Hi, we are Happy

We are leading a movement to create happy, empowered and productive workplaces.

How can we help you and your people to find joy in at least 80% of your work?

More about Happy

The new Google Cloud portfolio will include all of Google’s cloud-based products to help you work more efficiently and collaboratively with your team. This includes Android phones, tablets and Chromebooks, as well as its machine learning tools, Google Apps and APIs. It’s designed for customers of all sizes, from local business, small start ups to international organisations. Within this, Google Apps for Work is now a formalised package which includes Gmail, Google Docs, Google Sheet, Google Slides, Google+, Google Calendar, Google Hangouts and Google Forms – all labelled G Suite.

All of this is designed to emphasise the future and the importance of cloud-based working and collaborating:

"What if technology lived up to its promise for us at work? What if it helped us cut through the noise so we could work together to focus on what matters?

We created Google Apps for Work ten years ago (back when it was Google Apps for Your Domain) to do just that — to help people everywhere work and innovate together, so businesses can move faster and go bigger.

And today, we’re introducing a new name that better reflects this mission: G Suite."
