G Suite is now Google Workspace: Meet, Drive and everything you need to work in one place

Google says goodbye to G Suite and welcomes Google Workspace. The enterprise suite that brings together the communication, collaboration and productivity tools of the Big G has been rebranded and now offers a more integrated experience. In September 2016, Google introduced the world to G Suite, its suite of paid communication, collaboration and productivity tools aimed at businesses. Now that our way of working is transforming and that teleworking is here to stay, those in Mountain View consider that it is time to rethink this service, which from today will be called Google Workspace. Google Workspace brings together all the Big G tools for working in one place, but with a new tightly integrated new user experience, a new brand identity and new ways of implementation. “Everything you need to do anything, now you have it in one place. Google Workspace includes all the productivity applications you already know and love: Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Presentations, Meet and many more “, explains Javier Soltero, VP and GM of Google Workspace. on the company blog. “Google Workspace is the best way to create, communicate and collaborate.” More integrated user experience To offer a new, smoother user experience, the new Google suite will provide greater integration between the different tools. The company has already taken some steps in this direction, for example by integrating Meet into Gmail, but we will see more possibilities soon. Thus, starting today, when someone’s name is mentioned with an @ in a document, their contact details will be displayed and suggested actions will appear, such as adding the person to your contacts, writing them an email, or starting a video call. On the other hand, in the coming weeks it will be possible to dynamically create and collaborate on a document with guests from a chat room, to make it easier to work with people outside the company, it will be possible to preview a file. Another novelty is that, in the coming weeks, Meet’s Picture-in-Picture feature will be available in Docs, Spreadsheets and Presentations. This feature is very useful for remote work, since it allows us to see and hear the people with whom we are working in real time. New brand identity Google Workspaces also launches a new brand identity that allows a better relationship between the different tools integrated in the package. Google has introduced new logos for Gmail, Google Drive, Google Calendar, and Google Meet, which will be visible to everyone in the coming weeks. The new icons include the company’s corporate colors (red, yellow, blue and green) and follow common lines that allow them to be related at a glance. The new Google Workspace offers different plans with prices starting at 4.68 euros per month. They all include Gmail, Drive, Meet, Calendar, Chat, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Keep, Sites, Forms, and Currents. In this link you can check the details of each of them and their prices.
