Google on Monday announced that it was changing its Workspace services to accommodate every single user with a Google account. This essentially means that all of the company’s three billion-plus user base will soon be able to access all of Google’s powerful Workspace collaboration tools, which were formerly known as G Suite.
Detailing the new changes in a blog post, Google says with the new updated Chat service, updated Docs, Sheets, Slides, Meet, Gmail, and other features, users will soon enjoy better integration.
With the free Workspace upgrade, users will be able to share and keep track of content like videos and images of events and trips, documents including Google Sheets. Meanwhile, the company will also bring powerful @-mentions to Gmail, Calendar, and other Google services for every user.
Smart canvas support is also coming to Google Docs for any user with a Google Account – these will be directly compatible with Google Meet for quick presentations.
“By bringing Google Workspace to everyone, we’re making it easy for people to stay connected, get organized, and achieve more together, whether it’s advancing a cause, planning your family reunion, assigning next steps for the PTA, or discussing this month’s book club pick,” Kelly Waldher, VP Marketing for Google Workspace and Aparna Pappu, VP Engineering for Google Workspace stated.
