Google announces the opening of a Google Account for all Internet users of its Workspace suite, formerly known as G Suite. This offer, which combines Google’s cloud computing tools and software, has so far been intended for paying users.
“Now, more than three billion Google users in the consumer, business and education sectors have access to the full Google Workspace experience,” the company said.
This eliminates the need for users to have a corporate account to use additional features in Meet, Docs, Drive, and more. These features include things like the ability to mention users to add them to tasks in documents or spreadsheets.
“Starting today, you can enable the integrated experience in Google Workspace by enabling Google Chat, and use rooms in Google Chat as a central place to connect, create, and work with other people,” Google notes.
Google is also launching a paid version of its service, called Google Workspace Individual, for small and medium businesses and entrepreneurs. The tech giant notes that this tier offers “premium capabilities, including smart booking services, professional video meetings, personal email marketing, and more.”
Workspace Individual will soon be available in Canada, the United States, Mexico, Brazil, Australia and Japan, priced at $10 per month. With this new service, Google wants to significantly expand its customer base who pay for it a monthly subscription.
