Google Workspace Transition Information

Blog / Google Workspace Transition Information

Google recently announced the launch of Google Workspace, the new and improved G Suite. Google Workspace includes all of the productivity apps you know and love—Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Meet, and many more.
