Introducing G Suite from Google Cloud. G Suite, contains the same applications that Google Apps for Work did; Gmail, Calendar, Hangouts, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, Sites but now Google+ is included as a fully supported product.All you need to do your best work, together in one package that works seamlessly from your computer, phone or tablet.
The announcement of G Suite comes around the 10 Year anniversary of the launch of the original Google Apps for Your Domain offering and Google is now claiming Two million paying business and enterprise customers use Google Apps for Work (G Suite).
Google Apps for Work provided a clearer definition of what the offering did, whereas G Suite is a more generic term akin to Microsoft's Office 365, which they have always struggled to explain.
Most of the stuff that are in the G Suite are things you may probably use already. So the re-branding may not really affect much of your personal workflow. But As per Google,the real-time collaboration will be built into this system, and they will be incorporating changes over the next few weeks into each of the apps included in G Suite. These changes include having better access to files in the cloud storage, a more intelligent way of scheduling on Google Calendar, improvements on Sheets, Docs, and Slides, etc.
What's new about G Suite?
Google says they are focusing G Suite on Three areas: organisations, employees and teams.
At the organisational level, G Suite will allow administrators to configure Springboard, Google’s new cross application search feature, to search not just G Suite applications, but also 3rd party content as well.
For employees, they want to make creating content easier. To do this they have enhanced the former feature called Research into a new tool called Explore. Explore searches for information, images and other content on the web (via Google search) and makes it easy to insert into Google Docs.Users of Google Docs should find the new Explore function helpful when creating content.
Google has made to G Suite to help people get work done include:
Find A Time, a smart meeting scheduler that help people book meetings.
Quick Access, which makes it easy to add attachments from Drive by placing your newest and most frequent files just a click away
For teams, Google has introduced Team Drives, which can make files available to everyone at the domain level, instead of individual owners which then have to grant access to other colleagues. Hangouts have also been enhanced, making it easier to dial into meeting and record meetings and save the recording to Drive.
The new name and logo will appear in the Google Admin console, online help, and email notifications. G Suite is still the same all-in-one solution that you use every day, with the same powerful tools like Gmail, Docs, Drive, and Calendar. Your services and pricing remain the same.
