What’s the skinny? Google announced earlier today that they are unifying their productivity applications as well as doing some rebranding. “That solution is Google Workspace: everything you need to get anything done, now in one place.”
Google Workspace will house all the applications you are already familiar with, such as Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, Meet, and many more. The goal is to bring the user a deeper, more integrated user experience, allow teams to collaborate better, help frontline workers stay connected, and give businesses more power to provide a better digital customer experience.
Google productivity apps rebranding
Google designed its rebranding to reflect its commitment to building a new integrated communication and collaboration experience. The new branding will include new four-color icons for Gmail, Drive, Calendar, Meet, and their collaborative content creation tools like Docs, Sheets, Slides that are part of the same family.
Google also says they are going to bring Google Workspace to their education and nonprofit customers in the coming months. For now, their education customers can continue to use the applications and tools they need through G Suite.
