Google G Suite becomes Google Workspace

Google is rebranding its G Suite platform to Google Workspace, which has already rolled out with new features.

Three major developments

In the new Google Workspace, Google has put together all its major productivity apps such as Gmail, Calendar, Docs, Sheets, Slides, and more. This is where Google hopes its users will work whether they’re in an office or on the frontlines with mobile devices.

There are three major developments included in Google Workspace which touch the user experience, new brand identity and new ways to get started with solutions.

New user experience

In Google Workspace you’ll be able to dynamically create and collaborate on a document with guests in a chat room. You’ll also be able to preview a linked file without having to open a new tab.

When mentioning someone that your working with, contact details will be shown and you’ll be given suggested actions like adding this person to contacts or start a conversation with them via email, chat, or video.
