With Google’s G Suite representing their major product for workplace productivity, it is one of Google’s most critical product offerings in that it actually creates direct revenue. Today Google has launched the first major revamp of the service since it launched: say hello to Google Workspace.
Calling this a rebrand with a slap of new colours isn’t completely fair, Google has brought new pricing tears, new features and a deeper link to collaboration to the suite, sorry, Workspace. For those not using Google’s paid offerings, Google has promised to bring enhancements to Google for Education and consumers.
Within the updated offerings Google has widened their branding colours to more apps with Gmail, Calendar, Drive, Google Docs/Sheets/ presentations and Meet all getting the four colour treatment. Check out the updated icons below.
Overall G Suite was ready for a rebrand from at least a design and iconography perspective, hopefully, the other updates and continued development will be beneficial to users. I know there’s one thing that paid users would love, and that’s their Workspace accounts to be granted the same features as free Google accounts when it comes to all of Google’s wider services.
