Google has rebranded it’s ten-year old service Google Apps for Work which would be now knows as G Suite. Google also noted a handful of upgrades and improvements in G Suite’s existing product lineup, which includes apps like Drive, Docs, Spreadsheets, Slides, Calendar, Hangouts, and more.
Google created Google Apps for Work ten years ago (back when it was Google Apps for Your Domain) to do just that — to help people everywhere work and innovate together, so businesses can move faster and go bigger and now with the new name that better reflects this mission: G Suite.
According to Ryan Tabone, Google’s director of product management for the G Suite, the company wanted to make it clear to potential enterprise users that that this is a unified collection of tools and not simply a set of individual offerings.
To reflect this philosophy G Suite name was offered which is a set of intelligent apps—Gmail, Docs, Drive, Calendar, Hangouts, and more—designed to bring people together, with real-time collaboration built in from the start. And there’s a lot more on the way. Because we believe that when organizations break down silos, connect people and empower them to work together, we get the speed, agility and impact needed to compete in today’s market.
With G Suite, information can flow freely between devices, apps, people and teams, so great ideas never get left in the margins again.
Google is bringing machine intelligence to more services, starting with Google Drive. Features like Quick Access in Drive on Android will take 50% off the average time it takes to get to the right file, by eliminating the need to search for it. With the advanced capabilities of machine learning, you’ll have the access to the files which you need even before you type it in your device.
Google is also bringing TEAM Drive
Team Drive focuses on managing content ownership and sharing at a team level, and introduces new roles that allow more control and access to the folders on team level
