Google Workspace vs. G Suite: What's the Difference?


Google is continually adapting to the changing work environment to cater to the needs of businesses and organizations. Google Workspace is the latest edition of its cloud-hosted productivity, communication, and collaboration tools. 

Prior to Google Workspace, Google launched Google Apps for Your Domain (GAppsFYD) in 2006. GAppsFYD offered free services like Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Talk, and other apps to manage using your own domain. 

GAppsFYD became G Suite in 2016. G Suite was arguably one of the most powerful productivity and collaboration tools available for businesses and organizations. Many of the apps and services that organizations relied on became accessible through a simplified cloud platform. Over 6 million businesses around the world relied on G Suite for communication and collaboration tools. 

On October 6, 2020, Google announced the transition from G Suite to Google Workspace. This was a timely evolution as more businesses relied on remote work and cloud technology for business operations. 

Google Workspace provides competitive communication, productivity, and collaboration tools with seamless integration. Like G Suite, Google Workspace offers security and management tools at varying levels depending on the subscription type.
