How Google Workspace Came About
In 2007, Google combined the Google Docs business suite with Gmail and calendar into free and paid products. By offering a paid suite of primary business applications with telephone support priced per user, Google threw its hat squarely into the cloud-based office software arena. For sharing and collaborations, users can also upload local documents to the Google cloud.
When introduced, a free Standard Edition was available. Although discontinued in 2012, existing accounts were not terminated. Google Workspace has had several names. It was originally the Premier Edition of Google Apps, later renamed Google Apps for Business, Google Apps for Work and G Suite. In 2020, G Suite was renamed Google Workspace.
G Suite for Education
G Suite and G Suite Enterprise for Education offer special prices for educators. For the time being, they retain the G Suite brand. See Google
