But what does this mean for the average consumer?
Here’s what you need to know.

There’s really not a lot of difference. Google says that “G Suite just got better” and Workspace is “Everything you need to get anything done, now in one place.”
In other words, Workspace offers the same features as G Suite (Gmail, Docs, Sheets, Drive, Calendar, Meet etc), but with better integration, so you don’t have to jump between the different apps. If you are familiar with G Suite, Workspace won’t produce any major surprises.

All the Workspace apps have free versions available, and although there are some limitations, they won’t bother most consumers. Businesses will need to upgrade to the paid version. At the time of writing, Google Workspace plans start at $8.40 AUD per user per month and include a custom business email address (email@example.com), video meetings, 30 GB cloud storage, security controls and support.
