On October 6, 2020, we introduced a new brand, product experience, and set of offerings to better equip our customers for the future of work. As part of these changes, G Suite is now Google Workspace. Whether you’re at home, at work, or in the classroom, Google Workspace is the best way to create, communicate, and collaborate.
The new name and logo will appear in the Google Admin console, online help, and email notifications.
For background about the change, see the blog post.
