Turn access to Gemini for Google Workspace Alpha on or off

As a Google Workspace administrator, you can let your users try Gemini Alpha features before they're released to customers as part of Gemini for Google Workspace.

Important notes about Gemini for Google Workspace

  • The Alpha setting is available only to organizations that are already using Gemini for Google Workspace.
  • Gemini Alpha is turned off by default. Only an admin can turn it on.
  • You can turn on Gemini Alpha features for all of your Gemini for Google Workspace users or for a subset of Gemini users within specific organizational units or groups.
  • Alpha features get the same robust data protection standards that come with all Google Workspace services.

Periodically, Google adds or removes Gemini Alpha features, and this page is updated for the current, supported Alpha features.

What terms apply to Alpha features?

By enabling Alpha features in Gemini for Google Workspace, you agree that the Pre-General Availability Offering Terms (excluding Section 6.1(b)), and Generative AI Services sections of the Google Workspace Service Specific Terms apply to your organization's use of the Alpha features. For clarity, Google's data protection and processing obligations with respect to Customer Data set forth in the Cloud Data Processing Addendum will apply to the Alpha features.
