Turn on or off additional Google services

This article is for Google Workspace administrators. Need help with your personal account? Go to Google Account Help.

As your organization's administrator, when you sign up for Google Workspace, your team has access to several additional services, such as YouTube, Blogger, Google Analytics, and more. You can manage how these services are used with Google Workspace accounts with the On or Off controls. The table below describes the features of each service at a high level, and more detail about the services and impact of the On and Off controls are available in the applicable terms and Help Center documentation. You can turn these services on or off for users by accessing Additional Google services in your Google Admin console.

Some services have an individual On or Off control in the Admin console and others don't. For services that don't have this control, you can turn them on or off all at once.

Note: Administrators for Google Workspace Essentials (email-verified) customers do not have access to these controls. To control Additional Google services, first verify your domain. For details, see Verify your domain to unlock features (for email-verified accounts).
