Turn a service on or off for Google Workspace users

As an administrator, you can control who uses which Google services from their account. Just turn the service on or off for those users in your Google Admin console. When the users sign in to their account, they have only the services that are turned on for them. 

Changes can take up to 24 hours but typically happen more quickly. Learn more

Option 1: Control access for organizational units

The easiest way to turn a service on or off for specific users is using organizational units. For example, you want only your Marketing team to use YouTube. Create one organizational unit for Marketing and another for everyone else. Then, leave YouTube turned on for Marketing and turn it off for the others.

Option 2: Customize access using access groups

If you already use organizational units to control other settings for users, you might instead want to control service access using groups. This lets you control access for any group of users no matter what your organizational structure.
