Remove a Google Apps service

If you don't want anyone in your organization to use a particular Google Apps service, remove it from your account. You can remove any core service such as Gmail, Chat, Hangouts, and so on, as well as services you added from the Google Apps Marketplace.

When you remove a service, none of your users can access it. However, you can add the service back later and they won't lose any existing data. If you remove Google Drive, for example, users lose access to their online documents. But if you add Drive back again their documents are restored.

To remove a Google Apps service:

  1. Sign in to the Google Admin console
  2. From the dashboard, click Apps then choose the type of service you want to remove (Google Apps or Marketplace apps).
  3. Select the service you want to remove to view the settings page.
  4. Click the Uninstall link to uninstall the service. This option appears near the bottom of the page, and may appear on a separate sub-page for your service, such as Advanced Settings.

    The service is removed from your list of Google Apps or Marketplace apps in the Admin console.

Want to remove a service only for some users? Don't remove the service as described here. Just turn it Off for select organizational units. For details, see Turn services On or Off.
