Upgrade to Google Apps for Work
If you're using the legacy Free edition of Google Apps, you can upgrade to Google Apps for Work and try it free for 30 days, for up to 10 users. This free trial period starts from the time you upgrade and lasts for 30 days or until you add more than 10 users (whichever comes first). Before your trial ends, you must either set up billing to keep using Google Apps for Work or downgrade to go back to using the legacy Free version of Google Apps.
Upgrading from the Free edition to Google Apps for Work costs only a few dollars a month per user and gives you the following benefits. See pricing

After upgrading, you have 30 days to either:
- Set up billing for continued business features. You can set up billing at any time without prematurely ending your free trial. You won't be charged until your 30-day trial ends or you add more than 10 users. In fact, we recommend entering your billing information well before the end of your trial to avoid having your service suspended. For details on pricing and payments, see Google Apps Billing basics.
- Downgrade to the Free edition to go back to using Google Apps for free.
You can't downgrade once your paid subscription begins. You can downgrade to the Free edition during your 30-day trial. However, once you set up billing and then either add more than 10 users or let the trial expire, the option to downgrade is no longer available.
For details, see Downgrade to Legacy Free edition.
Everyone in your domain must upgrade. You can't upgrade some users to use business features while others continue using the legacy Free version of Google Apps.
