Downgrade to legacy Free edition

If you're using the legacy Free edition of Google Apps and you started a 30-day free trial of Google Apps for Work, you can downgrade back to Free edition, but only during the 30-day free trial. After the trial ends, your paid subscription will begin. As a result, you won't be able to downgrade and will no longer be able to use 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.

Before your 30-day free trial expires:

  1. Sign in to the Google Admin console.
  2. Click Billing.
  3. Next to your subscription, click  and choose Cancel subscription.
  4. Select Downgrade to Google Apps standard.
  5. Click Proceed.

Note: If you don't see the downgrade option, you aren't eligible to downgrade. This could be because you're either not in the 30-day free trial, or you have more than 10 users in your domain.
