    About the name change from Google Apps to G Suite

    We created Google Apps to help people everywhere work and innovate together, so organizations can move faster and achieve more. On September 29, 2016, we introduced a new name that better reflects this mission: G Suite.

    The new name and logo will appear in the Google Admin console, online help, and email notifications. G Suite is still the same all-in-one solution that you use every day, with the same powerful tools like Gmail, Docs, Drive, and Calendar. Your services and pricing remain the same. 

    For background about the change, see the blog post.

    Also, Google for Work is now Google Cloud. See more in the blog post

    Some G Suite Marketplace apps and Chrome extensions refer to “Google Apps” 

    The names of the apps and extensions may have the old “Google Apps” name during the transition, but they’ll continue to work with G Suite as usual.

    Where can we get a copy of the new G Suite logos?

    If you’d like to update your organization’s support content or communications, you can download copies of the G Suite logo.
