This article is for G Suite administrators. To manage your own groups, visit the Google Groups help.
This service controls whether users can access outside groups from their organization accounts on Google Groups, groups.google.com. Outside groups are any groups outside your organization, including consumer groups. By default, the Groups additional service is ON, but you can turn it OFF if necessary.
ON—Users in your organization can access outside groups from their organization accounts.
OFF—Users in your organization only get to your organization's groups when they're signed in to their organization accounts.
Note: Users can always get to outside groups from accounts outside your organization.
