Switch Google Workspace​​​ subscriptions

Google Workspace offers a variety of editions to meet your needs. The edition you switch to determines the features available to you and to the users in your organization.

Tip: Not sure which edition you have? You can view your current subscription and payment plan on the Billingand thenManage subscriptions page in the Google Admin console. For details, go to Which edition & payment plan do I have?

Before you begin

If you switch your subscription, your account will be treated as a newly created account only in regard to time-dependent features. For example, say a feature in Google Chat was off by default for accounts created before a certain date and on for accounts created after a certain date. Your old account was created before the date so you’re used to having the feature off. Then, you switch accounts and because it’s after the date, the feature is now on by default. You can track new feature releases by product. For details, go to What’s new in Google Workspace.
