Google Groups makes it easy for groups of people—such as project teams, departments, or classmates—to communicate and collaborate. You can send an email to everyone in a group with one address, invite a group to an event, or share documents with a group. You can also create an online forum to discuss a popular technology or answer questions about a product.

Note: This guide covers Google Groups for Business, which includes additional features for G Suite accounts. If you don’t see the features below, contact your G Suite administrator.
