Groups such as project teams, departments, or classmates can communicate and collaborate using Google Groups. If you want to invite a group to an event, or share documents with a group, you can send a single email to everyone in the 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.
