Is Google Workspace the Solution to Your Management Woes

Google Workspace is a productivity app that allows for easy collaboration between several different people. Google has been pushing for this type of productivity since the launch of their product, but this is the first time that they have made it possible to collaborate with other people on your desktop without needing to be online at the same time. With Google Workspace, you can tie together all of your productivity apps and get work done either from home or while travelling. This blog post will explore everything you need to know about Google Workspace!

Google Workspace, formerly GoogleSuite, is productivity software that lets you work with several people at once, which makes it easier to get things done. Google has been pushing for this type of productivity since the launch of their product, but this is the first time they have made it possible to collaborate with other people on your desktop without needing to be online at the same time.

Google Suite was recently rebranded as “Workspace”, a productivity app that allows users collaborates in real-time with others on various documents whether on mobile devices or desktops. You no longer need an internet connection to use Google productivity apps. Simply sign into your account, and you can access all of the productivity tools that come with Google Suite from any device or platform. You can also tie together productivity apps like Gmail, Docs & Sheets as well as other third-party applications.

What’s new with Google Workspace?

In return for a monthly subscription fee, Google made a three-step promise for Google Workspace. The ability to collaborate across apps and teams is what distinguishes it from GSuite. Workspace decrease the number of tasks you have to endure. It also helps you accomplish more with your coworkers by limiting the amount of things you have to handle.

A new Google Workspace is Google’s attempt at simplifying productivity and collaboration. Google claims that it can do things like allow users to perform non-Google tasks while Google Docs is open, or let you schedule a video meeting with your coworkers without needing them on the same device as you. Google has also added better tools for file management and sharing in Google Drive, which they say will make finding files easier across teams. Google also began offering Google+ Communities at the same time as Google Workspace, which may be a way for Google to try and make Google Drive more social. Google also improved Google Calendar, Google Keep and Google Hangouts for Google Workspace.

Google recently announced a new feature called “Suggested Sharing”. This will allow you to share documents with other users who might need them, even if they do not have a Google account. It works by simply clicking the + button next your colleague’s name in Docs or Sheets. When sharing files using Suggested Sharing, anyone who has been given access can make changes directly from within the shared document without having to sign in again until they save their work or leave the doc/sheet. You can set up whether co-workers editable rights when sending an invitation via email too – either allowing people full editing privileges right away or restricting this privilege until recipients agree to Google’s Terms of Service.

Features of Google Workspace on Daily Basis


  • Gmail

Google Workspace lets users collaborate across Google apps, including Gmail. Users can enter a Google Workspace session from any device or platform and pick up where they left off in their email inbox by automatically logging them back into the account they were working with previously.

  • Google Docs

A new feature called Suggested Sharing will allow users to share documents with other people who might need access even if they do not have a Google Account, eliminating the hassle of sharing file links via email and saving time for both parties involved in this process. This feature allows you to have multiple people editing the same Google document simultaneously, which is a huge time-saving bonus for Google users.

  • Google Sheets

In addition to real-time co-authoring in Google Docs, this update includes it in Google Sheets too so that data tables will also be open and editable by multiple workers across different platforms. The big difference with Google sheets compared to other Office suites – such as Microsoft Excel however, is how easy it makes collaboration between coworkers on these documents since everything happens online through its cloud storage system instead of having individual accounts per user like most office software requires nowadays when sharing files back and forth via email attachments. Google Sheets is Google’s answer to Microsoft Excel.

  • Google Hangouts

Users can schedule meetings on the fly without needing their coworkers or clients to be signed into Gmail at that time too – a feature that’s been around since last year but now works even better with Suggested Sharing.

  • Google Calendar

Google has improved the calendar tool so that users will be able share their calendars more easily with each other as well as request time off work seamlessly through this platform instead of having to use email or phone calls like most office software requires nowadays when trying to schedule meetings between on different teams; even though we all know Google is far more reliable in this area than anything else.

  • Google Drive

Google Docs, Sheets and Slides are now integrated into Google’s cloud storage service known as Google Drive – making them easier to find when you need them most by putting everything together under one umbrella rather than having different accounts for each type of file that may be shared with other workers on the team.


How Much Does Google Workspace Cost?

Google Workspace is not cheap. It costs $4.20 per user per month for the Business Starter plan, 30GB storage space per user, and offers 100 participant video meetings (without recordings).

For the Business Standard plan it doubles the price to $9.60 per user per month, expands storage to 2TB per user, and provides up to 150 participant video meetings  (recordings are optional).

Premium Business and Enterprise are more expensive, and they come with additional security capabilities. Provides up to 250-participant. Google offers several levels of free versions for schools and non-profits, although organizations with more users should go to the Enterprise plan subscription.



Google Workspace is a versatile tool that can be used to host and distribute email for any type of business. When it comes to email hosting and providing an all-in-one solution for document collaboration and storage, Google Workspace may be a good solution. It’s extremely cheap and simple to use. Most users are likely already familiar with Gmail, which saves time by eliminating the need to learn new tools.

It is also one of the more cost-effective software. Even if you have to pay extra, Google Workspace provides unlimited storage without restriction, giving it a significant edge over similarly priced Microsoft Office plans.

I believe Google Workspace is a viable alternative to comparable products, and it might be a good fit if your team is small to medium in size. If you want to try it out free for 14 days, click here.
