In a blog post, Google today announced that its renaming Google Apps for Work. It will now just be called G Suite.
In case you are wondering, G Suite is Google’s paid collection of apps, meant for business use and educational use, including Gmail, Docs, Drive, Calendar, Hangouts, etc which most us use everyday.
Google says the new name better reflects its mission to “help people everywhere work and innovate together, so businesses can move faster and go bigger.”
Not just the name, new features are also coming to G Suite including the recently announced intelligent tools.
- These tools include Smart Storage, which lets you sift through Google drive in a flash using the Quick Access option. This tool uses machine learning to predict what files you will need when you open the app.
- Similarly, Smart Scheduling lets you quickly schedule meetings at times where your invites are most likely to be free using some seriously advanced machine learning.
Additionally, Google’s cloud services will now fall under a new ‘Google Cloud‘ brand, including the G Suite, Google Cloud Platform, new machine learning tools and APIs, and all of Google’s Android phones tablets and other devices that access the cloud.
