Google has become known in recent years to change the names of its services from time to time. Today, the American company decided to do so again. In fact, today Google announced that it has decided to change the name of the Google G Suite platform to Google Workspace.
The matter is limited to changing the name only, not the functions and services, but the icons of all services that are part of Google G Suite or rather Google Workspace have been redesigned, including Gmail, whose icon got the largest change ever, while Google in the new logo removed The circumstance, it decided to retain the letter M, but it is no longer completely red, but rather includes all the usual Google colors.
The same applies to other icons as well, which all contain Google colors, whether we are talking about Google Calendar, Google Drive, Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides, Google Meet, or other Google services.
The new brand is boosting compatibility between services now, and there is also a new, integrated user experience to go along with it.
Once on the new Google Workspace platform, you will be able to create a document, collaborate on it with guests in the chat room, share content, work together with other people outside your company, and much more, all in one place. Chat, email, voice and video calls, as well as content management and collaboration are part of the Google Workspace platform.
In Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google Slides, you can now preview a linked file without having to open a new tab, and when you reference @mention to someone in the document, a smart window will display that person’s details, provide context, and suggest actions such as adding them to contacts. Or communicate via chat, email, or video.
Picture-in-picture video chats on Google Meet will make their way to Google Docs, Google Sheets and Google Slides, following their release in Gmail and Chat.
