Google app suite is all-encompassing

All through 2021, we noticed a number of Google-branded companies line up and take their place underneath certainly one of two massive umbrella classes — Google One or Google Workspace. Google presents the previous as its paid resolution for customers who need entry to extra Google Drive cloud storage (plus unique in-app options, like extra modifying instruments for Pictures), whereas the latter is for professionals and companies of all sizes. Google Preserve has been a part of Workspace for years now, and now its Android app is lastly beginning to promote as a lot.


The parents over at 9to5Google noticed that updating the Google Preserve app to model 5.22.362.00 provides a Google Workspace emblem to the splash display displayed when opening the app. We have confirmed seeing the identical habits on this launch, which was not current beforehand. Comparable Workspace branding already seems on apps like Docs, Slides, Drive, and Sheets.

Google’s ongoing Meet merger with Google Duo is getting slightly complicated, however that is a great instance of an try and shift a service for people (Duo) underneath the enterprise-centric Workspace umbrella. With Preserve updating its splash display to proclaim its Workspace affiliation, just a few holdout apps stay, like Google Calendar, Duties, and Chat.

Fortunately, this refresh appears to only be about making that Workspace branding good and distinguished, and we’re not seeing any adverse penalties — Google is not paywalling any options right here to make them enterprise-exclusives. We do not wish to give the corporate concepts, although.
