Yesterday, Google rebranded Gsuite to Workspace.
1. Each of Google's products, Gmail, Docs, Sheets & Calendar get new logos.
2. There's redesign across these products to make them more integrated e.g. creating a doc from your chat window in Gmail.
3. Finally, there are some new features which are more like finishing touches to their existing products e.g. user tagging on Google docs or previewing another document inside of a doc.
Clearly, Google is competing with the likes of Microsoft Teams/ Office 365 to provide a more holistic experience to its business users. This is in line with the rise in remote working and predicting large shift towards virtual work/ collaboration. The rebranding also makes sense since 'Workspace' aligns more with virtual collaboration than 'Suite'.
But that's all to it for now. There's no ground-breaking features or significant upgrades to any of its existing products. Neither anything specific to remote working like Microsoft's Virtual Commute feature launched last week.
