Learn how G Suite differs from the standard Gmail or Google account. Both services access the same apps, but they are separate accounts. G Suite is a subscription service, designed primarily for enterprise-level users.
- [Instructor] In this course, I refer to Google's online productivity tools as G Suite, but G Suite itself is a subscription service. So, what are the online apps called? You might hear these online tools referred to as Google Docs. This term is popular, but Google Docs is one application out of an entire suite. It's the word processor and possibly the most popular application. Everyone who has a Google or Gmail account has access to the entire suite of online productivity tools, to Google Drive cloud storage, and to other features.
G Suite is a subscription based service, designed primarily for enterprise level users. It accesses the same online applications you get free with a Google account, but it offers a few bonus features. If you have a domain, G Suite lets you access e-mail at that domain, so you can collaborate using your own domain's e-mail instead of Gmail. G Suite also provides tools for managing users. Finally, remember that any G Suite accounts you have are separate from your regular Google Gmail account.
You can share documents between the two accounts, but they are separate accounts. Beyond these differences, everything in this course applies whether you subscribe to the G Suite service or not.
