Google Apps Changes – Round 2

Google Apps has changed We transitioned your account to our new infrastructure for Google Apps on May 31, 2011 to make more Google services available to your organization. Here’s what this means for you: In addition to the core suite of messaging and collaboration applications, your users may now access many more Google services. You will retain control over which Google services your users can access. This update is free, and Google automatically made the transition for you on May 31, 2011. By default, we have turned services outside of Google’s core suite of messaging and collaboration applications ON. You can manage your on/off controls in the Organization & users tab. Agree to the following before signing into control panel I have read and I understand the transition. I understand that these additional services are only covered by self-service online support, that they may not be SAS 70 compliant, and that the Google Apps uptime SLA does not apply. By checking this box I agree to Additional Terms for services made available with the new accounts infrastructure. Learn about the users we transitioned in your organization that have conflicting accounts.

Google Apps Changes – First Round

Important changes to your account Your [email protected] account now works more like a full Google Account. Your account is compatible with nearly all Google products, but your yoursite.com administrator may decide which products are enabled for your account. For tips about using your account after this transition, visit our Help Center. Google has made its services available to organizations using Google Apps. In addition to the core suite of messaging and collaboration applications, you may access many Google services (“Additional Services”) using your [email protected] account. Your yoursite.com administrator determines which Additional Services you may access using your account. For tips about using your new account, visit the Google Help Center. Please be aware that when you use Google services, your domain administrator will have access to your [email protected] account information, including your email. You can learn more here, or by consulting your domain administrator’s privacy policy, if one exists. You can choose to maintain a separate account for your personal use of any Google services, including email. If you have multiple Google accounts, the username that appears at the upper right corner of most Google services will help you ensure that you’re using the intended account. The Additional Services are provided by Google to you under these terms of service and privacy policy. Certain Additional Services may also have service-specific terms.

Google Apps No Longer Free

On Friday, Dec 7th, 2012 at 8:53 PM I received an e-mail from Google announcing they will no longer be allowing free signups for Google Apps. Google Apps initially offered a “free tier” that allowed up to 50 users free per organization / domain. Then Google reduced that number to 10. Now there is no free tier. Here is the message from Google: Hello from Google, Here’s some important news about Google Apps—but don’t worry, there’s no need for you to take any action. We just want you to know that we’re making a change to the packages we offer. Starting today, we’re no longer accepting new sign-ups for the free version of Google Apps (the version you’re currently using). Because you’re already a customer, this change has no impact on your service, and you can continue to use Google Apps for free. Should you ever want to upgrade to Google Apps for Business, you’ll enjoy benefits such as 24/7 customer support, a 25 GB inbox, business controls, our 99.9% uptime guarantee, unlimited users and more for just $5 per user, per month. You can learn more about this change in our Help Center or on the Enterprise Blog. Thank you for using Google Apps. Clay Bavor Director, Google Apps
