Google wears his Workspace Individual subscription plan for Europe, just over a year after first introducing the service to other markets.
Workspace is Google’s productivity and collaboration software suite formerly known as G Suite, comprising Gmail, Meet, Drive, Docs, Tasks, Forms, among other key applications. While many of these apps are available individually for free, Google monetizes the products by charging businesses for access to additional features and integrations.
With Google Workspace Individual, the Internet giant is targeting “individual business owners,” specifically, who pay a monthly fee to access premium video calling tools such as recording, noise reduction, and longer group calls. They can also broadcast live from Google Meet to YouTube and use “multicasting” for email newsletters and other marketing campaigns. Google recently announced a handful of new upcoming features too, including electronic signatures saved directly to Google Docs.
Until now, Google Workspace Individual was only available in the US, Canada, Mexico, Japan, Australia and Brazil, but in the future it will be open to users in the UK for £7.99 per month, as well as in France, Spain, Germany and Italy for €7.99 per month.
