Google has announced that it's made its online productivity suite available to more people than ever. Workspace is no longer restricted to enterprise users. As long as you enable Google Chat in Gmail, you'll gain access to previously enterprise exclusive Workspace features.

Announced via an official Google blog post, this greatly expanded access to all of Google Workspace includes smart suggestions in Google Docs and Gmail, @ mentioning collaborators across all Google online productivity tools, and sharing documents and presentations from across Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google Slides within Google Meet.

In addition to opening up access to Workspace, the company also shared its plans for the future regarding further improvements. "Over the summer," it will be implementing a brand new user interface in Google Chat, changing its Rooms into more Slack like Spaces. It is additionally offering a paid "Google Workspace Individual" subscription plan that includes "smart booking services, professional video meetings, personalized email marketing," and more features that are currently in development.
