- Google Workspace individual accounts will be automatically upgraded from 15GB to 1TB of cloud storage.
- Google has also announced advances in email personalization for Workspace users.
- Google Workspace individual subscription is launching in new countries and regions.
Google Workspace individual subscription was announced last year in June for individual small business owners. It offers premium video calling, longer group calls, easy appointment booking through the professional booking page, and more features. Now, Google has announced increased storage capacity and advances in email personalization for all Google Workspace customers. Google Workspace individual subscription will now come with 1TB of secure cloud storage instead of 15GB.
Google Workspace individual accounts will be automatically upgraded from 15GB to 1TB of cloud storage without the need for any action from the end users. Users can also store more than 100 file types on the cloud storage, including PDFs and CAD files. Further, users can edit or collaborate on Microsoft Office files without converting them. Google says that the Drive comes with built-in protections against malware, spam, and ransomware, so if a user accidentally opens a macro-enabled malicious doc file, the files remain protected.
Earlier, Google launched a multi-send mode for Workspace users. It lets users easily send emails to multiple recipients while maintaining privacy. The company added mail merge tags to allow users to personalize multi-send emails such as @firstname and @lastname. With this feature, each individual will receive a personalized email that “feels individually crafted just for them.” Multi-send emails will also include an unsubscribe link by default so that the recipients can opt-out of future messages if they want to do so.
Google Workspace for individuals is launching in new countries and regions, including the Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, the Netherlands, Portugal, Belgium, Finland, Greece, and Argentina. The service is also available in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Japan, Australia, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, the U.K., and Switzerland. Google is providing a free Workspace individual 14-day trial for users.
