G Suite Legacy Upgrades

27th May 2022

Google have recently updated their timelines for the transition of G Suite Legacy to Google Workspace from June 1, 2022 and you now have until June 27, 2022 to take action.

Along with this change, they have added an offer for those using G Suite legacy free edition for non-commercial use, such as individuals and families, to opt out of the transition. However this will mean anyone using the legacy version for commercial use will need to upgrade to a paid solution.

What do you need to do?

For businesses, the G Suite legacy free edition will no longer be available after June 27, 2022 (updated from June 1, 2022). Google recommends you upgrade now to a Google Workspace subscription that meets your needs. Upgrading from your G Suite legacy free edition to Google Workspace will only take you a few short steps and is not disruptive to your end-users.

When you’ve identified your preferred subscription follow these steps:

  1. Go to your Admin console.
  2. Select your new subscription offering.
  3. Enter your billing information.

If you take no action by June 27, 2022, Google will start upgrading your organisation seamlessly to a new Google Workspace subscription. The new subscription will be based on what you currently use with your G Suite legacy free edition. To complete your upgrade and avoid account suspension, you’ll need to set up Google Workspace billing before August 1, 2022.

In addition to recent innovations like smart canvas, meetings in documents, and dedicated Spaces to help organise people, topics and projects, Google Workspace includes more storage, increased security, 24/7 support, and more. To upgrade from G Suite legacy free edition and avoid account suspension, switch now and enter your billing details in your Admin Console before August 1, 2022. You’ll have limited time discount options to support you in this transition.

If you’re an individual or family using your account for non-commercial purposes, you can continue using the G Suite legacy free edition and opt out of the transition to Workspace in the Google Admin console before June 27, 2022.

In case that you need to reactivate your account, you’ll need to log into the Admin console and enter a valid form of payment.

Qualifying educational institutions and nonprofits have the option to migrate to Google Workspace for Education Fundamentals or Workspace for Nonprofits without service disruption.

Timeline Summary

  1. Before June 27, 2022 Upgrade to a new Google Workspace subscription or opt out of the transition.
  2. Before August 1, 2022 Complete your upgrade by setting your Google Workspace billing.
