Welcome to the Google Apps Blog

March 31, 2009

Like businesses and schools, individuals are beginning think about Google Apps as a collection of web-powered tools that includes Gmail, Docs, Calendar, Talk and Sites. Here within Google, we also think about them as a family of related products, and we're focused on delivering a more seamless, integrated Google Apps experience.

Breaking down the walls between apps makes them easier to use and more powerful. You may have already spotted some of these integrations, like how you can chat in Gmail, how you can embed docs and calendars in Google Sites, and how you can send messages to event attendees within Google Calendar. There's much more in the works, and we're excited to share more here when the time is right.

We also think technology for employees and students should be as useful as what you have at home, so we're organizing our efforts to bring Google Apps innovations to businesses and schools faster. It's been exciting to have already helped more than a million businesses and thousands of schools work more efficiently and save money at the same time, but we think this is really just the beginning of a sweeping movement.

In the spirit of a more seamless Google Apps experience and our intents to bring these innovations to businesses and schools, we're pleased to introduce this Google Apps Blog. Here you can read posts republished from the individual product team blogs, posts about Google Apps in the business and education context, plus original content about Google Apps that you won't find elsewhere.
