Customers can now keep the legacy free version of G Suite for personal use.

Google decided to allow users of the outdated free version of G Suite to continue using the service without switching to Google Workspace if they use it for personal purposes. Thurrott was the first to announce Google’s decision to pull out.

While business users can try to bypass the update by opting out, Google warns that it doesn’t offer support. The firm also plans to remove some business features. It’s also worth noting that Google will attempt to transfer you to Google Workspace if it suspects that you’re using your account for commercial purposes.

Personal users who migrated to Google Workspace after January 19, 2022 may remain on the legacy free version of G Suite by contacting Google Support . This is useful for those who thought they had no choice but to upgrade, but now there is no need to do so and they can continue to use the legacy service.

Your account will be locked out on August 1, 2022 if you don’t take any action. You can use Google Workspace or the legacy free version of G Suite for non-commercial purposes if you reactivate your account. For businesses, this service will be unavailable starting June 27, 2022, but you won’t have to pay for a Google Workspace subscription until August 1, 2022.
