Google Apps for Work, a productivity suite released in 2007, is a set of intelligent apps including Gmail, Google Docs, Drive, Calendar etc. to connect the people across the globe by Google. A couple months ago, Google presented a revamp for G Suite which was only available to companies that were accepted for an early adopter program. But now, Google has announced a new version of the Google Sites, which would be accessible by all G Suite customers.
A newer version for Google Sites service which is used for creating websites is being launched now in the rapid release track. The new version could be used only if Google Drive and the previous version of Google Sites are both already enabled by the end users. It will become available for end users in the scheduled release track on November 21. This surely doesn’t mean older version would become unavailable as Google mentioned in a blog post. Google will certainly inform an year in advance before killing the previous version. The date is not revealed yet.
In 2017, Google will provide and recommend options to migrate your sites from the classic Sites to the new Sites,Beginning in 2018, we’ll send a timeline and instructions regarding the gradual process to shut down the classic Sites.
The new Google Sites are aimed at being more mobile-friendly and easier for the user. With this tool, you can customize and move around content sections easily. You can also embed external content and insert content from Google Drive and other apps. We can get a clear picture of how a website would look on any device with new Google sites. Further you can limit the viewership your site to your organisation or make it available for the world. Hence, the new Google Sites of G Suite makes it easier to build a website for work.
