Google just made a major service free as it tries to take on Slack, Microsoft Teams

This week Google eliminated the need to pay to access its Google Workspace suite of productivity tools, rolling the web-based tools out to everyone with a Gmail account. It’s a bold move that’s clearly driven by Google’s desire to take on Slack, Zoom and Microsoft Teams in the space for free remote collaboration tools.

That means most of us will soon gain access to a redesigned Gmail that brings with it some extra features aimed at making it easier to share and collaborate with others. It’s a big move for Google, though you might not even notice the change unless you set your Chat preference to “Google Chat” (instead of “Classic Hangouts”) in the Chat and Meet section of your Gmail settings menu.
