Google’s business suite, formerly known as G Suite, has been rebranded and renamed Google Workspace. It is aimed at boosting online productivity and collaboration of businesses and employees. It includes different sets of tools such as Meet, Docs, Drive and Gmail to create a virtual workspace.

Since we are always looking for better ways to communicate, here are three Google Workspace tips.

  1. Snooze an email: If you are too busy to respond to emails, snooze it to respond to them later. You can temporarily remove the email from the inbox or postpone it completely until you need it. It will appear on top of your inbox when you need it. You’ll find the snooze icon (look for a little clock) at the end of an email’s line when you point to it in your inbox.
  2. Multiple signatures: Create different signature blocks and easily switch between them. To create one or multiple, go to Settings (gear icon) > Settings > General > Signature > Create New – create as many as you need. To use or switch between them, open the signature menu in the compose action toolbar.
  3. Video, voice and chat: With Google Meet, you can have conversations and conduct meetings via video instead of email. Google Meet offers video and chat functionalities. Google Chat, previously called Google Hangouts Chat, is Google’s paid team chat service, provided as part of Google Workspace.
