Changes to Google Apps Offerings


Recent changes in the Google for Education licensing agreement means changes for WMApps.

Full Description

Note: Google email (Gmail) and calendar are not included in new accounts. As W&M faculty and staff already have email in Microsoft Office 365, the newly-created Google Workspace apps are linked to the accounts instead.  Existing Gmail-enabled accounts will not change at this time.

Recent changes in Google's Education Licensing Agreement re-categorized some Google Apps as Additional Services which fall outside of the protections offered by Google for Education. 

As a result...

Here's a list of what's staying and what's going in Google Workspace:

Staying in Google Workspace (No Changes)

The following apps are included under the Google for Education licensing agreement (listed as Core Services in the agreement.)

  • Calendar 
  • Classroom 
  • Docs
  • Drive  
  • Gmail 
  • Google Chrome Sync 
  • Google Hangouts 
  • Google Vault 
  • Groups for Business 
  • Hangouts Chat 
  • Jamboard Service 
  • Keep  
  • Sites 
  • Tasks 
Staying in Google Workspace (With Changes in Terms of Service)

The following apps are no longer protected through the Google for Education licensing agreement (listed as Additional Services in the licensing agreement). 

They now fall under Google's Terms of Service, unless specified otherwise.  Please be aware of this change.
