Guide: This price adjustment was only seen a few months after former Oracle executive Thomas Kurian took the helm of Google Cloud CEO. Google Cloud CEO not only manages the Google Cloud platform, but also manages the work of Google Apps.

Foreign media reported that Google Google raised its basic and commercial versions of its G Suite (such as Gmail and Docs) by 20% for the first time. However, the price of the enterprise version did not rise.

This price adjustment occurred only a few months after former Oracle executive Thomas Kurian took the helm of Google Cloud CEO. Google Cloud CEO not only manages the Google Cloud platform, but also manages the work of Google Apps.

In November 2018, Kurian will officially announce the replacement of Google Cloud CEO Diane Greene, but he will not take over until 2019. Diane Greene was a former VMware founder and CEO.

This price volatility will take effect on April 2, 2019, which will bring Google's product cost closer to the cost of the competitor's Microsoft Office 365 suite, which is the basic version of G Suite. It costs between $5 and $6 a month, and the business plan is set to cost $10 to $12 per user per month.

Although the characteristics of different pricing layers from Google and Microsoft are not directly comparable, they can provide a reference for users. There are differences between the basic and enterprise levels of Google’s product offerings, and involve storage space and other service features.

Google Enterprise Edition pricing will remain unchanged, and Google will continue to provide free accounts for non-commercial users.

Google said in a blog introducing the new pricing that G Suite has grown to provide more products for users over the past decade.

However, "the only thing that G Suite has not changed is the price."

Although Google did not announce its cloud computing market share or business revenue, Google Cloud said in February 2018 that the entire cloud The computing department's quarterly revenue has exceeded $1 billion. Despite this disclosure, it is unclear how much G Suite revenue is compared to Google's cloud platform. Google's public ownershipCloud market share is widely considered to be behind Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure.

In Alphabet's third-quarter revenue, the "Other Income" category posted $4.64 billion, including cloud business and app store revenue, as well as hardware sales. Alphabet will announce its next earnings report on February 4, 2019.

Google said that this price change will not affect the contract or renewal of the user signed before April 2, 2019.
