Google Apps Benefits

Unlimited Storage

Google Apps users now have unlimited storage of documents, photos, email and files through Google Drive.

Accessible: Anytime, Anywhere

Access your content on Google Drive from anywhere with an internet connection: computers and mobile devices

SBU Branded E-mail

Email addresses follow this format: (common names will have some variation to this).

Offline Access

Enable Offline Access in Chrome or on your device and you can access your content even if you're offline in GmailCalendar and Google Drive.

Simplify Collaboration

Easily share and collaborate on documents, calendars, and websites through Google products and edit files collaboratively in real-time with Google Drive! 

No More Updates

As a web service, Google Apps is automatically updated by Google. You will not have to worry about installing updates yourself. 

Chat Your Way

Use text, voice and video chat with Google Hangouts. Need to share what you're seeing on your screen? Google Hangouts does that, too!

Group Management Tools

Create your own groups to simplify communication and collaboration. Request a Google Group, and then you can add and remove members and manage group settings.
