Google Says It’s Time For Longtime Small-business Users To Pay Up

By Nico Grant, The New York Times Company When Google told some small businesses in January that they would no longer be able to use a customized email service and other workplace apps for free, it felt like a broken promise for Richard Dalton, a longtime user who operates a scholastic test-prep company in Vancouver, British Columbia. “They’re basically strong-arming us to switch to something paid after they got us hooked on this free service,” said Dalton, who first set up a Google work email for his business, Your Score Booster, in 2008. Google said the longtime users of what it calls its G Suite legacy free edition, which includes email and apps like Docs and Calendar, had to start paying a monthly charge, usually around $6 for each business email address.
