Google Sued for Nixing Free Workspace Software to Early Adopters

Alphabet Inc.’s Google was sued by an early adopter of its Workplace cloud productivity software who claims the company reneged on a promise to provide it with free access to the program for life.

Google Workplace, formerly known as Google Apps and G Suite, provides a host of services including Gmail, Calendar, Drive for storage and Google Docs for content creation. Some of the programs are free to all, but enterprise features such as custom email addresses and shared Drive storage cost extra.
