What’s changing

We’re opening a beta program to allow G Suite users to accomplish more on-the-go with the Google Assistant when logged in with a G Suite account. The Google Assistant will respond to voice commands for certain Google Calendar and Gmail functions and:

  • Let you know when your next meeting is
  • Create, cancel or reschedule a Calendar event
  • Send a note to event attendees via email
  • Send an email
  • Dial into a meeting

Admins and end users

Why you’d use it

By using the Google Assistant with your G Suite account, you can easily accomplish work-related tasks while on the go.

How to get started

  • Admins: Apply to be part of the beta program using this form.
  • End users: No action required.

Additional details

To use this functionality in the Google Assistant, you must be logged in to your G Suite account. Additionally, if you have both a personal and a G Suite account, please note that the Assistant can only answer questions for one account at a time. You must switch between those accounts if you’d like to ask a question about your other account.

This beta functionality is only available in English.
