Google Apps expands for an 'Appier workplace

Google has announced that the full suite of Google services will now be available under its Google Apps banner.

That means that as well as the usual services you might use with your Apps account, like GMail and calendar, you'll also now have access to the likes of Picasa, YouTube and Google Reader, without the bother of multiple log-ins.

In total there will be more than 60 productivity-boosting applications within easy reach from your Apps account.

The Big G has also revised the versions of Google Apps available, offering up four different variations: Google Apps, Google Apps for Business, Google Apps for Government and Google Apps for Education. Canines will have to wait as there is still no sign of Google Apps for Dogs.

"The team has worked hard to unlock all of this new functionality for our customers, and we think many of these new applications will become indispensable within your organisation", said Derek Parham, lead software engineer of the Google Apps team.

The changes are going to go live over the next few months.
