Google to free G Suite users: Pay up or lose your account

Welp. 😶 I did some looking up and found that Apple has a similar service (Custom Email Domain) that I can just use since I’m already paying for a iCloud+ subscription.


  • From the article: “Starting May 1, Google will try to automatically “upgrade” users to a paid account if it has available billing information.”
  • People in the comments are saying that they did not get an email from Google about this (and neither did I).


(I don’t have any sort of billing associated with my Google Workspace account, but I wonder how many G Workspace folks are going to find out on July 1, that they were automatically subscribed to Google Workspace’s paid tier.)
