Google is raising the price on its set of office productivity tools by 20 percent.
The company on Tuesday announced the first price increases for two flavors of G Suite, its set of apps that resemble Google Docs and Sheets but are tailored for the office. G Suite Basic Edition is going from $5 per user per month to $6, while G Suite Business Edition will go from $10 per user per month to $12.
It’s the first time Google has raised the prices on the two suites. Google said the price of its G Suite Enterprise Edition, which includes lots of enterprise-level administration and management tools, will remain at $25 per month per user.
Productivity packages like G Suite and Microsoft’s competitor, 365, generally contain a certain set of applications that nearly every small business needs, such as email, a calendar, word processing and spreadsheets. Others may include a presentation manager, a database or a forms manager.
More than 4 million paying businesses use G Suite, Google has said.
