Overview of Google services

Your G-Suite account can be used with most of Google services, as mentioned earlier. In education, you may frequently use the following apps.

  • Gmail
  • Google Drive
  • Google Classroom
  • Google Meet
  • Google Forms
  • Google Sites
  • Google Play
  • YouTube

Using a desktop or laptop computer, these services can be accessed through any supported web browser such as Edge, Chrome, Safari, and FireFox. Only Google Drive has a dedicated desktop app (but it is not necessary).

To use these applications on mobile, you will be forced to install the corresponding applications (available on iOS and Android). You are likely to have these apps installed from the factory if you are using Android phones. In some cases the system will ask you to accept and install the "Device Policy," in order to log in with the G-Suite account. This is more likely to happen if it detects that your mobile phone is not secured (e.g., jailbroken, rooted, or no passcode lock).
