Last month, Google has announced that GSuite Legacy Free edition will no longer be available by May 1, 2022 and a subscription to a paid Google Workspace subscription is needed for transition and to be able to continue using the services.

This move has surprised a lot of GSuite Legacy users that have been using the platform for their business for quite some time. There’s the option to subscribe to a Google Workspace account or to migrate over to another platform.

Looks like Microsoft seizes the opportunity and jumps in to offer a 60% discount to Legacy users looking to switch to another platform.

In their release, Jared Spataro, the Corporate Vice President for Microsoft 365 said:

“If you’re a small business that’s relied on G Suite legacy free edition, we couldn’t help but notice you might be in the market for a new solution. We’ve got news for you: today, you can get a 60 percent discount on a 12-month Microsoft 365 Business Basic, Business Standard, or Business Premium subscription, along with the help you need to make the move.”

The Microsoft 365 offer includes Microsoft Teams access, OneDrive cloud storage, support for custom domains, and access to a suite of Microsoft Office apps.

Aside from those, it also includes a one year free support with Business Assist for Microsoft 365 to help those who will transition to the new platform. Take note though that Business Assist is only available to US customers and only supports the English language.

This special offer is available to current GSuite Legacy Free Edition users who purchase a 12 month Microsoft 365 subscription by August 2, 2022.

Looking at switching to another platform instead of signing up for a Google Workspace subscription? This could be a good deal for you.
