Groups

Google Groups is a feature of Google Apps that makes it easy to communicate and collaborate with groups of people—such as project teams, departments, office locations, and special-interest groups. A group is like a mailing list: It contains the email addresses of its members, but also has its own address. Using just the one email address for the group, you can:

  • Send email to group members
  • Invite group members to meetings
  • Share your content with group members, including Google documents, sites, videos, and calendars
