Google Groups

Google Groups makes it easy for groups of people—such as project teams, departments, or classmates—to communicate and collaborate. You can send an email to everyone in a group with one address, invite a group to an event, or share documents with a group.

Google Groups is one of the core services in Google Apps for Education.

Getting started

Want a group for your department or organization? Contact us to request a new group.

There are four types of groups for different purposes:

  • Email list
    Email list groups are mailing lists. Create a new email address so anyone in your organization can send messages to everyone in your group at once.
  • Web forum
    Create a Group on a particular subject that anyone in your organization can join.
  • Q&A forum
    Product experts and savvy customers can help answer common questions about your product and mark the best answers to the web. Responses are archived as a knowledge base for other customers.
  • Collaborative inbox
    Members of a group can receive and respond to email requests using a common address, such as support@your_company.com. Assign incoming messages to group members, track status, categorize posts so they’re easy to find later, and more.
