Normally, a $1 - $2 price hike shouldn’t be considered a big deal, but what makes it one is the fact that this is the first time Google has increased the price of G Suite subscriptions. In its defense, Google claimed that that it has added a number of new features and services to the platform such as video conferencing with Hangouts Meet, team messaging with Hangouts Chat, in addition to increased storage allocations and other security and productivity tools and services since the launch of G Suite’s first paid service back in 2006.

Well, to be honest, Google does have a valid point. It should also be noted that G Suite is now a big deal for Google. The fact that there are over 4 million businesses on G Suite now perfectly backs this claim. While some of these businesses are subscribed to the enterprise plans with a price point discussed privately by their teams, most of them are definitely on the usual monthly or annual plans.
