Backing up data in Google Workspace is very important for businesses…
Last year, Google introduced Spacesa dedicated place for organizing people, topics, and projects in Google Workspace. Since launching Spaces, many customers have told us that they appreciate the tight integration with Google Workspace products, including Gmail, Calendar, Drive, and Meet, and the seamless collaboration experience.
With Spaces now available, starting in 2023 we are planning to wind down Google Currentsand bring remaining content and communities over to the new Spaces experience. Before we do this, we’ll deliver new capabilities in Spaces to help you communicate and collaborate more effectively. These include support for larger communities and leadership communication, investments in advanced search, tools for content moderation, and more. We’re also investing in search and discoverability, platform capabilities for app development, and enterprise-grade security and compliance, including data protection, Data Loss Prevention (DLP) and support Vault.
If your organization is using Currents, we’ll share a timeline for opting in to data migration and other milestones in the coming months, as well as guidance to assist with the transition. Spaces are available to all Google Workspace customers today.

Why it’s important
The accelerating transition to combined work has dramatically changed the way people collaborate, and Google Workspace customers are using Currents and Spaces to communicate about projects, share organizational updates, and build community.
Upgrading Google Currents to Spaces removes a separate, siloed destination for users, and provides organizations with a modern, enterprise-grade experience that reflects how the world is working today. Spaces provide a central place for teams to engage in topic-based discussions, share knowledge and ideas, move projects forward, and build communities and team culture.
In preparation for the migration from Currents to Spaces, we’ll start turning down features with very little usage.
