Bad News: Google kills off free Google Apps

Its very sad that Google is no more providing free Google apps accounts to its users. Not every user use Google Apps from business point of view. Many use it just for family, friends group, some college group etc. They are not using it for any business. Now normal user will have to use those ugly and lengthy email id's which are even hard to remember.

Now Google Apps free account holders are receiving emails like this:

Google Apps customer notice

Hello from Google,

Here's some important news about Google Apps—but don't worry, there's no need for you to take any action. We just want you to know that we're making a change to the packages we offer.

Starting today, we're no longer accepting new sign-ups for the free version of Google Apps (the version you're currently using). Because you're already a customer, this change has no impact on your service, and you can continue to use Google Apps for free.

Should you ever want to upgrade to Google Apps for Business, you'll enjoy benefits such as 24/7 customer support, a 25 GB inbox, business controls, our 99.9% uptime guarantee, unlimited users and more for just $5 per user, per month.

You can learn more about this change in our Help Center or on the Enterprise Blog.

Thank you for using Google Apps.
