Have you been patiently waiting to access the full range of Google services in your Google Apps account? Your wait is finally over! Today Google announced the availability of the same services available to regular Google accounts users for Google Apps.
From the blog post: We’ve steadily added new functionality to Google Apps and recently added support for third-party apps, but we’re thrilled to swing the floodgates of new functionality wide open now. Starting today, customers worldwide can access a full spectrum of services from Google—including more than 60 productivity-boosting applications that extend far beyond any traditional software suite.
Existing customers can transition at their own pace over the next couple months to the new infrastructure supporting these applications from the administrative control panel. New customers will automatically have the new infrastructure.
Here is the video that accompanied the announcement. It does a very nice job of explaining how the rollout can be done by Google Apps administrators (i.e. pick and select desired services, etc.).
