Google alludes to the existence of ‘experimental Google Workspace apps’

Google’s early years were marked by a spate of experimental apps under the “Google Labs” banner. The company today added a curious setting for enterprise admins to control “experimental Google Workspace apps.”

Admins can use the new Experimental Apps Control setting to grant or deny their users access to emerging or experimental Google applications and whether those applications can access core service data.

This setting in the Google Admin console — Apps > Additional Google services > Settings for Workspace Experiments — addresses the previous inability to toggle experimental Google apps on and off.

With the addition of the Experimental Apps Control, admins can now better control selected services their users can access.

Access is set to “ON by default for existing

customers and OFF by default for Google Workspace for Education primary and secondary schools (K-12).” The change is rolling out now to admins but is not widely available yet. The company today only provided the below icon.
