New Google Additional Services within Glow

Google Arts & Culture and Google Translate

Opt in Service

As you may know, Google Workspace is an opt in service so not all Glow users will have a Google account.

Once Local Authorities have opted into Google Workspace, they can also enable Google Additional Services. Google requires consent to be obtained and maintained for all users before they can use Additional Services. If a user is under 18 this has to be parental consent.

Current Additional Services include,

  • Google Earth
  • Google Chrome Store
  • Google Maps
  • YouTube
We are now delighted to share that the Glow Team have added two more Additional Services.
