Back in 2010 Google launched the Google Apps Marketplace to feature third-party software that enhances Google Apps for Work, and today that website is seeing a major update.

Highlights on the newly refreshed homepage include both new and popular apps being featured plus a central search field and a variety of categories along the top navigation bar.

While Google notes that this specific launch reaches both Scheduled and Rapid release users and should be available everywhere over the next few days, it does highlight a few things to consider that will impact users:

If you’ve disabled the installation of some or all third-party Marketplace apps for your employees (in the Admin console under Apps > Marketplace apps > Settings for Marketplace apps), they will not be able to install those applications from the new Marketplace.

End users can only see end-user apps in the Marketplace; admins can see both admin-specific and end-user apps in the Marketplace. If you want to access admin-specific apps, please be sure that you’re signed in with your Apps admin account.

Google Apps for Work users can find the newly overhauled Google Apps Marketplace website at apps.google.com/marketplace.
