Google Groups gets an Update

Google Groups is all about helping users connect with people, access information, and communicate effectively over email and on the web. Now there's a new version on the block. We didn't want to say it, but yes, it's new and improved. It's got a new look, and there are a lot of great new features. If you're already a Google Groups user, we think you'll like it. Just sign in – all your groups are already there, just waiting for you. If you haven't tried Google Groups yet, why not search, join or create a group? Or better yet, do all three.

The new features added in this update include:

  • Page Creation: Create and collaborate on shared web pages, hosted within the group itself.
  • Customization: Select pictures, colors and styles to give your group its own distinct look.
  • File sharing: Upload and share your work with others in your group.
  • Member profiles: Learn more about the other members in your group.
Much like Google's other services, Google Groups is free. The site is currently only available in English, but more languages are on the way. Google Groups supports IE6+, Firefox 1.5+ and Safari 2.03. It seems Opera users are left out once again.
