Would you migrate from G Suite to Office 365? Microsoft thinks so and is developing a tool for it

Microsoft has big plans for Office 365, including migration tool for G Suite users, launch scheduled for Q2 2019
Microsoft has big plans for Office 365
Although Google's G Suite is more than enough for the office-related needs of many companies, Microsoft is working on a tool that would ease their migration to Office 365. If everything goes as planned, this "G Suite migration experience" should become available in the second quarter of 2019.

Microsoft might be playing nice with everyone nowadays — including the Linux community — but this doesn't mean that the Redmond giant is not trying to lure users of various other products to its alternatives. One example is Office 365, which is apparently expected to bring in some users who are currently using the Google G Suite.

Without further ado, this is a fresh addition to the Office 365 roadmap page, an entry simply called "Google G Suite to Office 365 migration" that has been created last week (on November 8) and has been modified earlier today: "We've heard the feedback and we're excited to announce the new G Suite migration experience which will allow you to directly migrate email, calendar and contacts from Google G Suite to Office 365! Our highly secure solution ensures your data is directly migrated to Office 365, with no resting points along the way. We're also adding support for migrating mailbox in batches."

The release date of the aforementioned tool is — at least for now — the second quarter of the next calendar year. However, there is no preview version available yet and Microsoft still has to reveal the launch date of such a version. If you were wondering about the possibilities available right now for migration, you should know that admins can migrate IMAP mailboxes from G Suite (go here to check out the Exchange migration tool) with the help of migration endpoints, but this method cannot handle calendar items and contacts automatically.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
