As 9to5Google reported, all free GSuite users will be automatically upgraded to a premium plan from May 1. Plans start at $6 /user/month with Business Starter and go up to $18 /user/month. Google will suspend your automatic Workspace subscription/accounts if you do not enter billing details before July 1, 2022.
For bloggers or small-time website owners, Google Gsuite’s free offering was the best choice, they can receive and send mail for zero cost. But now, the free option is no longer available, you have to find other alternative services or choose a Gsuite plan.
