Face to face in the news:
2016 - Google launched App Maker for G Suite to defeate Zoho Mail
2015 - Inbox Insight - new search engine for Zoho Mail. G Suite keeps calm
Zoho unveiled Inbox Insight - a search-based email app for iOS and Android that is intended to ensure that emails that truly matter don't get buried, and important tasks don't slip through the cracks. Inbox Insight complements the traditional Zoho Mail mobile app, which users may still use to create and send emails and to browse through inboxes and folders. Instead, Inbox Insight is really a smart search box that sits atop your email. You can use it for example to find a message from about 3 months ago by searching From Charles, From January 1st to April 1st. Any search you make can be saved, so the next time you receive an email that matches that search, you will be notified about it. It’s a great way to block out all the noise and be notified only about the emails that matter to you.
2011 - Google will examine Google Apps professionals online to compete with Zoho Mail
Google announced the Google Apps Certification Program today. What is the certification value? It is recommended that a candidate have a minimum of 3-6 years of professional IT experience, and complete at least 3 Google Apps for Business deployments, have an experience with the use of Google Apps Directory Sync and server side migration tools.

In addition to online tests, video and web conferencing tools, this service also provides trained proctors, that detect any unusual behavior from test takers: all unusual eye movements, removing oneself from the field of vision and making atypical noises are all noted and a behavior alert is sent to the test taker. To participate in the exam a candidate need to buy a special webcam recommended Kryterion. The exam costs $100 and is currently available only in English. Other languages will appear later.
