M365 Changelog: Migrate content from Google Workspace to Microsoft 365

MC252941 – In public preview, this new feature release will enable admins to take advantage of Microsoft’s expanded support for third-party cloud providers and migrate content from Google Workspace to Microsoft 365.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 82014

When this will happen

Public preview: Microsoft will begin rolling this out in late April and expect to complete rollout mid-May.

Microsoft will communicate via a new Message center post before this feature becomes generally available in late July 2021.

How this will affect your organization

This release will enable you to migrate your Google documents, data, and users to OneDrive, SharePoint, and Teams in Microsoft 365 and collaborate all in one place.

As you connect to a Google enterprise account, the service begins discovering drives and their files. The service will automatically map to an individual’s OneDrive accounts, but you can also manually map to a specific OneDrive user account, SharePoint site, or a Teams channel.

If you want to migrate your content from Google into Microsoft 365, you can use this tool to copy your content from Google Workspace to Microsoft 365.


Scan discovery: View the files and folder quantity, assessment, before moving to the Migrate tab where you’ll see the source and progress.


What you need to do to prepare

Sign-in to the SharePoint admin center, select Migration from the left pane and then select Google. You will be walked through the steps and be prompted for the pertinent information needed to start your migration.

Note: To access, you must be a global admin or OneDrive/SharePoint admin to the Microsoft 365 tenant where you want to migrate your content.

This preview is currently supporting small to medium Google accounts. For the large Google accounts, some of the features may not function as expected. You can use Mover.io if the size of this Google account exceeds the limit supported by this preview release.Additional information
