Google officially removed the “beta” label from its set of applications – GMail, Google Talk, Google Docs, etc. According to
the Google Blog, they’ve realized that the beta tag doesn’t fit large companies that run their Apps Suite.
In information technology, the term beta refers to a software released to users for testing before its official release for the purpose of evaluation. The software would contain all the features but may be buggy.
GMail, one of the Google Apps service, had the beta label for more than five years even though it was widely used and became an enterprise solution to eMails.
Google however assured that it would continue to innovate and improve Google Apps with or without the beta.
