    Google Group Members

    Google Group members consist of individuals who have joined a particular Google Group, which is a type of service that facilitates creating and joining email lists and discussion groups. This service is used for a variety of purposes including work, school, and personal interests. Members of Google Groups can engage in discussions, share information, and organize events or meetings through the platform.

    Administrators of Google Groups have the ability to manage members within their groups. They can view the list of all members, including banned users, through the Admin console or directly in Google Groups. The visibility of group members is subject to the group's access and visibility settings determined by the administrator. Additionally, administrators have the capability to view group members in associated services such as Gmail and calendar invitations, thus integrating group management across multiple Google services.
