I think the same can be achieved by navigating to https://myaccount.google.com/. I suspect it is a one-time flag to push this marketing hoo-ha at users and then it’s back to normal.

After further investigation (which sounds more professional that "I wandered around the floor and nobody else was having this problem but one guy was having it until he rebooted and it went away")...

 

I exited Chrome on my computer, started it up again, and now the old grid (the one that works) has returned.

Seems like everyone is affected. Google's app status dashboard, https://www.google.com/appsstatus#hl=en&v=status  doesn't say anything about this issue. It's not just affecting EDU and business accounts, but personal accounts too.

Morning -

We are a GSuite school? In Chrome, when we click on the grid we get directed to a "Google Assistant". Any ideas? Can we turn this off?
