"Websites + Marketing users can access Over’s library of fonts, graphics, stock imagery and videos, and templates from their dashboard, and then easily make designs pop using tools like blending, layering and masking – no experience necessary".

GoDaddy Australia Senior Marketing Director, Suzanne Mitchell said: "Websites + Marketing was built to make it easy for entrepreneurs and small business owners in Australia to show up everywhere that matters, from Amazon to Google to Facebook.

“Websites + Marketing integration with Over’s powerful design tools means that Australians can create polished content, regardless of their graphic design experience. It is another way for a small business to get noticed online, without requiring a huge investment of time or money for entrepreneurs.”

We're also advised that the new Over features will be available to users of all Websites + Marketing tiers.

As for Over, which is "a beloved app that was recognised by Apple as a 'Best 2019 App Trend of the Year', will "continue to operate as a standalone app" and is available for download on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
