Google has renamed Google Apps to G Suite:

We created Google Apps to help people everywhere work and innovate together, so organizations can move faster and achieve more. On September 29, 2016, we introduced a new name that better reflects this mission: G Suite.

The new name and logo will appear in the Google Admin console, online help, and email notifications. G Suite is still the same all-in-one solution that you use every day, with the same powerful tools like Gmail, Docs, Drive, and Calendar. Your services and pricing remain the same.

Source About the name change from Google Apps to G Suite

I have created :

G Suite is the new name for Google Apps. It is a suite of products for business clients of Google. Unless these products specifically involve your browser or computer software, questions about Google Suite are considered off-topic and should be asked on webapps....

We should also create a synonym from to .

Edit: Just bumping this. The question anchoring the new tag was migrated. Didn't want the new tag to disappear before the synonym was created. I manually edited the tag on another question that didn't look like a migration candidate to (per comments).

Edit 2: Just noticed that no action has happened on this yet. It seems like a no-brainer, and the question has a net +10 (one downvote, which might reflect that the literal wording of the question differs from its current state of affairs). Is there an issue preventing this from moving forward? FYI, the vast majority of upvotes were received after the proposed action was revised and clarified in comments. Does the question, itself, need to be updated to accurately reflect the desired action?

    The middle options makes the most sense

  • I looked through a few google-apps questions, and I'm surprised how many are on topic. But there were quite a few that are off topic as well, and some that assume that google-apps is, in fact, the add ons in Chrome. Commented Nov 16, 2016 at 23:18

    It's called G Suite, not Google Suite.

    It looks like G Suite is the official name. Suggestion: [g-suite] rather than [google-suite] as the new primary tag; no [google-suite] tag, but include the Google explanation in the wiki excerpt; synonomize [google-apps] with [g-suite].

  • @fixer1234 [g-suite] created (with Google explanation). I don't have enough tag rep to create the synonyms :/

  • @fixer1234 I would have made the synonym but I don't have enough tag rep. I think it might need a mod ...

  • @fixer1234 I've pinged for a mod in chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/114/ask-a-super-user-moderator to create the synonym for us.

  • Do we want existing google-apps to be merged with g-suite, I.e. the tag to be renamed on existing questions, or do we just want the synonym?

  • @Mokubai I suppose a merge makes sense together with the synonym.

  • great, but I also noticed that the g-suite questions are distributed across superuser, webapps, and serverfault.

  • @Tom And? Each site has a different scope and the applicability is different. It is up to each site to handle changes as they see fit.
