    You are asking two questions here. The questions about tags on webapps.stackexchange.com should be directed to webapps.meta.stackexchange.com. – Vidar S. Ramdal Mar 21 '17 at 13:36

    Yes, see my first comment. We like questions to be as specific as possible. If you have two questions, post two different questions. In this case, the other question (about tags) is best suited for webapps.META.stackexchange.com – Vidar S. Ramdal Mar 21 '17 at 13:51

    This question doesn't show any search/research effort. Reference How to Ask. – Rubén Mar 22 '17 at 2:44

Google Apps was renamed G Suite on September 26, 2016.

G Suite for Education was introduced on October 4, 2016.

  • How do people pronounce G Suite for Education? If they are in an education environment, do they just say "G Suite"? Do they use an acronym, such as GSE (analogous to the old GAFE)? Do they still say GAFE out of habit? Do I need to ask a separate question? – aparente001 Mar 21 '17 at 13:57

    @aparente001 That is really not a question for this site, which is about using web applications. Perhaps you should take the tour, see which questions are on topic and browse around the site for a while to find out what questions are being asked here. – Vidar S. Ramdal Mar 21 '17 at 13:59
  • Well, take you for example. You were knowledgeable enough about G Suite for Education to be able to answer my question; this suggests that perhaps you have conversed with others about it on occasion; if so, how do you refer to it? I'm pretty sure I can ask this on ELU SE, but I'm also pretty sure no one there will know the answer.... – aparente001 Mar 21 '17 at 14:06

    I was about to post the self-same links. A simple web search for "google apps for education is now g suite" or similar would have found the same information. – ale Mar 21 '17 at 14:08

    @aparente001 The fact that some people on this site might know something about a topic does not necessarily make that topic relevant for this site. I downvoted this question, because I feel it is off topic here. I also answered it, in case the question is left open. Please see the help center - the guidelines for on topicness are actually quite specific. – Vidar S. Ramdal Mar 21 '17 at 14:09
