On-Demand Google Apps Training from Synergyse

Earlier this year, Google acquired the in-app training service (and Chrome extension) called Synergyse. Installing this extension gives you online answers to your questions whenever they might arise!

The icon uses Google colors to let you know you can find answers to your Google-related questions, and the number in the small red circle shows you how many new tutorials are available to help you. (Once you watch some, the number reduces accordingly.)
