Google Apps training extension delivers interactive training

by bernt & torsten

Are you using Google Apps, do you feel like you really don’t know how to use it properly?

When I work with Google Docs and Google Calendar, I feel that way quite often. I know how to use them – I don’t know how to use each feature and option like a productivity ninja!

If you sometimes feel the same I definitely recommend you check out ‘Training for Google Apps’.

This free extension from Google delivers interactive training and walkthroughs for a number of Google App services, including Calendar, Classroom, Docs, Drive, Forms, Gmail, Google+, Groups, Hangouts, and more.

Once installed it integrates seamlessly in native Google products, whether they’re opened in a browser tab or opened as a window.


“Set up the Training for Google Apps Chrome extension to access interactive, self-paced Google Apps lessons directly in your browser. The extension adds a Training menu to Google Apps services, including the Admin console. Click the menu to see relevant lessons. Each lesson is quick and easy-to-follow, with onscreen instructions and callouts to guide you. 

From there you can access step-by-step in-app video tutorials, product features, overviews, etc. It is extremely well put together, and something Chrome OS users have needed for years!


The add-on delivers a real in-app experience, with all training taking place in the Google App you’re using. No need to leave an application to learn how to use it helps.


Not every app/service is covered (Google Keep among them) but most of the more complicated or feature-dense of the search giant’s app offerings are.

Training for Google Apps is a free extension available for Google Chrome on Windows, Mac and Linux and Google Chrome OS.
