Google has a lot of services. In fact, the sheer number of them could be up to a hundred. Out of those services, there are a few common ones that a lot of us use in our day to day. For example Google Contacts, Maps, Translate, Docs, Drive and oh, let’s not forget Google Search. However, there are some lesser knows services that you may not be aware of that actually make your life a whole lot easier.
Google Password Manager
If you have signed in to your Google account on your phone, every time you enter a new password, Google asks if you want that password to be remembered. It saves your logins across different websites and even apps. What you might not know is that apart from autofilling your passwords on the sites you’ve checked, you also have access to Google Password Manager that lists all your logins (with passwords), and allows you to manage them.
Google Find My Android
Have you ever lost your phone while it was on silent? That’s always stressful. Google Find My Android is an app that shows you the exact location of your phone using Google Maps. Maps is overkill if you lost your phone in your room, but the service also allows you to ring your phone remotely. Your phone will ring loudly, even if you’ve put it on silent or vibrate.
Google Alerts is a service designed to keep you informed about topics that you may be interested in. It works by sending you alerts every time that a topic you have specified is mentioned on the internet. You can set up alerts for your name, your company and any other topics that you may be interested in keeping up to date with. You can also add specifications to your alerts to control where they are sent, which sources you get alerts from, etc.
Google Photos is a cloud based photo service that allows you to get rid of all the media taking up space on your phone by uploading them to the cloud. You also have access to all your images on whatever device that you sign into your Google account on.
Google Trends is a service that literally tells you what it trending in your part of the world. Trends can be sorted by categories as well, allowing you to see more specific trends in your region like which movies are trending, what music is trending, etc.
Google Arts And Culture
For those who have always wanted to learn about art but have never found the time to be able to. Google Arts and Culture exposes you to all the art that you could ever dream of. The service even allows you to explore musuems in 3D right from behind your computer.
The final entry on our list is the Google Dashboard. This Google service is designed to give you oversight over all the Google services that you have signed up for. You can see which devices you’ve logged in on, see your browser bookmarks and even adjust your settings for the other Google apps that you’ve signed in on.
