It seems like just yesterday that Google was nothing more than a search engine I would visit when trying to find relevant websites about the topics I was researching. However, the days of Google “putting all of their eggs into one basket,” so to speak, are long gone.
Now when I think of Google, more than just one product comes to mind. They’re a brand that offers a wide variety of innovative and exciting technology, and in my opinion, Google is “The Ultimate Brand.”
Below is a list of other Google products that make them “The Ultimate Brand.”
- Smart TVs
- Smart Phones (Android OS)
- Computers (Chromebook)
- Apps (Google Voice for Android, Google Docs, Gmail for Android etc.)
- Programs (Google Voice for PC, Chrome Web Browser, Google Docs for PC, etc.)
If you’re like me, you don’t limit yourself to just one of Google’s many products. In fact, there aren’t many products/services Google has to offer, that I haven’t at least tried, and there are several that I use on a daily basis. From answering business phone calls, to taking my work with me on the go, to finding a good movie for me and the family during my off time, and pretty much everything in between, Google has me covered.
Google Products/Services I Use Every Day – Top Three List
#1 Google Voice – Adds a second telephone line for business or individual use, and it allows you to check your voicemail online.
Some of the many features are:
- Forward any incoming calls to your other phones.
- Send a text or place a call right from the comfort of your PC.
- Calls and texts made to The U.S. or Canada are completely free.
- Very low rates for International calls and texts.
- Block any unwanted callers, screen and/or record calls, get your voicemail transcribed and sent to you via text or email, and much more.
#2 Google Chrome – Surf faster and more securely with the best web browser on the market.
Additionally, Google Chrome offers:
- Tons of themes and other customizations via the Chrome Store.
- Thousands of extensions and other add-ons that make productivity or anything else that you do online a breeze.
- Click on any phone number to place a call right from your browser, and with the click of the mouse, see your entire call history from any webpage (Google Voice add on required).
#3 Android OS – An operating system that truly brings meaning to the word “smart” in “Smart Phone.” There are just too many features that Android OS has to offer. Going into explicit detail would go beyond the boundaries for this particular article.
*Bonus Google Glass – Although they’re not yet available to the general public, be sure to check out the up-and-coming Google Glass. With these glasses, the information highway is just a glance away! While I am obviously a big fan of Google, and Google Glass looks like some cool technology, I have to admit it’s a little scary too. I can think of a few ways Google Glass could be used that just really creeps me out! Can you?
