Everybody loves a good list of tips and tricks. Even Google. The search giant has even compiled its own list of Google tips and tricks – 154 to be exact – broken down into five categories: do more, save time, new device, ask Google, and improve access. The list will only get bigger over time, encompassing everything from Photos to Google Play to Chrome.
Spanning 20 Google apps, services, settings and even Android itself, there’s bound to be something for everyone. Need help with Chromecast? Want to learn some new voice commands? Keen to spice up your next presentation? Eager to lock down your account settings? It’s all there.
You can choose from the five main categories, from one of the 20 apps and services or a combination of both. When you combine categories you narrow down your results even further. So you can choose to “do more” to see all of those tips, or “do more” in Android, on YouTube, with Google Drive, in the Play Store or on Chromecast. Likewise, you can “save time” in the Google app, Chrome, Gmail or Maps.
Considering the incredible depth, breadth and complexity of Google’s properties, official lists like these are great. While the current list might seem a little straightforward for the average Android aficionado, it’s still fun to go through the list and see if there’s anything you don’t know. I’ll still remember the day I learned you could swipe the URL bar in Chrome to switch tabs. Mind blown.
It’s not clear how quickly this list will grow, but considering the vast scope of Google’s empire, any help is appreciated.
