“Google Is Your Friend” – Anonymous
The above quote is not new to anyone. We often hear it wherever we go. Google has become a very important part of our lives. Whenever we’re seeking information, latest news, and trends, Google’s there to help. If we wanted to explore new places, we simply head to Google and its interactive map will guide us in every step of the way. Google has become our best friend because it always seems to cater for most of our needs. We’ve found ourselves depending on Google so much that we can’t function very well without its help.
If you think that Google’s capability is only limited to what you’ve learned so far, think again! Google’s capabilities are vastly more than you know! Here is the secret Google hacks to make your life happier and easier. At the end of the day, you’ll have to thank Google for it!
Say Hello to Allo!
When we talk about Google’s chat app, we think automatically about Google Hangout. It turns out it’s not the only Google chat app available for us! If you haven’t already, try to say hello to Allo! Allo is a Google Chat app that lets you have some awesome doodling and fun stickers to use as you chat with your friends.
Aside from that, the notable feature of Allo is that it lets you search anything you need without exiting the app! This is really handy if you’re confused about something that your friend said as you can instantly search its meaning or fish out some information without exiting your chat app. This provides a seamless communication and information to you.
Need an Alarm? Timer Is Here to Save the Day!
Let’s face it. Most of us rely on our alarm clocks (whether the manual or digital one) for a wake-up call every morning. If you found your alarm clocks on cell phones or apps not working anymore, you can rely on Google for one. Just type r in Google Search and indicate what time you want to wake up. If you’re running or exercising, you can also use this to as your stopwatch app. Easy, peasy, right?
Translate Pesky Texts
Traveling is fun and an exciting activity. However, it can be quite daunting if you’re traveling in a country where English is not the official language. Or if not, you’re traveling in a country where most of its population are not well versed in the English language. Deciphering the signage on the streets, the food menu, and other landmarks we stumble upon as we travel can be a daunting task.
Moreso if it doesn’t have its equivalent English translation, right? Fret not because Google can help you with this! With the use of your cellphone’s camera, the Google translate app can translate it for you. Simply go to the app and capture a particular sign you want to get translated and voila! You can now read its English translation! Pretty cool, right?
