Google Products and Services

Google Products & Services

By: Vangie Beal  A Quick Reference to Google's Consumer Products In 1996, Google started out as a research project by Larry Page and Sergey Brin, two Ph.D. students at Stanford University.

Google Profile

Free user profiles available from Google that lets users present themselves on Google products to other Google users. It allows you to control how you appear on Google and tell others more about who you are. With a Google profile, you can easily share your web content on one central location.

Google Office

Google Wallet

A digital payment service from Google designed to make it easier for customers to make online and traditional in-store purchases. Google Wallet functions in two distinct ways: as a mobile payment service and as an online payment service. The Google Wallet mobile payment service is available for select Google Android-powered devices.

Google Nexus

A line of smartphones and tablet devices developed by Google and various hardware partners. The Google Nexus first debuted in early 2010 as the Nexus One, and today the line consists of the Google Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 devices. Google Nexus devices are powered by Google's Android open source mobile operating system.

Google Play

Google Play is Google's renamed and rebranded Android Market online store for purchasing and downloading apps, music, books, movies and similar content for use on Android-powered smartphones, tablets, Google TV and similar devices.

Google Keep

A digital "scratchpad" note-taking application for the Android mobile operating system that serves as Google's answer to Apple's Notes app for Apple iOS mobile devices. Google Keep debuted in March 2013 via Google Play for devices running Android 4.0.3 (" Ice Cream Sandwich") and later.

Google Chrome

Chromebook

Chromebook is a new category of notebook computers and mobile devices that runs Google's cloud-based Chrome OS operating system. While they lack the processing power and higher-end features of standard laptops, Chromebooks are built primarily for Web surfing and are optimized for this purpose with the Google Chrome Web browser as well as near instant-on and instant-resume capabilities.

Google+ (Google Plus)

Google+ (Google Plus) is Google's latest attempt at social networking. Google+ is currently an invitation-only service that delivers functionality and many features similar to those of Facebook. Features in Google+ include "Posts" for posting status updates, "Circles" for sharing information with different groups of people (like Facebook Groups), "Sparks" for offering videos and articles users might like, and "Hangouts" and "Huddles" for video chatting with a friend or group of friends.

Google Dance

In search engine optimization ( SEO), Google Dance is an out-dated slang term used to describe the period of time in which Google used to rebuild its rankings, and as a result of this rebuilding, rankings of Web sites on Google's SERP may fluctuate in order during a several day period.

Google TV

A Smart TV platform from Google and co-development partners Intel, Sony and Logitech that provides an Android-powered interactive television system for users. While Google TV is integrated into some newer televisions and Blu-ray players, consumers that don't have Google TV built into their systems can purchase a separate set-top box that provides Google TV functionality.

Google Voice

Google Voice is an Internet telephony service from Google that enables free worldwide PC-to-PC voice calls and video-enabled calls as well as free PC-to-phone calls within North America.

Google Trends

This page describes the term Google Trends and lists other pages on the Web where you can find additional information.

Google Glass

Google's project program for developing a line of hands-free, head-mounted intelligent devices that can be worn by users as " wearable computing" eyewear. The first product release from Project Glass, Google Glass, is expected to become available for purchase in 2013, and should retail for less than $1500.

    "Living life to the fullest & learning new & interesting topics makes my day. What makes your day?"

    My page is meant to share with my friends, family, networking partners, and anyone interested in establishing great conversations and learning experiences.

    I wish to share new ideas with others and gain knowledge about the future plans of a new small business. I graduated from Kaplan University with my Bachelors of Science in Business Administration majoring in Internet Marketing/New Media and am freelancing projects out in website design, social media setup, branding, and creative marketing tools. You can see my personal portfolio at Holley Jacobs Portfolio. Check out my other blogs - Quotes Are My Passion and Beautiful World Bucket List via my Portfolio under "websites"

    I recently graduated with my Masters in Management majoring in Leadership and will begin another Masters at the University of Nebraska-Omaha in Management Information Systems.

    I love designing websites, branding, quotes, music, volunteering, researching, surfing the net, finding new software to try out, creating digital art (you can see my Donation Art website where I donate 100% of my proceeds to nonprofit organizations that raise awareness about domestic violence and Autism), and most of all; spending time with my family.

    My values are simple, and I follow them in all aspects of my life. They include honesty, productivity, responsibility, creativity, pride, critical thinking, self-motivation, teamwork, and integrity.
    How May I Help You?
