My favourite app is Google. It is also called 1 followed by 100 zeros. I like that app because Google app always gets me the best results from the web. That’s the case regardless if I am looking for some text content, video, images or something else.
Personalization is something that I love and I love to search for that awesome features. Google is one of the world’s most advanced security systems and easy to use privacy tools.
Google was founded by Larry Page and Sergey Brin while they were PhD students at Stanford University in California in September 1998. Eric Schmidt is the first Google’s CEO (Chief Executive Officer) in March 2001. The current CEO of Google is Sundar Pichai.
Sundar Pichai is born on the 10th of June in 1972 in Madurai (Tamil Nadu). Google is a company whose mission is to organize the world’s information and make it universally accessible to everyone and very useful.
Now let’s take Google map, firstly just imagine how big that (any place or something) image is and how Google is providing it to everyone with an Internet connection for free. So, it is a boon for us from Larry Page and Sergey Brin. Not only that, it has a map of the entire world, not the map that is hanging in your geography class rather it is an extremely detailed map with the destinations, signals and many more. Using Google Maps, that I can not only see the shortest route to somewhere but I can see the fastest and traffic-less route. It is just so amazing technology.
You will get a good bunch of services from Google for free. The ones I will use frequently in Google are searching for the new word and quotes for the day, translating the languages from another language, finding out the best route from Google Maps, Google Lens help me to find the unknown things by scanning the things and scanning QR Codes in that Google Lens and mathematics problems which is the most important one so that I can solve any problem without using a calculator in my other hand.
Even in this COVID-19 pandemic, Google is exceedingly using. So that we can get more information on COVID-19 symptoms, finding Covid-19 testing centres near us, preventing ourselves from Corona and precautions that we should take in the COVID-19 pandemic. The other apps of Google are Google Maps, Google Assistant, Google Drive, Google Playbooks, Google Now, Google Search app, Google Chrome, Google Shopper.
