Thinking that you’re a power user of Google services? Think again, I might be able to prove you wrong. 😉
We know, Google is much more than a search engine and many of its services are overlooked by many people. Here are the top 6 Google services you may not be knowing about but are pretty nifty.
#1. What do you love?
Previously mentioned WDYL (What do you love) shows results from different Google products for your search query. This one is extremely useful when you’re researching a topic or a person. Get started by entering a search query, you get results from Youtube, Google Blog search, Maps, Translate and many more Google products.

#3. Google Offers

Photovine is a smart phone app made by Google which promises to make photo sharing more fun. It is still not released but you can always ask for an invite.
#5. Google Wallet
With Google Wallet, you can transform your smart phone into a wallet. Google is currently working on smart phones with inbuilt card readers, so the only plastic you need to carry is your phone. The card reader scans your credit card and stores virtual version of it in the micro chip of the mobile, so the next time you shop online, you can just tap and pay.

#6. A Google a Day
