find your google product

Apps Name

Most Google products can be located simply by typing the name of the product followed by dot google dot com. It is oftentimes faster to go directly to the website rather than trying to locate the icon in the apps chooser. Some Google products are not available in the apps chooser so it is important to memorize this simple pattern.
