Technology is meant to ease one’s life but not everyone finds it easy to use or adopt. It’s primarily the reason why tech support page or tutorial videos exist. Now if you are new to Android and don’t have an Android user around to help, Google has you covered in its own way.
Google has introduced a new minisite that offers various troubleshooting tips in the form of cards. The featured section loads up front which solves some of the common queries like changing wallpaper, getting weather updates, accessing photos, music streaming or using voice to navigate the device.
Google also has other sections like privacy and security, voice, camera and photo, battery, customisation, apps and settings. The best part here is the card-like interference with Material Design and each card under a section listing a particular problem and steps to bypass an issue. Clicking on learn more option inside each card brings up a pop-up windows with step-by-step instructions.
With Android having more than 50 per cent market share across mobile operating systems globally, a helping hand is probably just few meters away but what Google has achieved here is the simplicity of tips and tricks. Google has made tips and tricks extremely simple and easy to understand. It’s less jargon and more getting things done.
Next time someone hits you with an Android query, you know where to direct them.
