Super helpful when visiting far corners of the world. You can even have a conversation with the locals and they'll love your effort to communicate. You can download languages for offline use.

When on the go, and in an area without your native tongue speakers, google translate is a must for simple phrases.

When traveling to places where I'm not fluent in the local language I find GTranslate helps a lot - especially using the camera to read food labels or signs!

I'm pretty sure Google Photos quite literally replaced Picasa. Anyways, Photos is absolutely fantastic for categorising and displaying your photos. The AI to organise and separate objects, people, and pets is scarily good (and useful).

Hangouts is now more targeted to business users, but it still does the job if you want something that's platform-agnostic, and using your Gmail address to log in.

Used this on my last trips to Italy and Spain. Loved it. I think the app would be good enough just with the Walking Tours it can produce. That feature alone is worth the price of admission. Which is ... free. 😜

Google Play. It is much better than Spotify for the following main reasons: The app is more stable and doesn’t freeze or crash - this is very important for me.

I'd recommend PhotoScan too... Will take you time but you have no worries around losing them along the way.

Really good app. Scans well and doesn't have the flash/glare issue that other apps seems to due to an algorithm that removes it. It's clever, but takes time if you have lots and lots of photos.
