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!

This is probably the most common tool which is not used well. To me the formula is simple now: Better you manage your calendars the more you can have fun!

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.

Gboard a new keyboard from Google for your iPhone. It has all the things you would expect from a great keyboard — GIFs, emojis, and Glide Typing — plus Google Search built in.

Google' Gboard. You will rarely go wrong with Google.
The Verge
Gboard, Google's iOS and Android keyboard app, has quietly updated its design by moving its GIF-making button up next to the word suggestion bar. The GIF-making feature has been around since last September, but it was hidden behind the emoji button on the bottom.
Engadget
For the uninitiated, Gboard puts Search right in the keyboard. And, it also adds GIFs, emoji-centric tools (including type and scrawl to search), and glide and voice typing to the mix -- which may make you kick your other keyboards to the curb. With the latest update, Gboard now boasts 120 languages in total.
Engadget
Simply fire up the Make-a-GIF button and record a Loop, which is a three-second Boomerang-like format. Or a Fast-Forward that lets you record up to a minute of footage and spits out a sped-up GIF. While we can confirm the button's new placement on iOS, as you can see below, we don't see it on Android yet.

Set it and forget it on your mobile device. I never have to worry about the photos I take. Everything goes to Google Photos, and I can clean off my phone's storage once I know there up in the cloud. This is one service that Google totally nailed for its value, ease of use and intelligence.

I know every single photo I take will be saved in the cloud for eternity :) I can search by faces, keywords, dates and access all those memories. It now supports google lense if you are on a google pixel.

Does a great job of pulling in itinerary and suggesting destinations, but has a hard time supporting scheduled things e.g. tickets you buy to access a specific destination at a specific time.

It syncs your trip information from Gmail, and shows things to do. Also, you can plan your trip and save. You can see all the reservations from this app.

Google trips is amazing! Instead of switching between emails and maps and googling stuff I need, I can just use one app that has it all - automatically gets tickets and hotel bookings from my email, downloaded an offline map, pinpointed the most important things on it and it even suggests stuff you can do. It's awesome.
