Google Translate

Translate languages in real-time on your mobile phone

Juan Ageitos- tech marketer #spanglish
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.

Never know when you're abroad or get stuck in a situation where a quick translate could be necessary

Google Calendar

Spend less time managing your day, now on iOS

Ben Tossell- newCo
Gotta say that having Google Calendar everywhere just does it for me - I don't need a lot of the bells and whistles that others may.

Within Google calendar, you can schedule an event or reminder as "All-day" which sets in on a day but not a specific time.

Google Photos

Automatic backup and unlimited storage for all your photos

Have an access to your pictures from wherever you are, get in touch with people over a topic, share your captures with others, put in your interest and get a feed filled with amazing photos and ideas, based on the connections you created! All that in a simple app called Google+ Photos!

Charounson Saintilus
It doesn't meet all your requirements, but consider the Google Photos app on mobile. If you enable the assistant, the AI can create albums and videos for you from the photos you've taken on a trip. You can also create albums and share them with the world or particular people.

Though Google positions it as a backup solution, Photos is a pretty solid photo management app for Android even if you don't use the backup option.
Anne-Laure Le Cunff- Founder @ Lysa. Ex-Google.
My favorite app for managing photos and saving space on my phone. With image recognition, location, and editing right trough the app, it makes it super easy to search through old photos, or to create collages and videos. It has lots of cool features but is still very lightweight, and it's very convenient to share with anyone, even if they don't have a Google… See more

Helps presenters connect with their audiences

Google Slides Q&A makes it super easy to connect with your audience, receive feedback, and let people vote on the questions they'd like the speaker to answer. You can also let the audience ask questions anonymously. The best part: it works with any mobile device.

Gboard by Google

Google Search, GIFs, emojis & more—right from your keyboard

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.

Anne-Laure Le Cunff- Founder @ Lysa. Ex-Google.
Definitely the best keyboard for Android.
Vinit Agrawal- Co-Founder at Tars (HelloTars.com)
Google' Gboard. You will rarely go wrong with Google.

Swapped to Gboard after using SwiftKey for years. Gboard is superb and I'll never look back.
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.

Google Photos 2.0

Free storage & automatic organization for all your memories

Gaurav Agrawal- Coder, Thinker, Curious observer
By default, Google photos do this.
Bruno Santos
This an amazing app to share albums with friends
Tejas Kinger- SaaS Product Marketing @ Freshworks Inc
Google Photos would be my best bet. Auto-sync and back-up for all photos whenever a network is available. You can create an album and get everyone to contribute to it. While it isn't the perfect solution, it works.

Google Trips

Exploring the world with all your travel info in one place

Lachlan Campbell- Hack Club design/JS—HS 🎓—they/them—🌈
Google recently released an app for traveling! I don't love it but it surfaces reservations out of Gmail automatically.
Jack Dweck- Product Manager at Unroll.Me
I agree with Lachlan. Google Trips has become indispensable when traveling. It automatically pulls in all of your travel info from Gmail (flights, accommodations, reservations, etc...) and let's you download an easy to read itinerary.
Chakkaradeep- Senior Program Manager, Microsoft
Hands down best app if you want to explore the area you are traveling. You can also download the details offline so you can plan something in your flight before you reach the destination.
