Suggested December 2023 Do You Trust Google Enough To Use ‘Pay With Google?’

We have completely different ways of paying for things than we did twenty years ago. While we used to use cash or check and sometimes charge for larger purchases, now people often don’t carry money, never carry a checkbook, and usually do everything with plastic or even sometimes with their smartphone.

Online there are more options, and now there is an additional one being added to the mix. Along with using a credit card, you can also use a system such as Paypal or Apple Pay. And now “Pay with Google” has been introduced, working much like Paypal. We asked our writers, “Do you trust Google enough to use ‘Pay with Google?’ ”

Our Opinion

Nicholas sees that Google has “almost no reason not to be trusted.” Additionally, they’re more capitalized than all the big U.S. banks, so if they offer a payment service, it makes sense on many levels, “from proving trustworthy to having cash backup in case of a ‘bank run,’ “ referencing a group of customers asking for all their money back at the same time, knowing that U.S. banks aren’t in a position to do that.

As an Android user, Damien is already using the Google payment system to buy apps, so there isn’t any reason for him not to trust them on websites. Additionally, “as a publisher, since Pay with Google does not charge a transaction fee, I am already planning on adding it as one of the payment methods for [Make Tech Easier].”

Phil’s only misgiving has nothing to do with finance but everything to do with data. “Google’s data is its business model, not its innovation, science, or services.” Even if they share information about him anonymously, it would still make him uneasy. That being said, he does recognize they are financially stronger than most banks.

Miguel feels that “we give our personally identifiable information too liberally, yet Google has a track record of safeguarding their users’ data from compromise rather efficiently,” so he has mixed feelings. He doesn’t interact with any financial institution for any length of time, withdrawing money from the ATM as soon as he can to pay for things with cash. “If I can avoid using digital finance, I will.” However, when it comes to Google’s payment system, he doesn’t see a reason to not have at least some trust in it. He also agrees with Phil regarding the concern of Google using your purchase history for their own gain.

Ada won’t use it as her sole way of payment, so she’s not that concerned about privacy. She doesn’t care if the world knows she’s buying books, clothes, home appliances, etc. She also sees it as good when a new, solid player is added to the market. However, even though they’re Google, there are already many other players in the field, so she thinks they’ll need some luck in succeeding.

Alex jokes, “For the amount of Google services I use, I better trust them!” He realizes they use personal information to sell things, but notes their products are often the best. They have no legitimate competition when it comes to Google search, and they’ve never given anyone a reason to not trust them. “Whether I use Pay with Google will come down to the quality of the service rather than the trust I place in Google.”

Christopher figures if he’s going to give his financial information to an Internet company, Paypal and Google are by far the best bets. He asks when was the last time we heard of Google’s servers being breached and thinks the biggest security incident with Google was a phishing link with a fake Docs web app. He trusts Google to keep his data safe because “thus far they’ve proven very good at it, and as one of the biggest web service providers on the planet, I have no doubt that doing so has required furious maintenance and upkeep.”

Ryan can see why people would be apprehensive with Pay with Google, but he’s been using his bank’s Android app to pay for things with his phone. “Since Pay with Google allows people to spend their money faster and easier, the only issue I can see is for people who aren’t good at managing their money.”

Personally, I would have no reason for not trusting Google either. I have no reason to use it as an Apple and Paypal user and because the places where I can’t use Apple Pay or Paypal, I use my credit card. The places where I have to input my credit card credentials because I can’t use the others are less likely to be using Pay with Google. But if I was looking for another option, I’d have no problem using Pay with Google.

Master The Google Keyboard: Gboard Tricks You Should Use Now

With the evolution of Android devices with a full-display screen, the virtual keyboard has replaced the physical one, but it wasn’t until 2023 that Google pretty much perfected what a mobile keyboard should be.

Gboard is the best keyboard app for Android

With Gboard — our winner in the best keyboard apps round-up — Google has brought in more features than you could expect from a keyboard app, and since it is a Google-made app, it integrates with the entire Android environment naturally.

Whether you’re using a stock Android device with Gboard pre-installed, or a newcomer who just got their hands on essentially the best keyboard app out there, you might want to familiarize yourself with some of the not-so-obvious features that have been blended into the app.

Best Gboard tips to use now!

At first sight, the Google’s original keyboard app seems nothing out of the ordinary, and since Google has included all of the features seamlessly, it’s easy to miss some of them when they aren’t directly highlighted.

We’ve thoroughly tested the Gboard app and comprised this list of features that we not only loved trying out but makes texting every day so much easier.

1. Multilingual texting

While this may be a feature that most Android keyboard apps feature today, Gboard blows the competition out of the water with support for over 300+ languages, which is quite impressive.

The ability to add a new language to the keyboard is in the settings, and you can actively switch between different language keyboard almost instantaneously.

Press the Google icon, tap on the three-dot menu button and then select the Settings

Tap on Languages – Add Keyboard and choose a language from the list of choices available and press Done.

2. Spacebar as a quick navigation key

It is a fact of life that we as humans have errors, especially when texting on a virtual keyboard as dozens of characters a minute. Now whether you want to remove a particular letter or a word from a sentence or add something in between, you need to tap on it and try to navigate to the sentence with your admittedly fat fingers.

This is why Google has hidden a nifty little way to quickly navigate within the written text using the Spacebar. Once you have a sentence written in the text field, simply swipe across the Spacebar to move the cursor across the text field easily, without having to pinpoint it to the location using your finger.

3. Dedicated number pad

Just like most keyboard apps out there, Gboard also comes with the ability to enter numeric values, but don’t you just want a dedicated number pad for those times when you’re putting down calculations or creating an invoice? Gboard has you covered on this, so all you need to do is:

Tap on the “?123” button at the bottom-left corner of the keyboard.

Now press the “1234” button and you’ll have a full-sized number pad keyboard at your service with mathematical values as well.

4. Speedy Glide typing

While we have to give the credit of this feature to the SwiftKey keyboard that brought it years ago before Gboard even existed, it doesn’t change the fact that the feature has only gotten better as Google adopted it.

For all of those messy typists out there, Glide typing is a feature that allows you to simply swipe across the individual keys of the Gboard, as it automatically recognizes the words you want to type and provides spaces between them as well.

Enable glide typing from the Settings.

Head over to the Google icon, tap on the three-dot menu button and then select the Settings.

Open Gboard and begin swiping across the keyboard and the app will automatically detect the words you mean to type (works best with English).

5. Make capitalization easier

For all of the grammar Nazis out there that you’re trying not to trigger, making sure that you don’t send out typos and capitalize at the right instances can be quite important, especially when you’re putting down a work email.

Gboard makes capitalization easier with the same swiping gesture that it uses for Glide typing, but this time you need to press and swipe the capitalization button and towards the letter that you want to capitalize.

For instance, if you want to write “Andrew” in the middle of a sentence, tap on the Uppercase button and instead of pressing “A”, swipe up to the letter and it will automatically be written in uppercase without you having to manually turn it on and then off again.

6. Simplified One-handed mode

This is already a crowd-favorite feature of the Gboard app, especially for those who are dealing with a smartphone that houses a large display screen where you always need two hands to type. The one-handed mode on Gboard is especially good since it not only helps you openly customize the size of the keyboard but position it from right, left and center as well.

With the Gboard open, press and hold the Enter key.

Select the One-handed mode icon and you’ll see the keyboard size shrink.

Using the buttons on the side, you can Resize, Move the positioning, and Enlarge the keyboard with one tap.

7. Create your own GIFs

One of the most popular features of Gboard in recent years has been the ability to find the snarkiest comebacks with the help of the built-in GIF library. However, Gboard has recently upgraded GIFs to go one step further and help you Make a GIF using the keyboard screen itself.

On Gboard, tap on the Emoji icon and then on GIF option.

Tap on My GIFs and press the + icon to Make a GIF.

Select any of the available Filters you want to use and press the Record icon to create a 5-second GIF clip.

The GIF will then be saved under the My GIFs tab and you’ll be able to use it at any time.

8. Translate from Gboard

Google Translate is probably the best translation app and service you’ll find online, so it makes complete sense for Google to integrate into their keyboard app. With the Google integration, you can not only translate messages that you’ve received but also write your message in a language and have it translated and ready to use right from Gboard itself.

Tap on the Google icon in the top left, and then on the Translate icon (you will know the icon once you see it).

Accept the warning by tapping on OK button.

Select the source language and the target language using the drop-down menu.

Type in your sentence and it will be automatically translated into your desired language, at which point you can simply copy and paste it.

9. Quick Delete gesture

What we like the most about Gboard is how it makes even to most mundane little things about the art of texting so simplified, that it ends up making things a lot easier for you bit by bit.

For instance, you wanted to delete something you’ve written or just get rid of a paragraph entirely, you’d usually have to highlight all of it manually and hit backspace. But with Gboard, you can use the Backspace button as a gesture to highlight specific words and remove them almost instantaneously.

Press and hold the Backspace button and swipe it to the left to highlight the words you want to delete.

Once you see the words highlighted, release the Backspace button and the words will be automatically deleted from the text field.

10. Frequently used words shortcuts

There are certain words, phrases, and even sentences in the form of your email address, your phone number, or your home address that you often end up texting around. While Google has an excellent auto-fill service to help complete your regularly typed in words, there is also the ability to set up shortcut words, which would then bring up the sentences or phrases you have saved in the Personal dictionary.

Head over to the Google icon, tap on the three-dot menu button and then select the Settings icon.

Tap on Dictionary – Personal dictionary and then select your default language.

Tap on the + icon on the top-right corner, enter your sentence or phrase and then put in the Shortcut word to trigger it.

The next time you’re texting, entering your Shortcut word will bring up the sentence or phrase you had saved it within your personal dictionary.

11. Permanent Number row

If you’re regularly opening the numeric keyboard in the Gboard, you’ll start to miss your full-sized computer keyboard where the number pad is right above the QWERTY keyboard itself. Google understands your pain, which is why the Gboard comes with the ability to add a permanent number row above the QWERTY keyboard.

Head over to the Google icon, tap on the three-dot menu button and then select the Settings icon.

Tap on the Preferences option and enable the Number row toggle switch.

Head back to any app and open the Gboard to view the newly added number row to the keyboard.

12. Stickers, GIF and Emoji search

Considering that Google is originally a search engine company, it seems fitting that they’ve included not only Google search natively into Gboard, but into other elements as well. For instance, since there are more than 70 different Emojis in Android 8.0 Oreo, and probably thousands and thousands of GIFs out there, adding the ability to use the search option to find the right Emoji and GIF is just perfect.

Open Gboard tap on the Emoji icon left to the spacebar. (Press and hold the comma key left to the spacebar to reach emoji icon if you don’t see it already.)

Tap on the Search bar at the top of the keyboard and then type in the kind of Emoji/GIF/Sticker you’re looking for.

You’ll find relevant results on the top, limited to maximum two rows, but to see more, tap the search icon in the bottom left to find even more results. Tap on the emoji you want to use to select it.

13. Themes for Gboard

There are certain Android apps that go above and beyond when it comes to offering keyboards with heavily packed themes and color schemes. While Google’s Gboard may not be the most flamboyant keyboard app in terms of themes, there certainly is no shortage of it.

Apart from simply choosing different pre-set themes from Google, you can download themes, and even choose your very own images to be the background for Gboard.

Head over to the Google icon, tap on the three-dot menu button and then select the Settings icon.

Tap on Theme, select one of the many options available and press Apply to confirm.

Head back to Gboard to check out your newly-applied keyboard theme.

14. Remove block on offensive words

If you’ve been using the Google search engine long enough, you know that Google likes to keep it clean and has offensive words and phrases chalked out of regular search. The same goes for the Gboard app, where your regular use of profanity may be easily and persistently autocorrected into something that is safer for all audiences to read. However, there’s an easy way to remove the child-safe policy from Gboard right from the Settings itself.

Head over to the Google icon, tap on the three-dot menu button and then select the Settings icon.

Tap on Text correction and toggle off the Block offensive words option.

15. Type with your voice

The voice recognition ability of Google has been around for years now, and it has only improved after being integrated into the core of the Android OS.

Apart from what marvels Google Assistant can do, the Gboard makes use of the same voice recognition feature to bring voice typing, helping you not only text hands-free in situations like when you’re driving, but also does this job with pinpoint accuracy.

Open Gboard and press the Microphone icon on the right corner of the screen.

Start narrating the words and Gboard will begin typing it into the text field.

Press the Microphone icon once again when you wish to stop narrating.

16. Add punctuations and fractions

Just like you’d expect, Gboard makes it easy to autocorrect words and capitalize the right letter, it also offers easy access to punctuations that may not be directly visible. Additionally, the keyboard also offers numeric values such as fractions, and special characters without you having to look for it under the microscope.

On the Gboard press and hold the full stop button and you’ll see a range of other punctuations pop up to choose from.

Similarly, you can access fractions by pressing and holding numeric values on the keyboard.

 17. Floating keyboard

Beginning with Gboard version 7.6 (beta), Google has introduced a floating keyboard, which works just like other floating keyboards. There’s a handle at the bottom that lets you pick up the keyboard and move it around to wherever you want it on the screen. You can resize it to something that fits your needs and in case the keyboard remains idle at some place for a period of time, the opacity fades to about 50%, making it kinda transparent.

To bring to life the floating keyboard, you need to be actively using the Gboard keyboard. Tap on the “G” in the top left corner of the keyboard so that suggestions can be displayed. You should see a 3-dot menu on the suggestions’ strip than when you tap, you’ll see options that include “Floating.” Tap on this and you are good to go!

This feature is still in beta, but it should be available for everyone soon. So, if you want in the fun, make sure to grab version 7.6 beta and above via the APK Mirror.

How To Use Google Messages On Desktop

Google Messages is the default text messaging and SMS app on many Android phones these days. It’s a powerful tool that has many tricks up its sleeve and allows users to answer their phone’s text messages from their computer.

Sure, apps like WhatsApp, Signal and Telegram offer the same functionality, but if you’d rather use Google Messages for your texting needs, this article demonstrates how you can use Messages on your desktop computer.

Before We Get Started

We should note one thing before we get down to business. You won’t be able to use Google Messages on your desktop computer without having the Google Messages app installed on your Android device.

If your phone doesn’t come with the app, no problem. You can download it from the Play Store, then set it as your default messaging app on your device.

How to Get Started Using Google Messages on Your Desktop

To begin using Google Messages on your PC, you will have to access this page in your browser.

Once the Google Messages web page is loaded in your browser, you’ll see a few instructions appear on the screen.

The first thing you need to do is go back to your phone and open the Google Messages app. Tap on the three vertical dots in the upper-right corner and select the “Messages for web” option. Tap on the blue “QR code scanner” button to proceed.

This will open a QR code scanner on your phone. Aim your mobile device at the computer screen to scan the code displayed there. Messages for web should immediately load in your window.

Messages will ask you whether to remember this computer so that you can log in to your account instantly after visiting the Google Messages web page in your browser. You can do so if you want, although this is not such a good idea if you’re sharing the computer with someone else.

Now you can access your Google Messages on your PC and send and respond to text messages while you’re busy working on your computer without picking up your phone.

What Google Messages for Web Can and Can’t Do

Obviously, Google Messages for web doesn’t offer all the features that its mobile version does. For starters, you can’t place phone calls form within the web client like you can from your phone. You can, however, make video calls using both versions, as Google Messages will revert to Google Duo to provide this capability.

Other functions are inaccessible as well. For instance, you won’t be able to rely on Google Assistant to do stuff for you when using the service on your desktop. You can’t schedule messages either like you can with the mobile app.

However, other features, such as dark mode, group messaging, the ability to send emoji, GIFs and stickers, and lots others, are still onboard.

Wrapping Up

If you like chatting with people using Google Messages but aren’t a big fan of typing your messages using a tiny virtual keyboard, you can easily move all your texting to your PC. It’s extremely easy and convenient to do so.

Speaking of virtual keyboards, perhaps it’s time to upgrade yours. Check out our list of the seven best Gboard alternatives for Android users. Also;, learn how to fix issues with an Android phone not receiving text messages.

Would You Report A Competitor To Google?

I was recently involved with an interesting situation with (yet another) large brand falling out of the good graces with Google. For those playing along at home, this time it was chúng tôi (via the WSJ) walking the path that J.C Penney and Forbes had before it in previous weeks. Fun stuff all around.

Borne from some conversations with my peeps at the SEO Dojo, I got to thinking about these recent ‘outings’ and how SEOs that I know feel about them. We shall have a look at the two main camps I’ve seen and then you can tell ME what you think…

Sound like fun or what? Sure…..

Fight Club

The first school we are going to look at is; Fight Club. And the first rule of fight club? (all together now) Don’t talk about fight club. These folks believe that SEOs are a fraternity and while we may disagree at times, we should never ‘rat’ each other out to ‘the man’.

For starters, the term ‘ratting’ is troubling because it shows the venom. It is more appropriately named ‘reporting’ and I guess ‘rat’ makes those doing it hopefully feel scuzzy or something. The folks in this segment carry super-secret SEO decoder rings and believe we should keep it amongst us.

This is interesting as a few old school folks told me that they’d even hammer each other privately when one was spamming the SERPs. Like a sports team, it was dealt with ‘behind closed doors.

The Little Guy

On the other side of the conversation we have the little guy. From here is the stance that a smaller retailer can’t compete against the big brand. They don’t have the budgets nor the leverage. Furthermore it seems that Google often gives a brand more leniency with the rules than the small enterprise. This is due to search quality issues and a conversation for another day.

Let the Battle Begin

There are a lot of common tactics that are employed by SEOs that given hard scrutiny, wouldn’t stand up. I have spent the last few days staring at Google guidelines and certainly there is a lot of wiggle room for interpretation and what was acceptable last year, may not be today. This can be frustrating to SEOs. If Google opened up a channel for us to honestly ask if a tactic was viable, would we use it? LOL… oh… hold on.. gotta wipe the tears away.

What About Me?

I know… you care right? I thought that it was best, before I turn it over to you, that I make my own case. And hey, sorry to dissapoint, but I can see it from all sides. There is a big difference between doing SMB SEO and Corp/Big Brand SEO. I have done both over the years.

Fight Club? While these folks are a little aggressive for my tastes, I can see things from that camp as well. Just do your job, beat them honestly. Keep the dirty laundry in house. The only question I do have on this end is; are these folks doing questionable link building? Is that why the aggressiveness?

To get things rolling, I asked a few folks in the SEO Dojo Chat room, here’s some responses;

“I’m a realist. We all have to expect our competitors to do what it takes to win, whether it’s a big brand or small business. Small businesses entering certain markets need to expect to compete with brands that have been around for a long time, who have enormous marketing budgets. Big brands using these budgets to fund risky techniques should expect thier smaller competitors to look for these tactics to report, and eliminate them as competition.

I personally choose to find creative ways to compete rather than report a competitor. At the same time, some of the larger brands are treated like a star quarternack in a small town. We all know they are “juicing”, but they are too important to suspend from play. This not only sets a bad example, but stacks the deck against the second string players who have been working hard to get in the game.” – Jeff Sebring

“Personally, while I don’t like the idea of one firm or individual ratting out another, and have no intention of participating in it, I also don’t feel sorry for anyone that gets caught with their paws in the cookie jar. They either knew the risks, or they should have!

So I’m inclined to say, play your game any way you choose, but don’t come whining to me if you get caught bending the “rules”. Report anyone you want, too. I won’t be doing it, because I’m just not put together that way. And if I find out you’re doing it, I may have to reevaluate my opinion of you. But in the long run, I think our industry needs to have some level of transparency, if we don’t all want to continue battling against ever-increasing distrust.” – Doc Sheldon

Now it’s YOUR turn. Where do you stand on this? And why…
