Google’s Inside Search page now offers a holiday guide that details how folks can use Google products to fully enjoy the Thanksgiving and Black Friday season.
The first topic, Get Cooking, gave a Google Docs link for creating a menu to share with guests, and it suggested live cooking lessons over Hangouts. It further recommended users save and share photos with Instant Upload on the Google+ mobile app. Football fans on Turkey Day can use Google’s YouTube to follow their favorite teams, while Knowledge Graph is available for aggregating fast sport stats alongside live updates from Voice Search on the Google Search App.
As for Staying Connected during the holidays, Google said it could help friends and family check flight statuses via Web search. Just type “airline + flight number” to get departure and arrival times. Meanwhile, Black Friday shoppers can browse holiday catalogs online, find deals through Google Shopping, or speed through malls with Indoor Maps on Google Maps.
Last but not least, Google said folks should “get in the holiday spirit with Google Play” by downloading a “free book, TV show or song to enjoy with family and friends,” and it asked users to share their favorite moments with the hashtag #turkeytalk.
