Google Areo is a new app for ordering food or home services in Mumbai & Bengaluru.
Internet giant Google Inc. has quietly launched an Android app named Areo, an aggregator which combines food delivery and hyperlocal home services (such as beauty, fitness, plumber, electrician, carpenter, and so on) in one place. Google has reportedly partnered with UrbanClap and Zimmber for home and beauty services, and Freshmenu, Box8, and Faasos for food delivery, as of now.
Currently operational in Mumbai and Bengaluru, the app is available as a free download on the Google Play Store. This easy-to-use app first detects your location, and then lists the food delivery and home service options which are available in your area. Multiple payment options are available, including Cash on Delivery.
Though Google Areo is a good initiative, but still there is a long way to go. For someone who is already using the UrbanClap or Faasos app, there isn’t enough incentive to move to Google Areo.
