Another Android app has just landed at the Google Play Store and this time it’s one of Google’s own. The free Areo app in India offers home services as well as food deliveries, although at this early stage you’ll need to be in the city of Mumbai or Bangalore to take advantage of it. The new Google app should not only assist those looking to easily connect with professionals but is also likely to benefit service providers by bringing in additional business.
The new Google shopping app for India is a one-stop shop for those essential occasions that you need help at home, and comes shortly after the launch of Google Play Music All Access in the country. It covers thousands of home services and local goods, so whether you’re looking for a local cleaner, electrician, painter, or plumber, or a personal service such as a beautician or wedding help, the Areo app will allow you to look conveniently and quickly. You can book your required service for a time that suits you, and once you’ve sorted out your home you might want to turn your attention to feeding the family. In this respect, the app can fulfill orders for food delivery from an array of chefs, local restaurants, and providers. You can search through menus for what you need by your choice of particular dishes or your preferred restaurants, and even filter options for vegetarian and non-vegetarian food.
Areo offers a simple and secure checkout procedure whereby you can pay via netbanking or card, or alternatively with cash on delivery. There is also a detailed review feature included with the new app, allowing users to check various aspects such as the promptness and efficiency of service. Alternatively, if you’re looking for food recommendations the reviews cover food quality, the accuracy of order, value, hygiene and more about the various providers. Although the app only launched for India yesterday, it’s already gathering interest and favorable user reviews on the Google Play Store. Currently, it has a promising 4.1-star rating, with many commenters hoping that the app will soon cover areas outside Mumbai and Bangalore. However, there’s nothing official from Google yet about how soon the usage of the app will spread to further cities and towns.
