The closest site I could find for Google related questions is Android Enthusiasts. I would like to ask a question about Google Voice & Hangouts. It does have an Android app but it's not a question about the Android OS; only the app. Is there a more appropriate site than Android Enthusiasts to ask such a question?

    Android Enthusiasts isn't just for the OS; it's also for apps.

    I've proposed a Google StackExchange site here: area51.stackexchange.com/proposals/115799/google Jan 2, 2018 at 2:52
  • It is possible to create new stack exchange websites at a website named "area51". I recommend that you propose a new stack exchange site for Google products. Oct 23, 2023 at 2:11
  • The Stack Exchange site named Super User is dedicated to teaching people how to do things in programs intended for use on the the Microsoft Windows operating system. The site named Ask Different is for questions about programme designed to run on a computer with the Apple Operating System. It seems like we could create a Stack Exchange site for programmes created by Google. Oct 23, 2023 at 2:15

While Google services are generally web-based, virtually anything they put on a smartphone is a native app, and would thus be off-topic at Web Applications. You'll be better off at Ask Different or Android Enthusiasts.

To wit:

That said, if you want to ask about the actual web interface for Google's myriad apps, then Web Applications is the place.

    What about Google hardware, like Google Home, Chromebooks, or Chromecasts? I tried Super User but I've already been downvoted minutes later. Jan 2, 2018 at 1:43
  • Chromebooks are on-topic at Super User, but the rest don't really have a home at Stack Exchange.

For anything related to Android, Android Enthusiasts is indeed the best option.

Programming questions involving the Google API are best asked at Stack Overflow.

Most other Google related questions are best suited for Web Applications.

  • @AaronFranke: Super User should have been fine, could you please link to the questions? Nov 27, 2018 at 11:40

In addition, aside from Voice, Google App Engine Python questions are, I believe, on Stack Overflow with the google-appengine-python tag. Google announced a while back they were outsourcing some elements of free support to here. I see some other google-app* tags too.
