Search engine giant, Google has launched an Indian market-specific, multi-purpose application called the Areo.

Currently, Google Areo offers food delivery and home services in Bengaluru and Mumbai regions. Going by the list of services (offered and coming), Google Areo is sure to find many takers in India, and also certainly ruffle the feathers of the domestic service apps-- Justdial and Zomato, as they offer similar services.

With Google having such high reputation, they have to come up with a new game plan or disappear in to the oblivion. Yes, Zomato and Justdial offers discount coupons for users availing their app service, but it won't be enough. They will now be forced to bring more lucrative offers similar in the lines of Reliance Jio's latest Dhan Dhana Dhan offer.
