The easiest access to the Google universe

Image from store Black Menu for Google™
Description from store Black Menu for Google gives you quick access to your favorite Google services with a convenient drop-down menu that lets you use Search, Google+, Translate, and many others without leaving the page you’re on. Click on menu items to get a small windowed preview or click on the open in new button on the right to open them in a new tab. Customize the menu by pointing at ‘Add’ and dragging/clicking the services you want from a comprehensive list of services. To remove services, drag them to the right to remove them. Access these and more with Black Menu for Google: Google Search. Quickly search the web or switch tabs to search for images, books, news, etc.—all within the mini window. Google+. Share the current page, or check your latest Google notifications. Navigate all of Google+ as you would on a mobile device. Google Translate. Type or paste text into the box to get a quick translation for that comment you received in a foreign language. View your translate history and save your favorite ones. Google Maps. Find the next restaurant to try out by using the mini map that has search, Street View, and layers for satellite, traffic, public transport and cycling. YouTube. Watch popular videos or those recommended to you. Do a search and filter the results to find that one video you wanted to share. Sign in to find useful shortcuts at the bottom. Google News. Read top news from your locale or any country you choose. Also browse sections like World, Business, Sci/Tech and Entertainment. Use search to find news about any topic. Gmail. Get a full-featured Gmail inbox to check or send mail from. Reply to colleagues, edit labels, forward emails, or archive them—do almost everything Gmail can do right from the menu. Google Drive. Browse folders or search for files in a nice familiar layout. View your documents as a list or see images in a grid view. Click the add button to upload files or make new ones. Google Calendar. See your upcoming events summarized in a list. Toggle which calendars you’d like to see from the side drawer or just search for specific events. Google Keep. Create lists, reminders, or paste snippets from the web. All your notes are here, including archived ones. Organize and rearrange them as you want. Apps page. Access shortcuts to common (and obscure) Google websites like Google Contacts, Google Groups, Google Art Project, Google Follow Your World and 450+ more! Right click the Black Menu icon to send me feedback, suggestions, or to report a problem.

  • (2022-11-27) Gary Lekkas: It worked fine until the last update ruined it. It will no longer show Gmail and only gives a message about offline messages. Contacted publisher but they failed to respond to my email. Hopefully this will spur them into action.
  • (2022-11-25) Tuhin Chowdhury: It's very good extension for accessing Google Apps from any tab. But right clicking selected texts to translate doesn't work always. Finally, please add Google Collab shortcut.

  • (2022-09-11) ҈: Приложение "Закладки" не работает☹️(404. That’s an error.)
  • (2022-08-08) Franki Am: Все было хорошо, и вот началось. Зачем поставили по умолчанию в переводчике язык как автоопределение? Это еще пол беды - так еще и поменять нельзя. Зачем? Вы же в курсе, что если выбрано автоопределение, то и языки свапнуть нельзя - а значит эта функция становится совершенно бесполезной. И как итог, вместо того, что бы нажать две комбинации клавиш и получить нужное, нужно еще километр мышкой проехать и тысячу раз потыкать. Зачем? Верните как было. Или дайте возможность задать язык по умолчанию какой нужен, а не какой вам нужен...
  • (2022-07-14) Rohith Sai Mamidi: This was amazing and loved it so much omg I want to use this foreva
  • (2022-06-28) Sue Troupe: This extension is a cool shortcut to YouTube or Gmail.
  • (2022-05-22) Bhushan Ekbote: Best one
  • (2022-05-17) Sơn Nguyễn: Excellent, tks for team
  • (2022-04-28) Sean Wilkes: I gave it a 3 because it is really slow for Messages. I spend a lot of time just waiting in order to send a text. This is my only complaint. Other than that, it works as advertised.
  • (2022-04-27) Mahmoud Sayed: Nice ex
  • (2022-04-27) Mohamed Anan: Very Good, But It's not safe, Simply it require to give FULL ACCESS to Google accounts such as read,edit,remove files,emails,..etc.
  • (2022-03-04) The Myth: So far no problem. i like it a lot.
  • (2022-01-29) Emilio H. Rojo: It's a great extension, very usefull! But it would be AMAZING if you could add support for chats on facebook, whatsapp, instagram and discord. That would make it truly perfect!
  • (2022-01-16) Jason Tie: This is what I needed and use all the time. I am 9 years old.
  • (2022-01-14) ユーザー情報: 機能自体は便利なんだけども、更新がある度に勝手に新しいタブで白くてまぶしい画面を開いてくるのをやめてほしい。真っ白い画面が嫌いで全部ダークにしているにもかかわらず、この拡張機能が問答無用でギラギラのまぶしい画面を開いてくるのは非常に迷惑。これのためだけに機能を削除しようか迷っている
  • (2022-01-01) Second Life Around: AMAZING!!! Literally the ONLY solution I've found for anyone who's a Google VOICE user.....THANK YOU SO MUCH!! This Extension is a MUST HAVE for anyone with a Google account. - JR
  • (2021-12-06) Дима Гончаров???: Классное, крутое и удобное расширение!!!
  • (2021-12-01) Azkinyte: bro this extension is absolutely amazing. How come google never thought of this? I can literally open any google app I want without having to leave my current tab. It's all right there and easily accessible AND the apps load much much much faster than when you open it through the website. For example, Gmail takes forever to load when opening through the website but it loads up in just a few seconds in this extension. Same goes for the other apps. You are the man, man! Loved it and I'm glad I found this extension. Kudos and keep up the great work pal!
  • (2021-11-29) Carlos Misael Morales Perez: Me encantó, solo que no aparecen los links para las clases de classroom.
  • (2021-11-19) Aditya ghosh: This is the best you can obtain from this webstore. best best best
  • (2021-11-06) Ihsan: btul
  • (2021-11-02) Med & Mlijeko: I am using the Black Menu extension for quite some time and it makes my life so much easier. One of my main usages is translation and I can not stress enough how convenient it is to have the translate option on a right click. BUT (always a but :)) it would be HEAVEN if once selected language would stay chosen. Perhaps I didn't find the option to mark a default language and if so, please let me know. Otherwise, this is one user oriented extension that is just as essential to my day to day computer usage as the mouse itself. 5 star to the sky!
  • (2021-10-30) Samir Nayib Ruza: Esta es la mejor extensión que me facilita el trabajo
  • (2021-10-24) Tyler Kirk: I absolutely love this extension, but ultimately had to remove and revert back to another similar extension due to the inability to add custom non-Google shortcuts in this one. I really hated to move back, because the quality and functionality of this extension is superior in EVERY way and wanted this to be the end-all-be-all of Google-focused shortcut extensions, but this just won't have the same functionality I need until we are able to add true custom shortcuts, not just the more niche Google services. Pleeeease add this to the roadmap if you have the time; I will happily and quickly jump back if this is changed.
  • (2021-10-24) Jing Li: I love this extension. Very convenient to use Google products!
  • (2021-10-20) Kamil: jedynie czego brakuje to google home ale tak to świetne narzędzie
  • (2021-10-11) Shawn Green: A decent darkmode theme.
  • (2021-10-11) Alek Lekin: I would love this extension, but I am still not convinced that developer is not able to collect private data. Convince me, please? Are you not able to do that or you are just stating you wont and we should trust you?
  • (2021-10-10) Mikichugs: esta muy bueno
  • (2021-10-04) Aymeric peten: This extension is something I never knew I wanted. I even installed it thinking "it's a cool idea". Oh boy is this thing a good idea! And well executed at that! It's so logical have those small google service accessible on the side! (google keep, find my device, calendar and Gmail are those I use the most) I don't have anything groundbreaking to say to endorse it, other than it should be a native option. kudos to the developer(s): it works so well, and I simply want to say thank you. (and If you find the will/way to get Ymusic work, it would be awesome). Well that's about it. Thanks again!

  • (2014-11-27, v:8.0.0) André Altmann: Failed Bookmarks Links
    when i open a bookmark from blackmenu, it adds to the url some sort of extra: for example: http://www.deviantart.com/ adds this: &usd=2&usg=AFQjCNH6fX3ywCH2Q62cXGEPvCr4CNohTw or: http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf4/de/ adds this: &usd=2&usg=AFQjCNFqTIwYkTV3BDJB14c2VSzOjd0CZQ from google bookmarks the links works just fine but blackmenu links leads to nirvana. pls fix
