The Google Cloud mobile app is a powerful tool that can help you troubleshoot and manage your cloud applications from anywhere. With the app, you can quickly and easily check the status of your resources, view billing details, and take action on issues.

The app is available for iOS and Android devices, and it's free to download. To get started, simply sign in with your Google Cloud credentials.


Keep an eye on your environment

With the Google Cloud mobile app, you can easily monitor the status and access services such as the Compute Engine, App Engine, Cloud Storage and Cloud SQL. You can also track the health of your services over time with monitoring uptime checks directly in the mobile app, that can further inform your SLAs and SLOs.


On top of managing and monitoring cloud services, you can also manage permissions using IAM, view logs, and manage your billing in the Google Cloud mobile app.


Production alerting

You can view and manage incidents, and be alerted right on your Android or iOS device anytime there is a production issue in your application. With Error Reporting you can then quickly understand the issue, triage it, and bring in your team to help.


You can also view latency trace data Cloud Trace, where the Analysis Reports in Cloud Trace inspects requests made to your application and shows you an overall view of the latency for requests.


Troubleshooting on-the-go

The Google Cloud mobile app helps you to take action and address issues directly from your mobile device, anytime and anywhere. For example, suspending, stopping or restarting a VM, searching logs, connecting to a VM via SSH or using any gCloud (CLI) commands to do even more.
