Google uses homepage to promote its apps to Android and iOS users

Google Homepage

However, with the holidays wrapping up, Google is taking aim at the new Android or iOS users around the world by giving them direct access to its plethora of apps on both app stores. A short message on its homepage, including Google Canada, states, “Unwrap the best of Google for Android and iOS,’ which is redirected to Google Play and Apple’s App Store.
