Microsoft did not include snazzy tiles (icons) on the homepage of Windows 8 for Google Search and Chrome. After all, it has a new opportunity to win over new users to Bing and Internet Explorer. But Google isn't standing by.
Google today (Oct. 26) has launched a website to make it easy for Windows 8 users to add Google services to the home screen. The company promises the process will take no more than 2 minutes, and it will make Microsoft's new touch-centric interface more familiar. Even Google's beloved doodles will show up on a Google tile.
And to make it even easier, Google includes instructions in its new video, "Google Wants You Back."
