How to Contact YouTube, Gmail and Other Google Properties.
Google owns a number of web resources such as YouTube, Gmail, Maps, Drive, Android, and others. Each of these services spawned an entire industry. They became a brand. So if you want to connect with YouTube, for example, it’s best to do so from YouTube, not Google.
Google only has customer support for paid services like AdWords, Google Apps for Work, Google Pixel, etc. However, for free services like Gmail, YouTube, Google Play apps, etc., they rely on forums where you can request support from Google experts and other users for your concern.
Since Google’s web resources are used by billions of people, chances are that your question has already been answered in some forum. So, for each site / service, I’ll share some links to help and troubleshooting pages before showing you how to contact a representative, if there is a way.
Let’s take a look at how you can contact Google-owned sites and services if you need help.
Note. Here is a link to the google status bar that shows which google service is down. Check it out once to figure it out.
How to connect to YouTube
Before contacting YouTube, be sure to check out their help center, chances are you’ll find answers to some of the most common questions asked multiple times.
If you believe someone has copied your copyrighted work and posted it to YouTube without permission, you are filing a copyright infringement complaint here.
There are separate pages where you can report abuse and file a privacy complaint.
If you need to send an email to YouTube as a YouTube author, for example, to receive a confirmation badge or request a personalized URL for your channel, etc.; just scroll down to any page on YouTube (as long as you’re signed in to your channel account) and click Help. In the new pop-up window, click Need more help? Get support for authors Select the appropriate category Email support .
Note. With over a billion monthly active users, you might not get a response to your email. You can fax them, but use this option only if it is urgent or important.

How to contact Gmail
Gmail changed the way you use and access mail forever, while destroying Yahoo mail. Offers an unheard of storage space at the time. Here are some ways to contact Gmail support and resolve issues.
You can find answers to the most common questions in the Google Help Center. In addition, there is a great Gmail help forum that is maintained by the Google community and moderators. Use the search function or open a new topic.
If you still can’t find a solution using the links above, for example, your mail isn’t delivering or Gmail isn’t working, you can send feedback to the Gmail team using your browser or mobile app. Scroll to the bottom of the left pane of your Gmail account and click the Help & Feedback button.
How to connect to Android
As with all other Google products, there is no direct way to contact the Android team. There is an Android Help Center where you can find answers to all your common questions.
If you’re an Android developer, you probably already know about a dedicated developer site that is regularly updated to reflect what’s going on with the mobile OS.
Let’s say you are having problems with the library or the app you downloaded from the Play Store is not running yet, you can contact Android, but this is somewhat limited if you want to contact a direct company representative.
How to contact AdWords
Google AdWords, a platform that allows advertisers to bid on keywords to determine which ads appear in search results, is no different. But because it is a business product that is Google’s main source of income, it offers additional ways to get support.
If something is broken or needs repair, you can ask the AdWords team to fix it here. All API related questions are discussed in this Google group.
As an advertiser or AdWords partner, your money is at stake, and in some cases you may need help. Are your ads only showing on mobile devices? Campaigns are not working as expected. You can file an AdWords complaint directly.
Be sure to include your AdWords ID when contacting support, otherwise this will only increase response times.
Here are the two support numbers I was able to find:
For the United States: 1-844-252-8611 (available Monday through Friday, 9:00 am to 9:00 pm ET)
How to connect to Chrome
There is Chrome for business users and there is Chrome for everyone else. The Help Center will answer your most common questions. But if you are a corporate customer (paying) and are facing an issue such as GSuite integration error or the browser won’t connect to the managed network server, you can submit a message using the contact form.
How to contact Google Maps
The Help Center will answer all your questions, and the forum is for both Google Maps and Earth products. If you swipe from left to right on your smartphone, there are options for getting help and submitting feedback.
How to contact Google Analytics
Since Google Analytics is also targeted at advertisers, there are more ways to contact them and get help. At times, you may feel that the data metrics you see are inaccurate, or that you have a problem with self-referrals.
A form is available, after submitting which you will receive a quick response or a phone call, depending on the nature of the problem.
Analytics has several verified and certified partners. If you are working with one of them, you can request assistance from them on the Partner Solution help page.
Conclusion: How to connect to YouTube and other Google features
The reason there is no direct way to contact Google for various services and products is because billions of people use Google on a daily basis. People will call for every small and big problem without first looking for answers. There are ways to connect where needed.
