The Google Product Experts Program is about recruiting volunteer tech enthusiasts to facilitate discussions, and answer questions about using Google Products in the Google Help Communities. Note it is not about becoming employed by Google. Yes, it does look good to have this program listed on a resume. If you go above and beyond by blogging and creating YouTube Tutorials, it may reap some rewards. Other than that, you receive swag as a gift of appreciation. So if you don’t mind having a closet full of T-shirts and other items embellished with their logo, this may be a program for you. You can also obtain badges for various levels due to points earned.

The badge levels provide perks such as a private area to discuss the product. It puts you in the know of potential updates. However, you are under NDA, which means no product discussions outside the specific product group. You may get to do some beta testing. Beta testing doesn’t necessarily mean testing a device. Most of the time the beta test is focused on testing potential APP updates.

I had an opportunity to beta test a physical device. The item was shipped back to Google upon completion of the beta test. So, if you like being in the know and helping others, then the Google Product Experts Program may be for you.
