Manage Google Cloud Platform on the go with Cloud Console for Android

By Brian Goldfarb

Imagine being away from your desk and receiving automatic alerts when an issue occurs in your Google App Engine app. Or waiting at the airport and stopping your test VMs before leaving for vacation. With the beta launch of Cloud Console for Android, managing Google Cloud Platform from your phone or tablet is possible (and yes, an iOS version is in the works).

With just a few taps you can quickly glance at the status of your solution, set up alerts, manage your Cloud Platform resources and access Google Cloud Monitoring performance and health graphs.

Get it now from the Google Play Store.

Quickly view app status

Want to determine the status of your solution with just a quick glance? Customize the home page with your personal selection of monitoring graphs, a billing estimate or Cloud Platform service status information.

Get alerts and manage incidents

Want to be told when something goes wrong, for example when your Google Compute Engine instances rise above their expected load of 50% CPU for one hour? Cloud Console for Android integrates with Cloud Monitoring, enabling automated incident tracking when system metrics deviate. You can configure alerts to display directly in the Android notification drawer, and you can comment so that your team knows you’re working on the issue.

View App Engine and Compute Engine properties and make quick changes

When investigating an issue, you often need to check the health and properties of your resources, such as running state, zone or IP. The app supports viewing details and monitoring graphs for App Engine and Compute Engine instances. You can also invoke a number of core operations, such as changing the App Engine version or starting/stopping a Compute Engine instance.

Get started now

The app is available in the Google Play Store, just search for Cloud Console. For tips on how to configure the app, take a look at this quick guide.

Feedback wanted

Cloud Console for Android is currently in beta, and an iOS app is expected to launch later this year. Over the coming months, we’ll continue to add new features and resolve issues. To influence our future work, please send your feedback, ideas and suggestions to [email protected]!
