Life these days is on a fast pace. Whether it's chores, or just getting things checked off your laundry or shopping list, all help is welcome. Turns out, Google now has a new app for that.

Axar.az reports that earlier this week, Google quietly released Areo, a hyper local app that offers "thousands" of services, it says. Users can schedule visits, and pay for the service from within the app. They will also be able to see reviews across these services to make an informed decision, the app description adds.

The aggregator, first spotted by FactorDaily, is currently live only in two busy Indian cities – Bangalore and Mumbai. Available on Google Play, there's no web client, or iPhone app for Areo just yet.

It will be interesting to watch how the arrival of Areo benefits the existing app ecosystem in India tailored to serve local needs. With Areo, Google is offering a platform that local services such as UrbanClap, Swiggy, Zomato, and Freshmenu could make use of. As of today, however, only a handful of such services are listed on the app.

Though the company remains mysteriously quiet about Areo, it may have plans to grow this app beyond India. During his recent visit to the country, company CEO Sundar Pichai had mentioned India being the testbed for several of Google services.
