Google AndroidWell, Google’s actually trying to make sure people do find the right droids, Androids. That is, the Internet giant is ensuring people looking for Android phones score the right one for them. It’s not a complicated process and only takes a few minutes, but a new website launched by Google means people should be able to find the phone that suits all their needs.

The site leads visitors through a number of questions with some having multiple answers and others requiring a simple click. Once the questions are answered and the user explains what they will be using their phone for the most the site gives a handful of options that will, likely, best meet the criteria presented.

Users can also select their carrier – likely whittling down the options available – or skip that part and simply see what phones are out there for them.

It’s a simple process and takes little time. The webpage is extremely user-friendly and doesn’t require any commitment to actually purchase a phone.

So, why is Google doing it?

Time noted the site might be the company’s way of addressing the growing number of phones on the market that rely on the Android system. Apple, though, has left its iOS to its own line of phones and tablets.
