You can also share these collections with family and friends natively. Shared collections can not only be viewed by others but you can also allow them to collaborate and make changes.  But before you use its different functions, where do you access Google Collections.

  1. Just what I was looking for – thank you 🙂

  2. Thank you. I found this quite helpful. Following along with this, however, I discovered that Google Collections is also a Chrome app. You can find it on the “Apps button” (the third button on the top left of the Chrome home screen). I don’t know if it’s there when you’re not signed in, though. It would be nice if you could check that out and also post a tutorial to it here. Thanks again.

  3. This feature could be useful except the means for accessing it are arcane, as if Google doesn’t care about anyone using the feature.

    From a usability standpoint, wherever something can be added to Collections there should be an obvious way to access Collections. This is so obvious to a system designer that it looks like Google’s only ral interest is mining Collections to build more detailed user profiles. Every time you add something, you essentially opt in to Google knowing more about you.

    At a minimum Collections should be on the webpage 9-dots menu. That is still arcane but at least it’s where it could be found on any platform.

    Google blogger should let their readers know that once they have the Collections webpage open, they can add it to the Bookmarks bar and they can also make a shortcut on the home page or desktop of any platform.

  4. Why is my Google Collections not Working? It says “You do not have access to this source”! To access ask your Google Administrator! And I am wondering what that means? Can you help me please? I am having trouble!
