To help people get the most out of Ramadan, Google put together a Ramadan hub google.com/ramadan with information on how Google products like YouTube, Maps, Hangouts, Google+, Keep and Play can help people enjoy the holiday with friends and family without worrying about their time and schedule.

The hub will give people information based on their location, like a popular cooking show on YouTube or their local countdown to sunset. Users can also easily access tools to plan their days, from scheduling appointments on their Calendar to creating a shopping list on Google Keep to refer to when at the supermarket buying ingredients.

For those away from home who can’t make it to Iftar, it’s easy to start a Hangouts session and break their fast with family or friends. Or if they’re traveling to see their loved ones in person, Google Maps can determine the fastest route to their destination, along with convenient stops for restaurants and mosques on the way.

Google has also collected a variety of YouTube videos and Hangouts On Air to give people new ideas for celebrating, like cooking shows CBC Sofra , Saudi cartoon Masameer, do-it-yourself channels like E- Keif or comedy like Muftah Engleezy. Users can also find Ramadan-related apps on Google Play that offer special recipes for Iftar or Suhour.
