Google has started a program using short how-to videos to pass along tips and tricks about using Google Places effectively. The videos star Professor Emoji, and will help you rate and review places on the go, add friends, and more. The first video, posted today, deals specifically with using Google Places with an Android phone.
They're a bit kitschy, and maybe something you don't really need a video to help understand, but remember -- some of today's 400,000 new activated phone's users just might. We're glad to see Google making Android a bit more new-user friendly, and Professor Emoji looks like a nice friendly front man. You can check out today's lesson after the break.
