This is the homepage for Google playground; which is basically a collection of entertaining things to do with various Google services.
"What do you love?" is the first on the list for Google Playground, and it's really useful because it will allow you to search across all Google tools for what you love. Just type in your keyword like you would for a regular search.
The next screen that pops up will show you all of the results on Google for what you love. Results range from blogs about that topic to YouTube videos.
Google Search Stories is a tool that you can use to create a YouTube video out of Google Searches based around a specific topic. For example, here I chose to tell the search story of Harrisonburg/p>
I just entered in a few different keywords that helped describe WHSV (Shenandoah Valley, Harrisonburg and Staunton). You will need at least four keywords to continue.
When you are finished entering in all of your words, click the "Next" button.
The next screen that appears will allow you to choose the soundtrack to your search story. To hear each music clip, click on the number.
When you find the soundtrack that you like, make sure it is highlighted and click "Next" again.
The final page will allow you to preview your creation before publishing it. If you do not like what you see, you can click either the "Edit Story" or "Change Music" button to tweak the features you want to change.
When you are satisfied with your story, click the "Upload to YouTube" button.
This will automatically upload your video to your YouTube page for you to share. For example, here is the video I just created through this tutorial.
