We are pleased to announce the Google Cloud Console mobile app for Android and iOS (coming soon). This app provides an easy way to manage your Google Cloud Platform resource from your mobile device.
The app lets you see the overall health of your system, view your projects, set alerts, keep an eye on billing, and monitor and take action on Google Cloud Platform resources.

For Google Compute Engine VMs, you can monitor CPU usage, disk, and network status. You can even restart VMs or SSH into them (Android only) to perform system level tasks. You can also respond to incidents, so your team knows you’re on top of the issue:
