I’ve been told that you can’t use Google with Windows 8, is that right??

No, Al that’s not right. You can search Google in Windows 8 or 8.1, use Google Chrome as a browser and access your Gmail and other Google products. There is one grain of truth in there and that’s if you use the built-in search function with Windows 8 or 8.1.

  If you choose to search everywhere or web images or videos, the online search will be made in Bing and that can’t be changed.

But you can still open up a browser and use any Google products or services you please.

Hope that clears things up for you.
