  • Once you have an account, click on this link. Go ahead and click on Go To Console.

  •  A web page should open. On top left corner you will have a drop-down option. It has a default project selected. Click on it to explore more options. 

  • The Web page that appears next, lets you select an existing project which you can by searching in the search tab or can click on the plus sign to add a new one. When you add a new project, first-timers will require to set billing option which is two-step simple process.
