It also has cons like they didn't offer web hosting in their website and many add on services which are provided by other domain name registrar but it is not available in Google Domains.  Only low price domains with many features is available in Google domains.

So the conclusion is easy to use especially for a beginners and low price domain with no additional cost for privacy protection.  And transferring your domain to Google Domains or to another registrar is also simple and easy.  With 24/7 support and with their new TLDs I prefer Google Domains for a beginner according to my experience of buying domains in Google and using their service for past 3 months.
