The main feature is that you can use goo.gl just by going to the web page. But if you go to http://goo.gl and login with your Google account, you’ll get analytics and history features for the urls you’ve shortened.
The URL Shortener also offers the capability of having short links deep link to content in your mobile apps. In order for this to be enabled, you must integrate with App Indexing for Android and iOS. After integrating, any short link which redirects to a web link that you have provided to Google through App Indexing will open automatically in your native app for your users.
