Add Google Domains DDNS
Google domains (domains.google.com) has added DDNS services outlined here: https://support.google.com/domains/answer/6147083?hl=en
Adding this to the pfsense dynamic dns updater would be a welcome addition to anyone using / will use the service.

I'm aware, but it took a while to figure it out on my own. It would be much simpler to have a menu item of it's own. It's not a priority - just something that would be nice to have in a later release. If I knew programming, and was more familiar with GIT, I'd try doing it myself and submitting it.

https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=86900.0 explains exactly how to do it as well.
I second that it would be incredibly nice to have a 'Google Domains' dropdown in the list.
The biggest actual issue I can see when using 'custom' is that the hostname does NOT display on the 'Dynamic DNS' summary screen.

An issue I see with those instructions on custom dns entries is that it requires your google domains account credentials rather than the username/password generated for your dynamic dns. I'm in the process of getting this working so maybe I'm wrong..
Since this is the basic dyndns service - just hosted by google's dns servers instead of dyndns - it should be a really easy thing to add.
Here are the ddclient config parameters assuming it's the ddclient that doesn't already have google domains support:
I will happily test this in a beta version.

Looks like someone contributed some code for this feature already. How can I test this?
