Google is using Robot for most of their products. It's free to use:
Google is (or was) using Robot for most of their products. It’s free to use and similar to Product Sans:

Google Sans / Product Sans is for Google-branded products, so I don't think you can get a licence for it. Roboto on the other hand is free to use as Sammy said

Yes, Roboto is free to use but I don't think you can use Google Sans as it is licensed for Google products only.

I think Manrope comes pretty close, if you're looking for something free. (And even beside that it's a pretty great typeface and one of my current favorites) --> Manrope
if you want to spend some money this would be a good choice I think "Gilroy"

There are few similar like Manrope , Montserrat, Metropolis, Objectivity etc. But Google Sans has a different feel altogether , which I cudn't find with any other font yet.

I'm happy to spend on a font thats closest

Gliroy, Futura and Relish

I just came across this relatively new open-source typeface that makes a great alternative: +Jakarta Sans
