Google Search Console is a tool to verify domain ownership. Some benefits are as follows:
Google guarantees domain indexing (SEO purposes) once an owner is verified. Note: domain verification is not necessary to be indexed by Google, but it is helpful.
Email accounts assoicated with a domain are less likely to be flagged as spam by Gmaill and other emial providers.
GSC tracks the any errors that occur on a domain (Indexing errors, potential hacks, and other web-related errors).
Troubleshoot problems and get improvement advice for mobile usability (when a domain is accessed on a mobile device like an iPhone).
