When you use Google, it is usually to find some kind of information for work or for personal reason. However, the Google search engine is full of surprise you probably did not know to exist. There are games, but not only. So next time you go on it or whenever you’ll have some free time on your hands, try one of these sixteen fun things to do on Google.
Cool things to do on Google:
Want to see if you are having a lucky day? How about trying your hand at Spinner? Type “spinner” in the search box. Once the game appears, pick a number then spin the wheel. Did you get it right? No? Try again. You can do it as long as you feel like you are finally getting some luck, until the first time you get it right, or simply until you get bored!
Depending on your age, you may or may not know the game Atari Breakout. Although it is quite basic, it is also very addictive. Type “Atari Breakout” in the search box and you’ll be ready to play. If you have anything urgent to do, this might not be the best time to try this. You’ll see time fly when you get on it…
Well, this one needs no introduction to anyone. A classic of classics, you can start paying once you have typed Pacman in the search box.
Now this one is wild! When you type Zerg Rush in the search box and you find this game, you’ll see a bunch of o’s descend on your search page and eat the results… unless you can stop them first. If you can’t live without your search results, then this game is for you.
You think Google is a serious guy? That’s because you haven’t found yet all the little jokes it has created online for you to discover. This is one of them. Type anagram in your search box and see what happens. And no, we are not giving you a clue.
Here’s another one! This one could go indefinitely. If you type the word recursion, Google will ask you “Did you mean recursion?”And if you click on it again… he’ll ask again… We told you: Funny guy!
You want to know what Google thinks of gravity? Type Google Gravity in the search box and see what happens to your screen. Don’t ever say Google is not trying really hard to make you smile…
Maybe you should do a few of these tips on different days, or else, you’ll start thinking someone at Google has lost his mind. When you type “Do a barrel roll” in the search box, well, what do you think will happen? Check it out for yourself!
You’ll get another completely wild screenshot with “askew.”Once typed in the search box, you’ll find the results are not on a straight line, but moving with the flow of water. Yeah, you read right: the flow of the water…
Google ‘Askew‘ and you’ll find the screen at an angle when it gives you the results.
Use Google to Decide or Play a Game
You and your friends need to decide who will choose the movie to watch tonight? Type “Flip a coin”, choose your sides and see who won! If you lost your dice for any game, you can also use Google’s by typing “roll a dice.”
Super Mario Bros
If you are a fan of Super Mario Bros, you can actually play it on Google. However, in this particular case (unlike the previous points), you will need to be using Chrome to navigate the internet. Hours of fun ahead of you!
Do you remember what the Google search engine looked like back in 1998? Were you even born back then? One way or another, you can still found out about Google’s past look by clicking in the search book “Google 1998.” It will bring you back in time, and you’ll be able to use the old version for your new searches.
Blink Google Blink
If you want some action on your screen, type Blink HTML and see what Google does with the term on the screen.
Google’s Animal Voices
If you want to hear any animal sound, try typing “What sound does a dog make? (or any other animal) And Google will let you listen in.
“Lumos” and “Nox”
This one needs a little more than just a Google search box. You need to download the mobile app in Google Play. If you go and look for Harry Potter spells from the book/movie (Prisoner of Azkaban) by typing Lumos or Nox, well, it will let you use the spell! Try it!
