Are you bored at work and really looking something to kill off some time before the day ends? Well, Google Search has something right just for you.
Beginning today, users of Google Search can easily start and play a game of Solitaire or Tic-Tac-Toe, which is otherwise known as noughts and crosses in other regions such as the UK, right from their web browsers. The good side of the story is that these two games can be played from the Google Search mobile or PC platform. All you need is to search for the name of the game and there you are!
Once you input the name of the game and start a search, the game will automatically appear with an option to start playing immediately. You can even pick the difficulty levels of your choice depending on how good you get at playing the games. Furthermore, there is room to play with another player seated next to you.
Other than the two games, Google Search has also received some other interactive updates that are not so obvious. When you type “flip a coin” in Google Search, the search results will come with a box on top displaying a spinning coin. Eventually, the coin will land on either heads or tails. In short, the search engine giant wants to save you the hassles of looking for a coin just in case you are stuck between making a decision. All you need is turn to Google Search and type in the necessary phrase.
In case you are wondering what sounds certain animals produce, Google Search has also incorporated a feature that lets you find out more about the same. When you type something like “What does a cow sound like?” the result will come back in audio format, with a short list other animals as well. According to a Google blog post, the addition of these features is meant to add more fun to Google Search, which is basically seen as a research tool.
