When we first hear the word Google, the first image that forms in our mind is that of a know-it-all first bencher. When you are in a problem, his name strikes you in a second. But when you’re having fun, do you remember him? Caught you guilty! To get your guilt over you, I have some less known secrets about Google. You can now become better friends with him by knowing these really cool and fun things Google search can do. The list has some really cool things to do on google.
Here are some really cool things to do on Google:
Too lazy to make yourself a spin wheel? Google offers you spinning wheels of different sizes!
It’s a different feeling altogether- knowing about someone who knows everything. You now have the right to brag about this knowledge so go, share this with your friends and family to leave them amazed!
2. Atari Breakout

4. Zerg rush
If you want to be a “Hero” and not a “Zero”, you must kill all the O’s that will eat up your search results.
Type Zerg rush in the search bar without quotations. And, defend your search page from an onslaught of O’s.
All of us do know what an ‘Anagram’ is. A funny little game, more like a joke, is what we encounter when we type this word into the search bar.
Just type “anagram” and check out the statement “Did you mean:“
Again, it has a different version, you know? Type “Define Anagram” and you’ll see a different statement in “Did you mean:“.
6. Google teaches you Recursion
We first encounter this word in “C Programming”. Familiar with some of us, right?
Type “Recursion” on google search bar without the quotations and you’ll find “Did you mean: Recursion” although the word you typed has no spelling error.
It’s Google’s way of showing a loop on loop, which is the exact definition of recursion.
7. Google Gravity
Show this to a kid and he’ll be way more excited than you would be, especially if he just learned the concept of gravity in school! You enjoy while Google’s life falls apart
Type Google Gravity and click I’m feeling lucky.
8. Barrel Roll
This one is for those who are sitting on their desks all day long and are bored to death.
Type Do a barrel roll and watch your friend’s life take a roll.
Google ‘Askew‘ and you’ll find the screen at an angle when it gives you the results.
10. Let Google decide
Ask Google to Roll a Die or flip a coin when you are in double-minds. And you now know why not to worry when you lose your dice next time for Ludo.
11. Super Mario Bros
Who isn’t a Mario fan? We all miss him dearly. So, Google decided to do something as a tribute to this game which is the best memory of many childhoods. Search Super Mario Bros. and go to the right side result and click on the box to live your past!
12. Google’s Past
Google surprised us by helping us relive our childhood, but did you think about Google’s past? See, again I caught you guilty of being selfish!
Type Google in 1998 and it’ll take you back to its older layout. Click on the first result and you could then search on the older version of Google.
13. Twinkling Google
Most of us live in towns so polluted that seeing twinkling stars is a privilege. However, your friend has a solution to this too! Type Blink HTML or <blink> to watch Google blink for you!
14. Google’s got a voice box!
Type What sound does a dog make and you’ll hear it! Pro tip: try doing the same for a fox and you’ll see (or hear) something different!
15. “Lumos” and “Nox”
Remember the spells Harry used in “Prisoner of Azkaban” in order to hide from Snape? Oh, well! He got caught though. But, Google made these spells of the magical realm real. Even we, the muggles, can use them! But how? Through Google App in your mobile, of course!
Open the app and type “Lumos” in its search bar. Your flashlight automatically glows.
Just type “Nox” and the world turns dark.
