Google has started something new to bring even more users over. You are able to play solitaire or tic-tac-toe when you search for it. The playable result will come along with the online results that you may have initially been looking for.

If you go do it right now, it will display the games easily right at the top. You'll be able to pick your difficulty level. If you choose tic-tac-toe, you'll be able to play the person sitting next to you or you can play Google's AI. The company also enabled the ability to flip a coin simply by typing in "coin flip."

The solitaire game is extremely fun, but a little difficult to see, so you might want to turn up your zoom. Tic-tac-toe is simplistic and basic, but a great way to kill time.

In addition to the cool games, there are some other cool Easter Eggs in there, including the ability to type in "What does a cat sound like?" which will lead to an audio result and a list of other animals. Hopefully that list will get longer because the feature is actually pretty cool.

This isn't the first time that Google has pulled out games, of course. The company just recently had some fun Rio and Olympic-themed games during the Olympic run. They also had a really interesting Rubik's Cube game back in 2014.

At the end of the day, the question is whether or not the games are worth it for other companies. It may have improved usage for Google itself, but other companies paid the price. Google released Pac Man Google Doodle in 2010, and according to some estimates, it lost over 5 million hours of productivity for the economy.
