Google's Best April Fools’ Day 2017 Pranks
  • Google came up with a number of April fool’s day tricks for year 2017

Here is the list of the best pranks that are offered by Google on April fool’s day 2017

Most tech companies seem to love the concept of April fool’s day. Google is one of the companies that put a lot of effort in pranking people on this day. Instead of coming up with a single prank, they always go with multiple ones. This year is not any different. The company just released a number of pranks that will entertain the users on 1st April. Many of these pretty funny actually and they are paired with some kind of google product. Thus it is clearly possible that you stumble upon one or two this year too.
Here is the list of all the pranks that are introduced by company this year.

Imagine your google map streets turn in to a Pac-man game. Well this is something that you can clearly expect in this year. The company just introduced the feature in which the google maps are turned into an interface like Pac-man where you can actually play the game as well. This feature was introduced once earlier as well. However it is the very first time that it will be introduced in the form of an April fool’s prank. It was pretty popular when it was released back in the year 2015. This might be the reason of its revival.

Google Genome
Who doesn’t like a nice little genome in their garden? Well it looks like Google loves them too. Google introduced a new Genome as a pun a few days back. It has the iconic colors of Google. Dieter Bohn tweeted about the genome that it is a smart genome for every house. It looks fine in the lawn of yours and can tell you about the direction of wind too. It has a built in speaker that tends to emit skeptical comments as well. For instance it will say that “we are all compost” indicating to the fact that every living person has to die and decompose.

Google Assistant
It looks like Google Assistant is off to some mischief as well. It will be better if you don’t ask for assistance for a day or two from this app as you will get puns in reply most of the time. If you are going to ask for some advice you might get a silly kind of advice in response too.

Google Wind
Google wind is the concept of a windmills that will shoo away clouds to shun off rain on Western European’s Parade. It is a machine learning windmill that will blow away the clouds for a day. Google has taken the word cloud themed in the literal way by introducing this joke.

Google’s Bubble Wrap Keyboard
This is a new prank which introduced by Google’s Japanese team. The company brought the concept of Google Kazoo last year. This year they have come up with a new bubble wrap kind of keyboard. The concept that runs in the way that one can push the bubble wrap around the letters that you need to type. The best part is that it will have an option of sending a scented sentence to the reader as well. Thus you will be able to smell the scent of things e.g. like roses when a message is received.

Google VR Haptic Helpers
The last but not the least presented prank by Google is about the VR tech. The Google VR Haptic Helpers will help the people to enjoy features such as aroma, taste and physical sensations through the VR experience. The visual stimuli will be paired with sound to make the experience much better.
