Google has consistently come through with some pretty entertaining April Fools jokes throughout the years that tease fantasy products or hilarious new features. This year, they are at it once again with one of the best April Fools jokes you will see all year.
For their 2019 prank, Google managed to incorporate the vintage game Snake into its Google Maps app.
“Google Maps shows you how to get around on foot, car, train and bicycle, and now, you can ssslither to your destination too,” Omar Abdelaziz, Product Manager of Google Maps, said in a statement. “Starting today, you can play a twist on the snake game in different locations across the world—including Cairo, London, San Francisco, São Paulo, Sydney, and Tokyo—right from Google Maps.”
Here is how Snake will look inside of the app:Google
Accessing the Easter Egg is pretty simple:
To start playing, simply open the Google Maps app, tap on the menu icon on the top left corner, then select “Play Snake” to get your daily dose of 90s nostalgia (boy bands, fanny packs and slap bracelets not included).
Once you’ve selected a city, start picking up as many passengers as you can as your train travels around the world—stopping everywhere from Big Ben, the Great Sphinx of Giza to the Eiffel Tower. But make sure you don’t run off the map (or into yourself)!
If you really have an itch to get some more Snake in your life, you can simply head on over to Google’s standalone site to get your fix. Happy April Foolsss Day, everyone.
