You're probably familiar with all of the practical things your Google Assistant can do. It can create a to-do listset reminders for youorder your groceries and make phone calls, but Google's digital assistant can also help you have fun. 

If Google is known for one thing, it's sprinkling Easter eggs throughout its products. Like the Alexa voice assistant on Amazon's smart devices or Siri for Apple devices, Google Home's voice assistant has an expansive list of Easter eggs and it's only going to grow from here. Easter eggs may seem silly or like a waste of time, but they sometimes help the speaker seem less creepy and, in a sense, more natural.

Since Google Home is powered by Google Assistant, many of these Easter eggs will work on Google Pixel smartphones as well as in the Allo app. For more Google Home commands, check out our comprehensive list and the seven Google Nest commands you should be using every day.
