Google app now lets you talk to Hodor. Guess how he responds.

An update to the Google search app for iOS and Android lets you communicate with the lovable strongman from HBO's "Game of Thrones."

Hodor? HODOR! Hodor. Hodor. Hodor. Hodor. HBO

Are you bummed that Hodor won't be Hodoring around Season 5 of HBO's "Game of Thrones" in 2015? Fret not, an update to the Google search app for iPhone and Android will let you connect 24/7 with him.

Starting Wednesday, Android and iOS users can simply say "Hodor" into the Google search app, and the service will respond with a hearty "HODOR!" Just imagine being able to get Hodor's take on the events that go down in Westeros and Essos like he's right there Hodoring around the living room with you.

Google is also adding a few non-Hodor actions to its updated app. You can now ask Google to flip a coin or roll a die, and Google will do just that. (Unfortunately, you can only roll a six-sided die.) And, if you're perpetually in the doghouse in your relationship like I am, you can ask Google to feed you a love quote, which you can then use to impress/win over/woo your sweetie.

The update to the Google app is set to go live around 10 a.m. PT. If it doesn't, just go ahead and shout "HODOR!" at your phone until it shouts back.

If you really want to go full Hodor, you can also download the Yo, Hodor! app for iOS and the Hodor Keyboard app for Android. Because Hodor.
