10 Google Home Easter eggs to try

Smart Home
All work and no play makes a dull smart speaker. And while Google Home has a quickly growing list of features and capable services it still knows how to have a good time. Here are some fun Easter eggs to try with your Google Home speaker. While they're pretty corny and they're definitely not the funniest around, Google Home has quite a few jokes to tell. All you have to say is your wake word and then say something like, make me laugh or tell me a joke. Okay, here you go. Did you hear about the new anti-gravity book? Apparently, you can't put it down. You can also play interactive multiplayer games with Google Home. If you wanna play a trivia game show, just say, OK Google, are you feeling lucky? Nice, this is the part where the music starts and I get to be a game show host. [MUSIC] Welcome to are you feeling lucky? The game show that keeps you guessing. Google home also has the ability to sing a song or beat box. To say hi google beatbox. Okay put your hands together for MC sound files. [MUSIC] Sing happy birthday. Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you. Google Home is also pretty good about staying up to date on pop culture. You can say things like Hodor, or Wubba Lubba Dub Dub. Hodor, Hodor, Hodor, Hodor, Hodor. It also won't choose sides between a great rivalry, such as Star Wars and Star Trek. OK Google, do you like Star Wars or Star Trek? The Millennium Falcon flown by Captain Jean-Luc Picard. And finally there are a lot of random things that Google Home can do such as settling a disagreement or making a decision for you by flipping a coin or rolling a die. Or you can have it Have it tell you a totally random fact by saying hey google surprise me. This fact might surprise you. According to Wikipedia White Beaked dolphins love to ride the waves of high speed boats. Jumping clear of ocean surface to perform acrobatic tricks. And you can also have it play animal sounds if you want to mess with your pets. Say hey Google, bark like a dog. This is a dog. [NOISE] In typical Google fashion there's a very long list of Easter Eggs for Google Home, many of which most likely haven't even been discovered yet so don't be afraid to ask a question about your favorite show or just the first thing that comes to your mind.
