Google Adds Couple of Playable Games in Its Search Engine

August 27, 2016, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Google Doodle is not just the only way for you to add a bit of flair when Googling things. The search engine has now presented a new way for players to get interactive with the search window, this time in the form of playable games.

Google is now letting users play games when searching for them in the search engine. Currently, two new games are available, which are Tic-Tac-Toe and Solitaire. Just Google them and the search result window will have the game popped up right on top of the search results.

Users can also adjust minor settings within the tab, like adjusting the difficulty level in Tic-Tac-Toe, turning off sound, restarting the game when running out of move etc. Also, users can play against someone sitting beside you if you don’t want any AI to come on top of you.


The games will be playable on the search engine through web, as well as through Google Now app, where the process for enabling the game is the same. Apart from the two games, Google has also introduced a feature to flip a coin, which users can get by typing coin flip. SO never mind if you are out of coins when making a decision, just Google it.

The new additions don’t offer any big gameplay experience. But it still reflects the search engine giants’ desire to make the home space much more interactive, including more than just search results. Google has previously offered many direct accessible result, like having animal sounds enabled in the search result window. We will now have to see if Google has got any plans to expand the games available.
