Just when you thought there weren’t already enough distractions online to keep you from doing anything even remotely meaningful with your life, Google has just added the option to play the classic games solitaire and tic-tac-toe in Google Search.
No matter if you are using Google on your desktop or from a mobile, all you need to do to is search either “tic-tac-toe” or “solitaire” and the games will appear.
When playing solitaire, Google lets you choose between diffulticul level: easy or hard. Start by selecting which level you want to play and the game will begin.
While tic-tac-toe or X and O’s as it is also known is a much easier game to play, it does have three difficulty levels: easy, medium and impossible.
Or let Google help you settle a bet by searching for “flip a coin”.
This isn’t the first time Google has hidden games in one of its products.
You may not know but there is a game hidden in Google Chrome that you can play whenever you lose internet connection.
If your desktop or mobile is struggling to connect to Wifi or mobile data is tap on the little T-Rex or press the spacebar and a game will load that should help you pass the time until your connection is restored.
The game is very simple but very addictive and helps with the frustration of not being able to access the web.
