Cool Google Tricks
Since Google is the most popular search engine in the world, it’s no surprise that most of the human population has used the search giant at one point or another. What most people don’t know is that Google has a few hidden tricks you can access if you know about them. This guide reveals some Google search tricks you can try when you are bored or want to show off to your friends.
The Coin Flip Trick
If you and your friend have ever had a disagreement, you probably solved it using a coin flip. Taking the coin out of the pocket, you flip it into the air and ask your buddy to call heads or tails before it lands. Your friend wins the dispute if he is correct, and you win if he is not. If you want to flip a coin when you don’t have one on hand, the world’s most popular search engine can come to the rescue. Type “flip a coin” into Google’s search bar and press enter to use this trick.
The Pac-Man Trick
When it was first released to the public in the 1980s, Pac-Man was one of the most popular games. Pac-Man’s goal is to make it through the maze and collect the dots while avoiding the ghosts. If you would like to play the game again but don’t have an Atari, you have nothing to fear because Google has your back. Type “Pac-Man” into the search bar to take a trip back in time and play one of the world’s most famous arcade games right from your web browser.

The Do a Barrel Roll Trick
A callback to the 1997 Star Fox 64, Google will spin in a circle when you type “do a barrel roll” into your search bar. Fans of the game and the meme it created were thrilled to discover the hidden gem offered by the world’s leading search engine. If you ever need a way to pass the time and don’t have anything else to do, give this trick a try and see it in action, and you won’t regret it.
The Zero Gravity Trick
The last trick on our list requires you to navigate to Google’s homepage and type “Google gravity” into the search bar. Instead of hitting the standard search button, hit the “I’m feeling lucky” button to activate this trick, and the elements in your webpage will begin floating in all directions. The best part is that the trick won’t go into action until it detects mouse or keyboard input. To prank your friends, you can wait for them to leave their computer for a minute and enter the command before they return.
