Fun with Google: We Bet You Didn’t Know These Awesome Google Tricks

As Google Partners we have a lot of respect for the complex and sophisticated world of Google, but did you know Google can also be fun?

In fact, there are a few features on the world’s number one search engine that are completely useless, they serve no function other than to make you smile… here are our top 5:

1. Do a Barrel Roll

Type in ‘do a barrel roll’ in your Google search bar and press enter.. watch your screen turn topsy-turvy as Google literally performs a barrel roll. If your feeling even more adventurous type in ‘do a barrel roll 10 times’!

2. Gravity

Type ‘Google Gravity’ and click on the first link that comes up

Watch as Google collapses to the floor in front of your eyes. Note: you can still type in the search bar!

3. Google Space


If you liked the gravity trick, you’re in for a treat, google ‘Google Space’ and watch your search bar drift around your screen as though it’s on the moon.

4. Pac-Man

Google’s home page on the 21st May 2010 (some of you might remember) was a fully functioning Google Pac-Man game. You can still play this if you type in ‘play Pacman’ and your procrastination for the day is sorted! You are welcome!

5. Atari Breakout

If it’s games you’re after, our favourite is ‘atari breakout’. It uses Google images as the blocks for the world famous game, see if you can complete the first round before your work colleagues!
