Before we head over to Google tricks first let’s know something about Google. Google has always been a part of lives for the majority of internet users around the world. This is due to many reasons, firstly Google is the most popular search engine which is used by many people to solve their day to day queries. And queries can be anything ranging from general questions to errors related to any type of programming language.
Furthermore, other search engines are also present and they are Microsoft Bing and Yahoo. Coming back to the Google search engine, when we talk about searches that happen in Google, the number is quite large. And it processes 63,000 search queries every second. When we calculate this amount for a day then it will be equal to 5.6 billion searches per day. And this figure is quite enough to prove my above-mentioned point.
Google also offers many products and services for a variety of users like Gmail, Google Maps, Google Earth, Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google slides and so on. And most probably you have used any of these services so I don’t feel the need to explain all those.
Let’s now talk about amazing tricks that you can perform on google search to impress your friends. So without any further delay let’s get into this.
Amazing Google Fun Tricks List:
There are in total 14 tricks on this list to wow your known ones and they are:
This is the most fun and amazing trick. To perform this trick you have to simply go to Google.com and type “do a barrel roll”. But wait nothing will happen till now. So to see the magic after typing the keywords you have to either press enter on the keyboard or you have to click on the search icon. And after that, the Google page will rotate once and will come to the initial state like it was before.
If you have never played the real old classic game Atari Breakout from the ’90s, then this is your best chance. Unfortunately, this game has been removed from Google search. However, you can get access to the game from elgooG. When you scroll down the page you will see google images transforming into the blocks. And then you can play the game. Usually, the game can be controlled easily by mouse movements or direction keys on the keyboard. And don’t forget to put your highest score in the comments below.
Askew is one among many other Google tricks. What happens in this trick when you go to the google search bar and type askew. And after that when you will press enter, nothing will happen much but in fact, the google search page will tilt a slight. However, it is fun to see the Google search page tilted.
If you have ever done programming with any language I bet you have come across this term recursion. So in a nutshell this trick is for the IT guys out there. First of all, let us know the meaning of the term recursion. Recursion in short means something that repeats itself again and again.
This meaning fits well on the google search. So when you type recursion and hit enter at first the result will come up with the definition of recursion. Also above the definition, you will see the “Did you mean” part. And when you click on the link of that part the same result will come up again. So overall this thing will go again and again and ultimately you can relate this to the term recursion.
This one is my favourite google trick. In this when you will type “Google Gravity” on the google home page and after that when you will click I’m feeling lucky. The thing that happens after that is every component on the google search homepage, will fall down. Furthermore, Google’s logo also falls down the bottom of the screen.
And the magical thing is that it will give you the feeling of gravity on that page. And this justifies its name, also you can play with the individual elements with a mouse cursor that can throw any component literally anywhere on the screen. But one thing I must say is that on the page you will feel problems in navigating as the menus are present here and there in pieces.
If you are a marvel fan, then this trick will make you very happy. To see this trick in action first go to elgooG and then click on “Thanos snap trick“. Once you are on the search results page head over to Villian’s biography on the right-hand side. There you will see the “Gauntlet” icon just click on that and you will see results will start disintegrating on your screen.
In this trick you will see many ‘o’ coming from the top side of the screen. All these ‘o’ will slowly and slowly eat up search results actually it’s fun to watch this. To see the trick work, go to google home page and type “Zerg Rush” and then click on I am feeling lucky. Another way to see this is to go to elgooG (a mirror site of google) and select “Zerg Rush” is that all you have to do.
This is a another cool trick, it enables you to go through the space. With the help of this you can see different celestial objects such as planets, stars, galaxies , Earth’s moon and so on with Google sky.
- The F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Trick:

To activate this trick you will have to give the reference of the character names and after that adding “friends” word. For example you can search like “Monica Friends” or “Ross Friends“. After that you will see a unique icon on the right side of the screen for each character. Atlast, click on the icon to see the magic.
It is not a trick actually but it’s a new feature of Google Earth that I found interesting and worth sharing. It will show you the timelapse of the changes that happened over the span of 37 years. You can use this to see the melting of ice in Antartica, deforestation in the forest and so on.
If you are searching for some funny stuff on Google then search for animal sounds on Google. You will find the list of animals on the results. So to hear their corresponding sounds click on the volume icon present near to the name.
