See All of Google’s April Fool’s Day Pranks

Google April Fool's Pranks
Google

If you’re anything like us, you probably have no idea what day it is. Well, it’s Monday, April 1st. Yes, it’s April Fool’s Day, which means that Google is planning to pull the wool over our eyes all day long. Here are some of the pranks they’re pulling, in case you are super-gullible.


Google Nose

 
 
 

Have you ever wanted to know what an Egyptian tomb smells like? How about Abraham Lincoln? Now you can, thanks to Google Nose. It's kind of like Google Glasses, but for your nose. Try it here.

Gmail Blue

 
 
 

It's exactly the same as regular Gmail, but bluer. Maybe this is one big 'Arrested Development' reference? We're not sure.

Google Treasure Maps

 
 
 

You can team up with the rest of the world to find Captain Kidd's treasure. All you have to do is set your laptop on fire. April Fool's! Don't set your laptop on fire.

Google Cold Trends

Google

Google's hot trends for today seem a little off. Y2K? Pogs? Other trends listed include "Macarena Step-by-Step," "Prom Scrunchies" and "What it means when you text hey girl good night but she doesn't answer." Actually that last one seems pretty current.

Google Photos with Emotion

Google+ will now let you add emotion to your photos! Just kidding, enjoy your bland, emotionless life!

Google SCHMICK

 
 
 
Google.au
Google.au

If you can't afford to fix up your house in real life, you can at least fix it up on Google Street View, thanks to SCHMICK (Simple Complete House Makeover Internet Conversion Kit). Here are all the details on how to add a flamingo to your yard or some columns to your house.

Google Levity Algorithm

 
 
 

The Google Levity Algorithm will add a little levity to your business communique. For example, a "Conference Call" becomes "Chat with T. Fey." It also inserts GIFs of rainbow-barfing unicorns into dry emails.

YouTube is Ending

 
 
 

YouTube is no longer accepting submissions in their 8-year-long contest to find the greatest videos on the internet. Be sure to watch everything before it is permanently deleted. They will be announcing their nomination for best video for the next two years. Then the winner will be announced and everything will be gone. Keep track of nominees here.
