3 amazing new Google search functions

Google is always expanding and improving its search capabilities. From controlling the privacy of your searches to hearing what you're saying, the search engine's innovations are designed to help you find exactly what you need.

Of course, not everything you Google is going to be serious. There are searches you can perform purely for enjoyment. You can see some popular ones by clicking here! There are three new searches you can do that fall into this category.

From any desktop or mobile browser, Google "tic tac toe" or "tic-tac-toe." The results page will generate a playable tic-tac-toe board. You can challenge your friends or try to beat the computer. The game is set to medium difficulty by default.

The fun doesn’t stop there. Searching for "solitaire" returns a solitaire game with two degrees of difficulty. After you win, you can share your score on social media if you want. And make sure you check out this awesome download for 1,000 free solitaire games!

Finally, the old see-and-say is digitized in this last search. Searching "animal noises" will generate an interactive section where you can hear the sounds made by different animals. You can also Google one of these 20 specific animals to hear its call: ape, dog, cat, zebra, lion, moose, owl, pig, cow, duck, elephant, horse, raccoon, bowhead whale, humpback whale, wolf, rooster, sheep, tiger and a turkey.

Try each of these searches for yourself and share them with your grandkids. And if you’re trying to find a specific answer, check out this tip that helps you narrow your search.
