There is no denying how awesome Google is. With the many products Google provides us, it’s normal to think Google is really serious about what they do. However, that is not entirely true. Google allows a little bit of fun too, okay more than a little bit! Case in point, they leave different gimmicks in their main product, the Google search engine and give us some break from all the tiring office or school work we may have.
I present to you, some Google secret functions that you may have not known yet. Let’s go:
