Google Assistant comes with more fun features than its previous counterpart. This year, Google’s bringing that same approach to holiday fun. Now you can ask Google where Santa is, or play a virtual dreidel game.
Google’s been helping NORAD with the Santa tracker for years now, but Google Assistant makes it easier than ever. Simply ask “Where’s Santa?” and the assistant will let you know what he’s up to right now. Obviously, the real fun will kick off on Christmas Eve, but for now the assistant will still let you know how Santa’s preparing for his rounds. You can also entertain yourself in the meantime by asking Google for holiday-themed jokes.
For those who celebrate Hanukkah, you can also spin a virtual dreidel. Much like Google’s coin flipping feature, it will randomly pick one of a dreidel’s four sides each time you ask it to spin one. The assistant will tell you what side you got (Nun, Gimel, Hey, or Shin), as well as what that means for the game, just in case you’re rusty on the rules
