Google’s whimsy continues with Google Assistant.
Google is notorious for a corporate sense of whimsey, from gag search results to its ever-changing homepage. So it should come as no surprise that Google Assistant, the company’s home assistant app, follows suit. Users might ask Google Assistant to schedule appointments or look up information, but that’s only half its charms. Here are some funny things to ask your Google Home.
Funny things to ask Google Home
When we tested some funny things to ask Google Home, these were the answers we got. We also found that some questions have multiple answers, so it’s worth trying for yourself to see what Assistant says.
