'What Sound Does A Pig Make?' And 3 Other Features Added To Google App

Google Inc. NASDAQ:GOOG, Google Inc. NASDAQ:GOOGL - 'What Sound Does A Pig Make?' And 3 Other Features Added To Google App

Google and its parent company Alphabet Inc GOOG 0.02% GOOGL 0.24% may have a solution for traders and investors suffering from the "dog days" of summer.

Google said in its official blog on Thursday that two of the oldest and most iconic games ever, solitaire and tic-tac-toe, are now available to play in the Google app and on the desktop.

When a user searches for "solitaire" on Google, an option to play the game shows up of the search results. A separate Google search for "tic-tac-toe" also brings up the iconic game.

After spending some time trying to finish a game of solitaire, try asking Google, "what sound does a pig make." Hint: the answer is "oink" (obviously), but the search result also offers a brief sound clip.

Spend some time listening to sounds of some of the lesser known animals, including the humpback whale.

Thanksgiving is approaching, so there's no better way to get in the holiday spirit than listening to the "gobble gobble" sound a turkey makes, courtesy of a Google search, of course.

Feeling a bit lucky? Search for "flip a coin" and see how many times you can accurately guess the results.

"These are just a sample of the delightful surprises that await you on Google," the company concluded in its blog post. "After all, Search is for so much more than research and practical matters — it's for fun, too!"
