Google Assistant gets NORAD Santa TrackerThis year, Google did some cool stuff with Google Assistant. Everyone I know went gaga over the smart and quirky Google Assistant. And now, Google is taking it a notch further just in time for the holidays. You can now ask Google Assistant what Santa is up to or even play a game of virtual dreidel.
For years now, Google partners with the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) to entertain users with real-time updates about Father Christmas’s adventures via Google Maps and Google Earth. This year, though, Google Assistant makes things more fun.

“Where’s Santa?”

Just ask the question and the Google Assistant will tell where exactly Santa is and what he’s up to now. And what’s more, you can even ask the assistant for Santa-themed jokes. Christmas Eve would be more exciting, of course, with Santa making his final preparations to hand over gifts.

Play the Hanukkah game.

If you’re not into the Christmas spirit, you can ask Google Assistant to spin the dreidel instead. Just like flipping a coin, your assistant will give you a random side every time you spin the dreidel. You could get Nun, Gimel, Hay, or Shin, and what you get from the game, like a few coins.
Are you in the holiday spirit yet? I know I am.
