Google Maps Has A Hidden 'Snake' Game

Google Maps Celebrates April Fool's With Twist on Classic 'Snake' Game

You will have the option of choosing from different cities, which are mentioned above.

In Google Maps' version of Snake, you control a train picking up tourists in certain cities around the world, as well as collecting food and landmarks for extra points. Interestingly, Microsoft has banned all April Fools' Day pranks, though other tech companies like Google, OnePlus, etc are still on with these. While the Easter Egg is expected to expire in a week, this site might let you play the game later as well.

Google will allow users to play the game inside Google Maps.

While some were focused on pranks for April Fools' Day, Google added a classic game to the maps navigation app.

Lyft IPO Beats Uber to the Punch
All eyes were on Lyft Friday morning as investors rushed to get a piece of the first big USA technology listing of the year. Lyft's IPO represents a watershed moment for ride hailing, an industry hatched from the rise of smartphones.

The Snake game is now rolling out worldwide on Android and iOS and will be available from within the Google Maps app for about a week. You can't pick on your neighbors though as you're limited to selecting just a few cities to go to, including Cairo, Sydney, and Tokyo, just to name some. Just touch the sidebar option on the left side of the search bar and you'll see the "Play Snake" option. You pick up passengers on the way and with every additional passenger you pick, your bogey increases in size.

Google says the train aka the Snake will travel around the world from Big Ben, the Great Sphinx of Giza to the Eiffel Tower.

On a blog post announcing the new addition, Google said: "Play Snake to get your daily dose of 90s nostalgia (boy bands, fanny packs and slap bracelets not included)".
