You can now play solitaire and tic-tac-toe games right in Google search

To play these games, all you need to do is search "solitaire" or "tic-tac-toe" in Google search. Users can play these games on both mobile and desktop versions of Google search. Heads up, these games are pretty addictive, don't let your productivity suffer.

From real time currency conversions, language translations to mathematical calculations, there are a lot of things you can do right in Google search, and without having to click on any search results. But the latest additions are probably the most fun ones that Google has rolled out to search lately. Now, you can now play popular Solitaire and Tic-tac-toe games right in the Google search result. No matter how old these games you must think are, the two games undoubtedly get you addicted to them (I literally had to force myself to stop playing, so I could start writing this story). Both Solitaire and Tic-tac-toe on the Google search are colorful and attractive to look at. Plus, they are a perfect rescue from boring meetings and dull conversations.

And what s the best part is that to play these games on Google search you really do not have to do much. Just go to Google search and type, Play Solitaire or Play Tic-tac-toe , and you see your game ready waiting for your first move. In case of solitaire, when you hit on the click to play , the game moves into a pop-up in front of your tab. That pop up asks you to choose the difficulty level between easy or hard , and once that s chosen, the game begins (and so rushes in the nostalgia of sitting through the noon on the computer playing solitaire when I was a child!). Also Solitaire has a sound turn on/off option, I personally like to keep it on, I love the sound it makes when it shuffles the deck.

In case of tic-tac-toe, the game runs right on the google search tab, unlike Solitaire that runs in sort of a pop up. On the top left corner of the game, the tic-tac-toe has the option to choose the difficulty level from. By default, the difficulty is set on Medium, however, when you click on it, the drop down gives you four options. Tic-tac-toe has three difficulty levels to choose from – easy, medium and impossible – and a fourth option to choose to play against a friend. However, the play against a friend option doesn t work like you d think. You can t really invite a friend online to play tic-tac-toe with you, you d need someone to be physically present with you, so the two of you can play together, or maybe if you really stink at the game then you can just play for the both sides.

Like other feature integration and searches that Google has done within its search result, the solitaire and tic-tac-toe too have an option of feedback given right below the game. The feedback, like any other asked by Google, takes user suggestion if the search was helpful or not, and an option to put it in comments.

Prior to solitaire and tic-tac-toe games, Google had added Pacman game in its search. Like solitaire and tic-tac-toe, all you need to do is type “pacman” in search. Google had introduced Pacman as a Google doodle back in 2010. If you love Google’s simple and fun to play easy games, you can go to its Google Doodle archive site wherein you can play some of the popular games built into doodles, like Soccer and Basketball among others.

Lately, Google has been integrating a couple of interesting feature to its search results, leveraging its Knowledge Graph. Google recently started rolling out a speed test tool within the search result, which allows user to measure their internet s upload speed, download speed and latency. The search engine also now shows song lyrics directly in search results, instead of going on websites and looking for them. Google also improved its symptom search results for better symptom-related queries, which are now accompanied by an overview of the symptom along with the ways for treatment, and when and what would warrant a visit to the doctor. Catering to the Indian audience, Google has also developed a better experience for its search product to Bollywood and Tollywood related searches, including links to videos and movie screening timings.
