Because Google knows how to have fun

The best Google Assistant Easter eggs

Much like Alexa, Google Assistant knows how to kick back and relax. While it's getting better at being helpful with more abilities, like free voice calls and Routines, it also has a few funny Google Home commands and hidden Easter Eggs up its sleeve.

You can read our full verdict of the smart home speaker in our Google Home review, but we've also spent some time discovering what Easter eggs Google's assistant is hiding. From jokes and games to geeky pop culture references, there's a lot more to Google Home than you probably realised. Note: below we've started each command with the 'OK Google' wake phrase but 'Hey, Google' also works.
