The 93 best Google Home Easter eggs to try right now

Google just wants to have fun, that's all it really wants

The best Google Assistant Easter eggs

Google Assistant knows how to kick back and relax, and there are hundreds of funny Google Home commands, hidden Google Easter Eggs, and even Google Home games to try out.

You can get a Home in the form of the regular Google Home, the Google Home Mini or Google Home Max, plus third-party Google Assistant speakers - all of which are hiding some fun Easter eggs. From jokes and games to pop culture references, there's a lot more to Google Home than you probably realise.

Note: below we've started each command with the "OK Google" wake phrase, but "Hey, Google" also works.

Is Home more fun to hang out with than Alexa? You won't know until you try these out.

Speaking to robots is weird, but try out some of these prompts and you'll be friends with Google Assistant in no time.
