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

The addition allowed users to play Snake in famed cities across the world and would be available for the week to come for anyone looking to play.

Today is April Fools' Day, which means like every other year, you have to be careful of tech companies as on this day they try to show their creativity and play pranks with April Fools' Day stunt.

According to Google, Snake is being rolled out to iOS and Android phones and will stick around for about a week, so make sure you've got the most up to date version of Maps.


On the Android and iOS versions of the game you can queue up swipes if you're turning quickly, so there's not as much need to frantically swipe if you're in a tight corner.

You can now play the classic game Snake in the Google Maps app, just by hitting the top left menu button in the app, and selecting the option to play. You can even play it on the desktop via the standalone site.

The app got a new S-themed overflow menu that has a red dot to highlight the experience in the navigation drawer.


This isn't Google's first love affair with the classic Snake game.

To play the game, select any city map presented on your screen. The goal of the game is to pick up as many passengers as possible without running off of the map and without colliding with their own vehicle which is a train.

That's right, you can choose seven different 8-bit-ified places to play on - Cairo, São Paulo, London, Sydney, San Francisco, Tokyo, and World.
