No internet? The Google app has a hidden game to occupy your time
Although free Wi-Fi and decent wireless network connections abound these days, there are still plenty of times where you might find yourself without an internet connection on your smartphone. Oh, the horror!
Luckily, Google has you covered: there’s a new hidden game inside the Google app that can be played without a data connection. In fact, the best way to access it is to turn off your data.
As first spotted by Android Police, the game is a lot like Flappy Bird (RIP), albeit with a cute little cloud character instead of a bird.
To access the game, either wait until you don’t have any data or manually shut off Wi-Fi and your mobile connection. Once you are disconnected, perform a search for any topic within the Google app or one of its related widgets. You’ll see a notification that you are not connected along with a photo of the cloud character of the game. Click that cloud and you’ll be taken to the game.
Check out the screenshots below for reference:
As the cloud, you have to float along through the sky while avoiding obstacles that come in the form of dark thunder clouds, birds, and other cute little characters. It’s a very simple game but it’s still fun and a great way to kill some time while you are unable to browse Android Authority.
You should be able to see the game on any version of the Google app above v22.214.171.124. Visit the link below to ensure you are on the latest version.
