google pixel xl initial review aa (32 of 48) google assistant

Google has decided to sneak a fun little Easter egg inside the Google Assistant on the new Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones. If you’re a trivia buff, you’ll definitely like this one.

Ars Technica reports that all a Pixel owner has to do is open up Google Assistant and then say, “I’m Feeling Lucky” to begin the game. “I’m Feeling Lucky” is a reference to the button on the main Google.com page that, when pressed, takes you to a random search result. The game, which is actually called Are You Feeling Lucky, comes complete with theme music, audience reactions and a host that likes to throw out sharp one-liners.

In many ways, Are You Feeling Lucky is similar to the classic You Don’t Know Jack PC games that also involved fast trivia questions from a snarky, but unseen host. This new game even allows for multiple players. Each person answer a question and, at the end of the round, Google Assistant proclaims the winner. This is definitely a welcome addition and could be a popular way to spend some idle time, especially if you are with a group of friends.

What do you think of this neat Easter Egg in Google Assistant? Would you like to see it expanded to other Android phones?
