Get ready for Saint Nick's ride with the updated Google Santa Tracker app
With less than a month to go before Christmas arrives, it’s time to get ready for the most famous yearly trip in history with the updated Google Santa Tracker app. The new version adds some features, including the ability to keep track of Saint Nick’s trip around the world on December 24 on an Android TV.
In addition, the updated app includes more support for Android Wear smartwatches, although specifics have not been revealed. Kids of all ages can check out the redesigned Santa’s Village in the new version, along with an AR game, Present Quest, that shows people how to get virtual gifts from real-world locations, which are then taken and placed at a local “Santa’s Workshop”.
Of course, the biggest reason for using the app is coming in just a few weeks, where children can keep tabs on where the big guy is in the world as he makes his way across the globe via your smartphone, tablet, smartwatch, Android TV or Chromecast-enabled device. In the meantime, you should be able to get in the holiday spirit with this app’s games and other features, which include “elves in jetpacks, rolling gumballs, sleighs powered by rockets and Google Cardboard.” Sounds like fun.
