Many tech companies usually participate in the fun, and last year there were pranks from Sony, Reddit, Twilio, and more. Google has a rich history of April Fools’ Day pranks, this year Google’s flagship fake product is Google Nose.
Nose purports to let you search for scents in Google search and use Android devices to smell objects and tell you what they are. Google says Nose can help you identify the smell of “a new car”, “the inside of an Egyptian tomb,” or “a ghost.” “Our task as designers is to get our users the information they are looking for as quickly and beautifully as possible”.
Check out the video below to see the Google Nose prank in action.
