Vortex To Ding Dong Coconut: Fun Games You Can Play With Google Home

    Got a Google Home or a Mini at your place? Guess what? You can use it for more than just playing music or dimming your lights. With simple commands, you can bond over fun games with your fam or keep yourself amused for hours. While some of them are voice-based, some games require the use of a screen. Either way, you're guaranteed to have fun! Don't believe us? Check out this list of games you can play with Google Home and find out for yourself. 



    SongPop

    SongPop

    It's a simple game but one that will have you hooked. You just need to listen to a small audio clip and then guess the song name and artist. Easy, right? You can even choose the genre of music (pop, rock, country, etc) based on which the quiz music clips will be selected. You can get your fam together to play this or else Google Assistant will find an opponent for you. 

    Get started by saying, “Hey Google, let’s play SongPop.”

    Ding Dong Coconut

    Ding Dong Coconut

    This one is a nutty memory game of sounds and words. In the game, you need to remember sounds played by Google Home and words that Assistant assigns to them. For example, a dog’s bark may be associated with the word 'pressure cooker', and you have to recall both the sound and the word. In each round, a new sound and word association is made. How many rounds do you think you can last?

    Akinator

    Akinator

    The roles are reversed here. You get to think of any character (a public figure or a fictional one) and Akinator, a fictional genie, will try to guess it by asking you twenty questions. Your job obviously is not to let the genie win! Ready to stump it?

    Math Logic

    Math Logic

    Love racking your brain over numbers and logic? This one's a step-up from your regular mental Math problems! Instead of asking 'what is seven times eight?', it may ask you 'what you’d get if you add 6 Mbps with 7 Gbps?'. It's sometimes slow when it comes to picking up commands, but it's overall quite interesting.

    Vortex

    An interactive, voice-first, adventure game, this one takes you on a journey through an abandoned space ship that is being attacked by aliens.

The narrative is immersive and you get to engage with imaginary characters, make friendships and learn about the past, with regards to the game, of course. A whole new world! Ready to explore it?
