April Fools Day is practically a national holiday in Mountain View, so you can expect a series of pranks and jokes over the weekend.

In contrast, Turkey, now embroiled in a bitter dispute with the Netherlands, had little positive to say . It's not a system like the French system where you will end up with a run off between two candidates.
In the bottom left-hand corner - where users are given the option to switch to satellite images - Google has added a button to launch Ms Pac-Man. While updates usually do things like improve stability or speed, this update does something far more useful: it lets you play "Ms. Pac-Man". Type in "zerg rush" - a nod to the Blizzard game StarCraft - and you'll see several O's from the Google logo drop down and starting eating away at search results.

Instead of automatically placing the user where they're now at the app Google throws you in a completely random spot.
You can turn a map of the French Quarter into a classic arcade game.
