A jump into nostalgia with Google Solitaire!
Google has always heard what its users want. It has always considered how people want to improve their searches and what they see. Because of this Google has always been the #1 search engine in everyone’s mind. But, Google Solitaire – has won over people’s hearts as well.
In 2016, Google announced on their official blog page that if a user searched for Solitaire, they would be directed to a page where they can play the game for free. Not only that, but users could also play it on desktops, tablets, or any smart device.
“It’s been said solitaire’s roots are in fortune telling. If that’s true, today your fate rests on your quick wit and the luck of the draw. When you search for “solitaire” on Google, the familiar patience game may test yours!”
With this Google also announced games like Snake, and Tic Tac Toe was also available for people to play.
The rules are still the same, with no changes, and Google has even upgraded the images on mobile phones so that people can see the game.

Why is Google Jumping onto the Gaming Bandwagon?
None of the games mentioned are remarkable in themselves, other than the fact that they bring a sense of nostalgia to people. It is an interesting experiment to see if people will use Google for something more than a search engine. Google has previously offered games as a part of its interactive doodles, like the Olympics or playable Moog Synthesizer.
But, these games had a very small shelf-life. It was something people chanced upon without actually intending to play it. This decision to jump onto the gaming bandwagon is to make sure that Google stays relevant. With the latest virtual assistant apps like Siri and Alexa – people get basic answers without needing a search engine. This means that our reliance on Google is slowly decreasing. Indirectly this impacts Google’s ad business. So, these new games, although nostalgic, have an ulterior motive – to make people come back to Google again and again!
