Because Google doesn’t want to disappoint its customers by breaking tradition, the company has recently launched two pet-friendly Internet surfing applications as part of the April Fool’s day celebration. Thinking that our cats and dogs spend too much time watching us browse the Internet, Google found it appropriate that the tables should turn for a day.
This means that today you will be the one who will be staring at your cat or your dog as they surf the world-wide-web searching for things like stuffed animals, food, balls of strings, and chewable toys.
What’s Google Up To Now?
Named ‘I’m feeling Woof’ and ‘I’m Feeling Meow,’ the two applications which bear Google’s distinguishable signature are part of the company’s long-standing pranking tradition. To name a few of them – the launch of Google’s wearable nose, announcing that YouTube will be closed down for legal reasons, and, of course, the Drop the Mic application.
And now, Google has decided to regale its customers with yet another fiendishly delightful April Fool’s day prank. As a result, iOS and Android customers will now be able to download and use ‘I’m Feeling Woof’ or ‘I’m Feeling Meow.’
According to the company’s statements, the apps have already been launched as part of Google’s iOS and Android application. So, if you’re an iOS person, in order to access this new feature, please long-press your 3D Touch and choose one of the two options. As for Android users, head to Google Play and download the Google for Pets application.
Because Pets Deserve Internet, Too
So, how do these applications work? After launching them, your phone will turn into a pet-friendly interface which can be paw-accessed. Your pets will be able to see things like milk, bones, scratching posts, tennis balls, balls of string, and much more.
Now, Google said that although it’s true that these two new applications are part of their traditional pranking sessions, they’re actually very real and very entertaining ways to interact with your pet.
Of course, we all know that Google’s Play Store is teeming with apps designed for cats and dogs, but the company wants to take this whole Internet-for-pets thing to the next level. Who knows? Maybe in a couple of years, out cats or dogs will start live-streaming their play sessions.
If you are interested in more pet applications, you may want to head to Google’s Store and search for things like Bones for Dogs or Dummy Laser for Cats to Chase.
