Google’s April Fools’ Day trick lets you play ‘Ms. Pac-Man’ in Google Maps (GOOG)


You can play “Ms. Pac-Man” right in the Google Maps app today.

Say goodbye to your productivity today — Google added “Ms. Pac-Man” to the Google Maps app in honor of April Fools’ Day.

It may not be the most original trick — Google did the same thing on the desktop version of Maps in 2015 — but it’s a whole lot of fun.

Because Google put it in the mobile app, you can play “Ms. Pac-Man” on your phone just as you would any other game.

And it’s easy to find: Open the app on your phone, and a button to start the game will be front and center.

The best part is that you get to play on real streets. My game took place in the Flatiron District in New York City.

You can move Ms. Pac-Man around by swiping in any direction, and your score is at the top of the screen.
