As the week of festivity is knocking at the door, and Christmas around the corner, people all around the globe will be eagerly waiting for Santa Claus and wonder what gifts he will bring. Global tech giant Google has rolled out its annual Santa Tracker app which will locate Santa, wherever he goes, this Christmas. The app provides games for children and they are directed towards raising the Christmas cheer. The Santa Tracker is an Android app and it makes you play as one of Santa helpers. On Christmas even, you can also locate Santa on the app, in places which he would visit.
Google will present a new game every day until Christmas and there are so many to find out in Santa’s village. Through an educator resource web page, teachers will be able to search for educational games as well as lesson plans which will make children celebrate the festival as well as learn. There is an official countdown for the time when Santa Claus will begin his journey. There are many things to learn too. This includes basic programming to learning trivia about different countries. Funnily enough, in the app, you can see elves dancing, and also makes you learn to say Happy New Year in Elvish.
The company also unveiled the app which uses geo-location to make you travel to places in the real world and recover the lost presents left by Santa Claus. The app has been integrated with Google’s Assistant software, according to an Android Police report. The Assistant has hilarious Christmas jokes when asked about where Santa Claus is. Even if you don’t have the app, you can ask about Santa to Google Assistant and it will take you to the official page of the Tracker app or at times redirects to the Wikipedia page of Santa Claus. According to reports, the Santa Tracker app has tied-up with Google.org with an aim to bring kids and charities all around the world, in connection with each other.
