You don’t even need a gaming PC or console on hand because Google has hidden mini-games in practically all of its products, from Chrome and Search to Google Earth.
Some of these are Google originals, such as the hidden dinosaur game, while others are classics like Pac-Man and Tic-Tac-Toe. These secret Google games might be the solution if you’re bored, having trouble passing the time, and desperately want to avoid your day job. Here are 7 games that you can play now.
