Google really wants you to stay on their domains to do everything from using a bubble level to searching with Google Lens. The last attempt will be add minigames directly on the new tab page in Google Chrome.
Over time, Google has created minigames for various reasons and most of them are still active … if you know where to find them or remember the specific search. Now in Google Chrome Dev the company is trying to put them on a tray, one a day. Shows above recommended articles.
Search or play?
Google Chrome is trying to become less of a tool for opening web pages and more of a tool for discovering content. That is, show interesting content for those who open Google Chrome because they get bored and not because you have something in mind that you want to consult.
The new tab page, usually the entry point for searching for something or opening a web page, has long included a string of related articles based on the user’s profile and similar – if not equal – to the Discover of the Google application. Soon, if the test is successful, a mini-game of the day will be included in addition to related articles.
This minigame of the day is today the Minesweeper, now accessible to the new tab page in Google Chrome Dev, although it should be expected to change every day. This minigame requires an Internet connection, although if you don’t have it, you will always have the dinosaur minigame.
For now it is a test, so it remains to be seen if it will end up reaching the stable version of Google Chrome in the future. By the way, if you are interested in playing this minigame of minesweeper and do not feel like installing Google Chrome Dev, it is included within Google Play Games And you can also do it by searching for “minesweeper” on Google.
