Anyone who has ever flat-out visited Google.com to perform their initial searches know all about the I’m Feeling Lucky button. This button’s primary use is to take you to the very first result of whatever comes up for your search result, a testament to Google’s accuracy in choosing which results to display based on your search terms. It’s amazing.
And now, I’m Feeling Lucky has metastasized itself in an entirely different form for the Google Assistant. The latest version of Assistant — only available on forthcoming Pixel phones to start — allows you to tell the digital friend that you’re feeling lucky. What it responds with is pretty cool.
It’s a game! A cheesy trivia one, too, like Trivial Pursuit. The Assistant asks how many people you have playing (you and play alone) with you and allows the participants to take turns answering trivia questions. Naturally, whoever has the highest score at the end of the short game wins.
It’s nothing amazing from a functionality standpoint, but it’s cool little tricks like these that makes the Google Assistant one of the most exciting reasons to own a Pixel device.
PS: No, this won’t work on the preview version of Assistant currently found in Allo, with the AI instead expressing how she’s feeling lucky, too, thanks to her ability to talk to you.
Nope, doesn’t work in Allo. Womp, womp.
