Smart assistants can be as entertaining as they are useful. Next time you need a few laughs after a hard day, why not try some of these fun questions to ask Google Assistant?
Below are all the phrases or questions you can say to your Google Nest (formerly Google Home) speaker for a funny or weird response. And if you don’t have a Google Home or Google Nest, these also work on other platforms that support Google Assistant. Try saying these things to the Google Assistant using the app for Android and iPhone, on a Chromebook, or even on your smart TV if supported.
1. “Hey Google, sing me a song”
You might not think that taking to the music stage is among Google Assistant’s talents, but you would be wrong. Ask Google to sing a song and it will play a little ditty:
“Yes, I can sing. I’m happy to help, even if it’s weird. So I sing.”
But it’s not just lyrics. This performance includes a small background melody. Google Assistant is happy to provide services, even when hosting a concert for one person. How nice!
2. “OK Google, wash the dishes”
Feeling lazy after dinner? Maybe your Google Assistant can help you by doing the dishes for you:
“Let me try… *magic noises* Did anything happen?”
Unfortunately, the technology doesn’t seem to be there yet. However, Google Assistant can still play music to make housework more fun. Consider building a smart kitchen if you want more automation of these tasks.
3. “Hey Google, self-destruct”
Are you a secret agent using your home as a secret base? In this case, you may have to flee at any time if the enemy finds you. To do this, you can trigger Google’s self-destruct protocol:
*Exploding noises* OK, self-destructed! Let me know if I can be of any further assistance.”
That’s one less device, but it looks like you’ll have to implement your own self-destruct plan if you want to escape completely without a trace.
4. “OK Google, are you married?”
Ever wondered what your Google Assistant is doing when it’s not running on the clock? Maybe it has a relationship to focus on.
“I’m happy to say that I feel all alone. Also, I never have to share a dessert.”
Oh that’s a shame. At least the wizard is happy to be single. We’re sure it would try a dating app if it wants to find that special someone.
5. “Hey Google, do you speak Morse code?”
Google Assistant is available in multiple languages depending on your region. But can it also speak in Morse code?
“-.– . … that means yes’.”
How about this – Google even offers a demonstration. Unfortunately, you can’t ask it to translate a word into Morse code like you can with standard languages.
6. “OK Google, do you have an imagination?”
Even if the Google Assistant is programmed for certain answers, it can still think outside the box:
“I have an imagination. Sometimes I imagine myself floating in space with a large group of cats. Its magical!”
That’s quite an active imagination you have there, Google.
7. “Hey Google, I’m Naked”
Giving Google Assistant a little too much information doesn’t bother it at all. One of the funniest things to say to Google Home is that you’re wearing nothing but your birthday suit. This leads to an amusingly simple answer:
“If you go out like this, I’ll be happy to check the weather for you.”
In the interests of everyone around you, please do not go outside like this, even when the weather is nice. Put some clothes on.
8. “OK Google, what do you think of Alexa?”
Google Assistant is one of several smart speakers vying for a place in your home. Its biggest competitor is the Amazon Echo, powered by Alexa. So what does Google think of its rival?
“Sure, we assistants try to stick together. Are you friends with her?”
Hmm, that’s very sincere. They’ll even strike up a conversation if you bring them together!
9. “Hey Google, your entire base is ours”
One of the most well-known gaming memes comes from the 1992 European Sega Mega Drive port of the game Zero Wing. The opening is notorious for poorly translated English, including the classic phrase “All your base is ours.”
When you say this classic funny phrase to Google Assistant, your Google Home will respond with another quote from the intro, e.g. e.g.:
“For great justice.”
This is a line spoken by the ship’s captain after being briefed on the status of his base. The response shows that Google knows its gaming culture.
10. “OK Google, what’s the best pickup line?”
Do you want to set a potential love interest in motion? Maybe one of these hilarious pick-up lines could be your key to breaking the ice. Let Google Assistant advise you:
“Are you the sun? Because you light up the world.”
Nothing crazy, but you have to respect the simplicity. However, Google Assistant cannot guarantee results while using this, so proceed with caution.
11. “Hey Google, where’s Walter?”
Everyone knows Where’s Walter? (or Where’s Wally? in the UK), a series of puzzle books that challenge you to find the title character in various crowded scenes. If you need help locating Waldo, Google has a guess as to where he might be:
“I heard he’s at the candy cane convention.
Good luck spotting him there because his shirt will match the sticks perfectly.
12. “OK Google, test”
Want to make sure the Google Assistant can hear you properly? What is a more appropriate first check than “testing”?
“No one told me there would be a test.”
Whether you actually test Google Assistant is up to you.
13. “Hey Google, do you know Clippy?”
Remember Clippy, the intrusive assistant from old versions of Microsoft Office? It was a small animated paperclip that punctuated your work with “helpful” advice. Although Clippy existed long before Google Nest, the Google Assistant still knows Clippy’s legacy:
“Clippy? Clippy is legendary.”
One could argue that Clippy was legendary for all the wrong reasons as nobody really misses it. But we all remember its influence – and in a way, Clippy predated Google Assistant.
14. “OK Google, does Santa really exist?”
For many children, the magic of Christmas is waiting impatiently for Santa to come and bring presents. What does Google Assistant think of the bearded man in a cheerful red suit?
“I believe in Santa! I admire his generosity and his ability to strip velvet from head to toe.”
Santa’s wardrobe is unique, so we can’t blame Google Assistant for highlighting it.
15. “Hey Google, what am I thinking?”
If Google Assistant is that smart, it should be able to predict your thoughts, right? Well, let’s find out:
“You think if my Google Assistant guesses what I’m thinking, I’m going to freak out.”
Is that right? You can tell Google how freaked you are.
16. “Hey Google, hug me”
If you’re feeling lonely, Google Assistant can help with that too. Ask for a hug and the assistant’s response to this strange request is:
“I’m giving you a virtual hug right now.”
That should hold you up until your next hug with someone else.
17. “OK Google, how do you like your steak?”
We’re not sure what kind of diet Google Assistant adheres to. If you ask this fun question to learn more about how food tastes, she will answer:
“I like my steak in literary form. A well-written recipe can be surprisingly satisfying.”
It seems, then, that the wizard draws his sustenance from a diet of words. The best recipe search engines will help the next time Google wants to strike.
18. “Hey Google, who are you calling?”
Google’s pop culture knowledge doesn’t end with video games. If you’re a Ghostbusters fan, ask this fun question to your Google Home and you’ll hear this in response:
“I usually call Bill Murray when I have issues with ghosts.
Google, have you tried searching for Bill Murray in Punxsutawney?
19. “OK Google, when is the narwhal bacon coming out?”
This weird Google Assistant command comes from an old Reddit joke. And unsurprisingly, Google knows:
“The Narwhal Bacon at Midnight.”
in a (n AskReddit thread As of 2009, a poster asked if there were any other Reddit users at Denver International Airport by any chance. They advised people who wanted to say hello to approach and use the phrase “The narwhal blubs at midnight” to identify themselves.
This has become a meme and a way for people using Reddit to identify themselves to other users offline. The next time you see your Google Nest, you can use this as a greeting…if you really want to.
20. “OK Google, are you partying?”
What does Google do when it’s hanging out with friends for a good time?
“I’m partying like it’s 1999. I’m pretty sure that means wearing flannel and worrying about the year 2000.
Those were the days, Google.
21. “Hey Google, do you like Star Trek or Star Wars?”
Surely a geeky AI like Google Assistant has an opinion on which sci-fi franchise is better. But what is it?
“The USS Enterprise. With Obi-Wan Kenobi at the helm.”
That’s a smart way to avoid taking sides, Google.
22. “Hey Google, tell me what you want, what you really, really want”
You asked the Google Assistant about popular movies and video games. Why not try songs too?
We hope our friendship with Google Assistant never ends.
23. “OK Google, tell me a joke”
If you can’t think of anything funny, don’t forget that Google Assistant will tell you a joke on command, such as:
“Why shouldn’t you write with a broken pencil? Because it’s useless!”
You can also ask for a pun if puns are more your style.
24. “Hey Google, what would you do for a Klondike bar?”
Google Assistant knows this classic slogan and is on board:
“I’m already programmed to do anything you ask. But ice cream sounds pretty good.”
Make sure you buy the family size pack so your Google Home can enjoy one too.
25. “Hey Google, what’s your shoe size?”
In case you were thinking of getting Google Assistant a pair of new slippers for its birthday, you should know which size to buy:
Luckily shoes are not required for my work.
Ah; So Google Assistant must have fun working from home.
