Google is clearly not done with the April Fool’s Day prank announcements. Earlier today it announced that its video uploading site YouTube will no longer accept new video uploads, as well as adding a Treasure Mode to Google Maps. Now, the company has just announced two new enhancements to its products.
The first is Google Nose Beta, which Google calls the new “scentsation” in search. With over 15 million scentibytes of Aromabase, you can now search for “wet dog” and know what it smells like. Heck, Google knows (Nose?) what success smells like too! Go ahead, search for it on Google. Don’t worry, Safe Search is enabled here as well.
The new scentsation in search
- Coming to your senses: go beyond type, talk, and touch for a new notation of sensation.
- Your internet sommelier: expertly curated Knowledge Panels pair images, descriptions, and aromas.
- Take a whiff: the Google Aromabase – 15M+ scentibytes.
- Don’t ask, don’t smell: For when you’re wary of your query – SafeSearch included.
What’s that smell?
- Google NoseBETA leverages new and existing technologies to offer the sharpest olfactory experience available:
- Street Sense vehicles have inhaled and indexed millions of atmospheric miles.
- Android Ambient Odor Detection collects smells via the world’s most sensible mobile operating system.
