Have you ever wanted to be notified when a new Google Doodle reaches the company’s main search home page? Well, Google has released a server-side update to the Google app which will notify you when new Google Doodles arrive. From now on, you should see the Notifications option located at the very top of the Settings menu for the Google app on most Android devices. However, that new Notifications option appears below the Google Assistant menu on the Google Pixel or Pixel XL.
Currently, “New Doodle games, videos, and interactive experiences” is the only setting and is disabled by default. This means you will need to enable it if you would like to get the notifications when a new Doodle is posted. Just follow these steps to get it done:
Step 1: You first need to make sure that you have updated to the latest version of the Google app. To do this, simply go to the Google Play store and check for updates.
Step 2: Launch the Google app on your device and navigate to Settings.
Step 3: You need to tap the Notification heading and then flick the “New Doodle games, videos, and interactive experiences” toggle ON.
That’s it! If the new setting is not available, it’s possible that you haven’t got the Google app update yet. Just be patient and wait for it to be rolled out to you.
Google Doodles serve as fun little additions to Google search that take responsibility for highlighting main events in history, important birthdays and a lot more. If you don’t access Google on a daily basis, you could easily miss some animations, pictures and games that are added throughout the year.
