It's the 1st of April again and Google celebrates the day with the usual portion of pranks. This year, the company transformed its Google Maps to be a playground for the classic arcade game Pac-Man. Yes, that's true, now you can play in any street in the world thanks to a recent update to Google Maps.

If you want to begin playing in your desktop browser, all you need to do is to navigate to Google Maps and then click on the icon on the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. The game is also playable on mobile devices in certain cities. Hurry up, because the company says the game "will only be around for a little while."

Pac-Man is not the only surprise by Google this year. In a video of a mock-up Google live event, the giant has also announced a new product - Google Panda. It is an on-the-go search device with outfit of a panda. Google Panda will answer all users' questions and is intended to have three specific features. The first one is to be cute, the second - to be mobile and the third - to be shockproof.

"Google Panda is engineered with state of the art emotional and conversational intelligence," promises vice president of engineering, Chris Yerga, in the video. "All you have to do is speak your mind."
