Call us a little weird, but there’s nothing more amusing to us than overwhelming a robotic assistant with a laundry list of dumb questions. You can do the same with Google Assistant as an Android user.
If you want to boss your Google Assistant around or get it to tell you a funny joke, there’s a lot you should ask your A.I. friend.
Below are some fun stuff that you can ask Google Assistant to hear jokes, play games, and discover Easter eggs. But first, let’s learn how to get it started.
How to Launch Google Assistant
These commands can operate on a range of Google Assistant-enabled devices, including iPhone, iPad, Android devices, smart speakers, and smart displays. You don’t need a Nest Home or Google Home device, just use your phone or tablet.
To get started, you just launch Google Assistant and recite the commands below whenever it’s listening. For speakers and displays, you simply say, “Hey, Google.
On Android, there are a number of ways you can launch Google Assistant. The easiest is to say either “OK, Google,” or “Hey, Google.” On newer devices, you can launch the Assistant by swiping from the bottom-left or -right corner.
Google Assistant Jokes
Why did the chicken cross the road?
What’s the best pick-up line?
I am your father.
Who let the dogs out?
Will you marry me?
A simple command will get Google Assistant to tell you a joke. There are different variations in a lot of categories. Below are some examples of how you can address this request:
- Tell me a joke.
- Tell me a knock-knock joke.
- Tell me a pun.
- Tell me a dad joke.
- Tell me a kid’s joke.
To get funny responses from Google, you can also say or ask the following joke setups:
- What goes up, but never comes down?
- Do you know the muffin man?
- What is your favorite dessert?
- Do you like to exercise?
- Make me a sandwich.
Google Assistant Games
You can use voice or keyboard controls to play these games. To start playing either of these games, please say or type the title of the section here as a command.
Dong Ding Coconut
If you say, “Hey, Google, Play Ding Dong Coconut,” you can play a memory game that will enable you to equate words with sounds. You’ve got to recall the words go with the sounds, and more are introduced as the game progresses.
Say, “Hey, Google, Play Mad Libs,” and Google Assistant will ask you to pick a genre that you can use by voice or touch. The game then leads you by filling in the blanks and then you’ll read the final story.
Ball of Cristal
Say, “Hey, Google, Play Crystal Ball,” and then like a Magic 8-Ball, you can ask a yes or no question. Google will give you a cryptic answer.
Google Assistant Easter Eggs
Although you’ve already worked out a variety of helpful stuff that your Google Assistant can do, do you know about any of the hidden fun questions you can ask? There are a lot of Google Assistant Easter eggs you can try.
You’ve already read of the Easter Eggs with Amazon Alexa, but Google does it a bit differently. The AI behind it provides a broader range of responses to keep the fun running much longer.

Assistant’s response: I wouldn’t know. That’s not something I talk about.
