For April Fools' Day, it's helping the world find Waldo, the elusive star of the Where's Waldo illustrated book series.

The company announced that it has introduced 39 new languages in which Google Maps is now available - including among them Croatian. It would have appreciated if Google also added support for some new Indian languages; however, we can only wait till Google adds support for some Indian languages.

All you need to do is say "Hey Google, Where's Waldo?" to begin your hunt for Wally.

Sloane Stephens wins Miami Open title by overcoming Jelena Ostapenko
But at this Miami Open , Ostapenko defeated No. 4 seed Elina Svitolina and No. 9 Petra Kvitova in straight sets. Prior to her arrival in Miami , Stephens' win-loss record since the US Open had been a miserable 3-10.


Click on that and then you'll be able to join in the Where's Waldo hunt.

Google has partnered with Waldo for April Fool's Day to allow users to play Where's Waldo.

Google Maps has always been good at tracking things down. To start, press play when you see Waldo waving at you from the side of your screen or ask "Hey Google, Where's Waldo?" via Google Assistant on your phone, Chromebook, or Home device.

The search giant (as Waldo) further explains, "The fun doesn't stop there".

Once you find Waldo, you will be transported to places all around the world to search him over and over again. Warning: Where's Waldo in online form is just as addicting as the books of your childhood, so don't open unless you've got time to spare.
