Google adds new word and puzzle games to smart displays

Google is adding new games to smart-supported displays like the Nest Hub to give people something new to play in time for the holidays. The expansion is in three categories. In the first one, you will find word games like Voice Quest. Here you play as a mage who casts spells using surnames. In another new experience called Game of Words you will have six letters with which you need to make as many words as you can. The longer the word, the more points you get. You can even compete against other players if you feel up for the challenge. It’s completely basic and nerdy, but some are sure to get a kick out of it.

In the second section, you will find puzzle games like Daily Brain Trainer. Google says this one will keep your mind sharp with quick challenges that will test your memory, reaction times and pattern matching skills. Finally, there is a virtual pet section where you can find a game called Hey Fish. This one allows you to create a virtual fishbow where you take care of the fish that live there. Hello Kitty fans can look forward to the mascot grabbing their sleek display soon. These games should appeal to children and families.
