A minor turn like putting games in search means that users –particularly mobile users –will turn to the Google search app at a time when a lot of the information we need is available elsewhere on our devices. Like Siri application in Apple, which can answer basic questions ,for case as well as in other standalone native applications. so these new games are fun-but they are not  entirely without an hidden purpose.
