Google’s latest prank wants you to take a reaction selfie on Websites you visit

Google’s latest prank wants you to take a reaction selfie on Websites you visit

Google’s April Fools jokes are far superior than most others in tech and its latest is no exception.

A new button that’s appeared in Chrome mobile today for users in timezones where it’s already April 1 allows you to take a selfie as a reaction to any site.

Ever been to a tech festival?

TNW Conference won best European Event 2016 for our festival vibe. See what's in store for 2017.

It’s ridiculous… but kind of amazing all at once.

Clicking the bar at the bottom or in the Chrome menu offers the selfie mode which splits the screen with your camera and takes a screenshot.

From there, you’re able to share your reaction to the social network of your choice with the hashtag #ChromeSelfie. People love selfies.

This is one of those features that I could almost imagine actually being popular if it weren’t just a joke. So, please, share with us your #TNWselfies while you’re at it.
