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.
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.
