A year ago Mountain View-based search engine giant Google announced that it has an interesting trivia game to offer to computer users all over the world. The name of the game in question is “A Google a Day” and the aim is to answer a question by searching for the answer on Google. You are asked a question and to find the answer you have access to the full range of Google search techniques. You’re even given hints to help you find the answer. If you think you have the correct answer, show it to Google – if you go it right, you earn points, if you didn’t get it right, Google will tell you to keep searching.

As mentioned above, the game was released a year ago. During al this time it was played by millions of people. What did all these people have in common, besides getting to uncover new ways to use Google search and besides learning new trivia facts? They had a plight in common – they all wanted 'A Google a Day' to be social.

The millions of users who played the trivia game asked to be able to challenge their friends, to be able to share their scores, and they asked for more than just one question per day. Google listened to the feedback and abided. On Monday, May 14, Google announced via Inside Search, its official Google Search blog, that a new and improved 'A Google a Day' version that makes the game more collaborative and fun has been released on Google+.

“Now you’ll be able to challenge your friends to a test of trivia and search speed and figure out who’s the expert at discovering little known facts about literature, history, or science. Race to the top of the leaderboard and earn bragging rights to show off your master search skills. Through fast-paced competition and an exciting battle of the wits, we hope the new A Google a Day game triggers your imagination about all the types of questions you can ask Google,” explained User Experience Researcher Dan Russell on the Inside Search blog.
