It’s pretty easy to hoax people. We all want to be deceived, but only up to a point. Some hoaxes are fun and pleasant, others malicious and unpleasant. We’d like a way to tell the difference (Robert Carroll).

Google Nose


In a surprising move, the world's leading tech giant, Google, announced April 1 2023, that they will be releasing a revolutionary new product called "Google Nose". This new technology will allow users to search for smells using their smartphones or other devices.


With Google Nose, users will be able to smell the world around them like never before. Want to know what your favorite restaurant smells like before you even get there? Just use Google Nose. Want to find the perfect perfume or cologne? Google Nose has got you covered.


According to a press release from Google, the technology behind Google Nose involves a combination of sensors, algorithms, and artificial intelligence. The company claims that they have already indexed over 10,000 different smells, including the scent of fresh-baked cookies, freshly cut grass, and even wet dog.


The press release also included a quote from Google CEO, Sundar Pichai, who said, "We believe that smell is the next frontier in search technology. With Google Nose, we're giving people the ability to explore and discover the world in a whole new way."


While some are skeptical about the usefulness of such a product, others are excited to try it out. The internet has been buzzing with memes and jokes about what the world would smell like if Google Nose was real.


The blog post claimed that Google Nose used "Street Sense" vehicles equipped with "mobile aroma indexing" technology to collect smells from around the world. These smells were then analyzed and indexed in Google's search database.


Users were encouraged to try out the feature by searching for various smells such as "new car smell" or "wet dog". However, when users tried to use Google Nose, they were presented with a message that read "Sorry, your nose is not supported in this version of Google. Please try again in 2031."


Unfortunately, for those who got excited, Google confirmed later that it was an April Fools' Day prank and that there is no such thing as Google Nose. Nevertheless, it remains a memorable moment in Google's history of April Fools' Day jokes.
