Google adds Harry Potter-style magic to Android Street View

Posted by on in Others

Google is adding a little magic to Android phones ahead of the release of the movie “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” set in 1926 in the wizarding world of Harry Potter.

Android users can cast a few spells to control their phones. After saying “OK, Google,” you can turn your phone’s flashlight on and off by saying “lumos” and “nox,” modeling a spell that lets wizards emit light from the end of their wand.

You can also turn off your ringer and notification sound by saying “OK, Google” and then “silencio.”

The search engine giant also updated Google Street View so you can tour four scenes of the movie: The Magical Congress of the USA, Steen National Bank, The Blind Pig speakeasy, and Tina and Queenie Goldstein’s apartment.

“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” apparates into theaters November 18.
