Google is back with an upgraded Santa Tracker for 2017

Santa Tracker started a few years back, a service which permits us to follow Santa’s footsteps on Christmas Eve as he delivers gifts around the world. Like they do every year, Google has a countdown to Santa’s arrival with a myriad of games and activities to get you in the holiday spirit. This year, however, Google made things more interesting by implementing a bunch of new features, games and activities.

For 2017, Google has programmed many new games, integrations with other platforms such as Android Wear and Android TV, and many exciting learning activities. A few include ‘Penguin Swim,’ a game where users control a penguin using their device’s accelerometer, ‘Code Boogie,’ where users will be taught to code a dancing elf, and ‘Santa Canvas,’ to express ourselves through art and an online snowball fight. There are too, many others.

Only for Android, Google has added Santa Snap, which will permit the user to take snapshots of famous landmarks by navigating Google Maps with a jetpack-equipped elf.


Besides the mini-games and ability to monitor Santa’s position, Google has implemented a new section in its app dedicated to teachers and parents. This section will provide informative material on Christmas to teach kids about the festivity all around the world.

If you are interested in the above, download the Google Santa Tracker app on your Android phone or tablet, or head to on your desktop computer.

About Pierfrancesco Santin 24 Articles
My name is Pierfrancesco Santin. I am an enthusiastic, 20 year old human being from Italy. I am expanding my consciousness by manifesting long term vision into my short term actions, and creating a life I love. When we do what we love, a separated and subjective entity as the human can feel reunited with the reality around is. This is the essence of all spiritual practice, reconnecting to the One, the Dao, the un-nameless ultimate reality that is around us. Im passionate about LIFE, about being here every moment by practicing presence, about feeling alive by eating raw living foods, about feeling rested by having a good night sleep, about feeling energized by moving my body, and about creatively expressing my self through video creation and writing.
