Google Doodles are fun little additions to Google search that highlight major events in history, important birthdays and so on. Unless you make a point of hitting Google every day, you could easily miss one of the many animations, images, and games that are added throughout the year.
In order to receive a Google Doodle notification, you will need to have the very latest version of the Google app installed on your phone – just pay a visit to the Google Play store and check for updates. This done, fire up the app and head to Settings.
Tap the Notification heading and you can enable a toggle to receive notifications about “New Doodle games, videos, and interactive experiences”.
If you don’t see the new setting it just means that the Google app update hasn’t rolled out to you yet; be patient and it will arrive in due course.
The company has rolled out a server-side update to that app that puts in a new high-level notification for Doodles.
The update puts the Notifications option at the very top of the Settings menu for the Google app on most Android devices. If you own a Google Pixel or Pixel XL, that new Notifications option can be viewed under the Google Assistant menu.
Now, the new setting is only for “New Doodle games, videos, and interactive experiences” and is set to off by default, which means you have to go in and enable it if you really want to get the heads up on when a new Doodle goes live. It’s more than possible that the Google search app will add even more notification options to this new feature in the coming weeks and months.
