Everyone’s favorite pal is celebrating his 90th anniversary and Google Home is getting in on the fun. Here are a few ways you can wish Disney’s Mickey Mouse a happy birthday:
Revisit 90 years of Mickey in NYC
Mickey: The True Original Exhibition celebrates Mickey Mouse’s influence on art and pop culture throughout history. Running now through February 10, the exhibition takes visitors on a journey through Mickey’s impact on arts and creativity in all its forms. The last room in the exhibition features a special, interactive experience with Google Home Mini.
Challenge your family in Mickey’s Game Show
If you can’t make it to the exhibition, you can still join Mickey and his friends for a birthday celebration at home. You’ll team up with Daisy, Donald, Goofy or Minnie to answer Mickey’s trivia questions. Just say, “Hey Google, play Mickey’s Game Show” to give it a try.
Bring a little Mickey magic to your Mini
Otterbox created a custom base accessory to make your Google Home Mini look like Mickey. Just clip your device into the base to showcase his iconic ears in any room. And if you’d like to play a game with Mickey himself, just say, “Hey Google, play Mickey Mouse Adventure.”
And remember—the Disney fun doesn’t stop there. You can also make storytime more magical with our new Read Along feature. As you read select Little Golden Books aloud, Google Home will play sound effects and music to bring the story to life. If your family loves Mickey Mouse, you can read favorites like Mickey’s Christmas Carol and Mickey Mouse and His Spaceship. To get started, just say “Hey Google, let’s read along with Disney.”
Parents, you can create an account for kids under 13 through Family Link, and then link their Google Account and voice to Google Home.
