Google also reminds users that you can search for Santa directly in Google Maps and google.com in addition to using the Santa Tracker. You can even go into Street View to look at the cities he is visiting as he makes his trip to deliver toys.
This year, Santa’s Village has some new games – sliding penguins and dancing elves, as Google notes – in addition to games available only on the Android app.
“As we get closer to the big day, you can ask your Pixel device or Google Home "Where is Santa". The answer may surprise you,” Google says on the site.
While the two sites have different features, where the come together is when they go into tracking mode on Christmas Eve. You can watch Santa as he leaves the North Pole headed on his worldwide voyage in real-time. He visits countries around the world through the day and brings it home to the United States by Christmas Eve night.
Oh course, you really should be in bed by that time.
