San Francisco, Dec 25, 2017: Google’s Santa Tracker, which has been around for the past 13 years, is back to help children follow Santa Clause’s location and destination of next delivery.

It showed Santa and his reindeer Rudolph’s movements beginning on Sunday through web browsers, mobile web browsers, the Android app, the Android TV and and Chromecast, Time.com reported.

One can also get updates on his location through a Google Pixel or Google Home device.

Besides helping people monitor Santa’s location, the tracker also includes games and ways to learn about Christmas, such as lesson plans and video guides that teachers can download for students.

It can also help one to learn about the varied Christmas traditions followed around the world.

And it incorporates many games such as “Santa Dive,” which allows users skydive as Santa through hoops or a “Wrap Battle” game that requires children or anyone playing the game to hit the right notes at the right time.

According to a report in the Travelandleisure.com, several of the games also include coding to help acquaint kids with basic programming, all while taking part in festive activities like snowflake making and an elf dance party. (IANS)

Google is expanding its advanced location tracking feature for Android called “Emergency Location Service (ELS)” to the US.

Launched in 2016 and is currently available in 14 countries (excluding India), ELS provides accurate locations both indoors and outdoors by using a combination of GPS, Wi-Fi, mobile networks and sensors.

The location tracking service is compatible with Android version 4.0 and above.

“Google is deploying ELS in the US, including the Virgin Islands, in partnership with emergency technology company RapidSOS and wireless service providers T-Mobile and West,” Jen Chai, Product Manager, Android, Google wrote in a blog-post late on Wednesday.

“Wireless providers like T-Mobile have existing ways to share emergency locations with emergency centers, but this integration with ELS will help deliver higher accuracy locations faster than before,” Chai wrote.
